"Twenty-eight years after the debut of Microsoft Flight Simulator 1.0, Microsoft Game Studios also announced the internal development of Microsoft Flight, a new Windows exclusive. Microsoft Flight will bring a new perspective to the long-standing genre, welcoming everyone, including long-time fans, to experience the magic of flight."

... That was a fast trailer... Didn't even show much :(... I would like to get a flight simulator game though.
I was never a big fan. I remember trying one a few years ago and not even being able to get off the runway. But I hope they don't try to dumb it down and make it arcady for mass-appeal and alienate the people who stuck with the franchise (unless arcade mode is an extra on top of the sim aspects. in that case all the more power to them).
All the flight sim games were fun to a point.... I could never land any of the small planes, which i might add i can do in real life. The most fun was just flying around looking at the scenery.

The most fun is seeing if you can roll at last second so that you fly through the support cables of the Golden Gate bridge without tearing your wings off.

Why does everyone keep calling "flight simulator" a game? It is NOT a game any more than Starry Night or Real Flight -- both $300.00+ products, or even a typing tutor. In fact, flying schools use FSX to teach students radio navigation and how to navigate airports (ground control), get them familiar with ATC, ILS, IFR navigation, etc. When I brought my son to a flying school at Dupage Airport for his first introductory flight, the first thing they had him do in the orientation class is to familiarize himself using FSX. They routinely use FSX for their regular classes to teach students. We now have FS2004 and FSX, which we use all the time to learn stuff; -- and which I have invested $100's in add-ons. So, it is NOT a game, it is a SIMULATOR that actually teaches!
Everything looks better in the cinematics! I would be impressed if they were able to acieve that look within a DX11 enviroment?
Having played every version, I am sure I wont miss this one! I just hope that their Helicopter simulations are better in this version! That is one area that they have always been a little behind on. For training they only tend to have the most minimal controls they feel they can get away with. Most aircraft you can dowload almost a fully simulated cockpit and do even better when paired with proper control emulators. Yet the choppers always tend to be simplified?
Either way I will be waiting to see what this next generation brings!
WOOT flight simulator is back. so going to buy this once i find out i can preorder it.Was told flight simulator ended creating games, but glad to see the game is back.
Also i woulda made the trailer so much cooler. Maybe show some carriers having planes land and take off, or show a stunt plane race close up.
