Same, big fan of flight sim back in my pc days, very tempting

Wish they showed more of it at the conference. I grew up with flight simulator, and it's been long absent. I've been saying for a few years now that MS should bring the franchise back.

I'm not alone :-) it was the best game of E3 for me... looks amazing and will get for PC...

Add me to the same list. I could not believe it was coming to console. My guess is, not only will we be getting an Xbox flight controller for it, past PC sticks may be made to also work with it. Id love to see a flight yoke and rudder peddles, maybe the ability to use our phone or tablet for instrumentation. Im also hoping for force feedback sticks to make a long awaited comeback. God I loved how the Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback 1 & 2 felt.

Microsoft really needs a developer to make Flight Combat games next gen. Im tired of this BS one or two games a generation. Anyone know how Ace Combat 7 sold?

It looked unreal, especially the lighting. I wonder what kind of specs the PC they used had to run that trailer...

I don't see it happening, but I hope they add dogfights

Flight simulator isn’t about dogfighting. You need dcs world for that one

Game is pretty liberal use of the term for Flight Simulator. I love the series, but it's kind of dry for what I see most people saying they like. It's not exactly action packed, and most of the game is just flying a plane from one place to another, like you would a regular plane. Some versions had challenges, which added game play elements, but I'd say it's still kind of dry.

Before anyone picks this up on the reputation of the series, they should really look at what they're getting into. It's a rewarding experience if you are into a pure simulator....more so than you'd see in a driving game which is more forgiving of mistakes....but will probably be a one time play for anyone looking for purpose from the game.
