Casual flightsim... interesting.

The flight model probably stinks, considering that MS laid off their entire flightsim division a couple years back. Hence... "casual". A shame.

Can't complain about free though. Still, if its not a good sim, its probably not worth the disc space to DL it. MS made the greatest flightsim for the longest time.. its a shame they stopped. I wonder how making a free game brings in more profit than the sim games would have, though? DLC I guess?

... I think they'll be DLC-milking it and expect to make their money from that. So free to play, but when you want new areas to fly in, or new planes, you'll probably have to pay.

Kinda worried about the whole 'casual' thing. I would have loved a gorgeous FullHD flight-sim, and this is obviously aiming for another audience, but I guess we'll have to so what it will bring.
