Will the Real Microsoft Flight Sim Please Stand Up?

Recommended Posts

I know this may be kind of silly but as most of us have seen in the past few months that the new Micsosoft Flight Simulator is known by many names in these and other forums...Will the Real Microsoft Flight Sim Please Stand Up?1. FS9?2. FS2004?3. FSCOF?I have never seen this happen before in any other version of M$FS as well as any other flight simulator... This is my take on it so far. We know that the name on the box is Flight Simulator 2004", but M$ also called the install folder "Flight Simulator 9" as well as putting the extended title on the box as "Century of Flight" 'Sheeze, this is enough to drive an armchair flyboy into getting his medical revoked!' :-)What do you folks think it should be called once and for all?

Doesent really matter what its called any normal person would recognise any of those names as flight simulator 2004. I personally use FS9 and fs2004.Andrew

I think it should be called FS2004, since its really called "Flight Simulator 2004". But having 3 sims with the same first 3 numbers (2000, 2002, and 2004), its easy to get them confused LOL. I don't really like FSCOF, because I can't type it fast :-lol. As for FS9, its short and to the point, but it 'feels' old. I grew up with FS3, FS4, and FS5.1, and it seems that FS9 sounds like your referring to an older sim :-lol.
