Totally misleading title....

 

I see no mention an FSX update only a new product based on MSFS and they will continue to distribute FSX

1. We hashed over all of this about a month ago.

 

2. There is no update to FSX, but to get it to work through Steam and to get multi-player to work. That's it. The FSX you have now is the FSX you will have forever. Your FSX Gold will basically be the same as the Dovetail Gold version. If you are getting OOMs now, you will still get OOM's using the new FSX version.

 

3. Nobody knows what 2015 will bring, but speculation is that anything new will be based off the Flight engine and not the FSX engine.

Here we go again...

1. Sigh!!, yes we have.. It has been dug up so many times...

2. Yup.. instead of buying DVD's, you are buying downloads. Microsoft now does not have to carry inventory nor get involved  in worldwide shipping anymore.

3. Pure speculation, no facts at all. Flight!.. it was regarded by many as being very arcade like! Even the free version was stopped!

 

Think about all those developers out there.. already developing for FS9 (yes, still) FSX ( a 6-7 year old program that needs a lot of tweaks to get going) P3D (continually being updated).

Will they have the time, money, resources & interest? Will we?

Very misleading title. They're not creating an update for FSX, they're releasing FSX again on Steam with some minor improvements.

Will be interesting to see what kind of liberties they take as they make the .exe Steam compatible.

That's just what I was thinking.
