Just some interesting numbers.

Recommended Posts

Was just looking around on Steam and noticed some interesting numbers.

 

Flight Simulator X: 121 IN GAME, 375 ONLINE

 

Microsoft Flight: 85 IN GAME 316 ONLINE  

 

Not too shabby at this late date for a game cancelled just months after its release.

Interesting indeed.

 

I wonder what the "profile" of those Microsoft Flight users might be.

I think "online" means that their computers are online (Steam running in the "online mode" as mine does).

Right now, I see:

 

1887 playing FSX:SE

 

0 playing MS Flight.

 

Very interesting numbers indeed. :smile:

Yeah those numbers are morel like what I expected...  4k concurrent players still doesn't seem like much though.  I guess there are still a lot of people that didn't buy it on Steam, so this wouldn't account for them.

Interestingly, it is higher than Train Simulator, so they have more concurrent players on their (old re-released) flight sim than their train sim.

The future looks bright! That is about 20% of some AAA titles. Infact nearly as many copies of FSX Steam sold as copies of the hit title "The Division", although there are alot more players online (possibly due to the fact that the Division is an online only game).

TS was getting old. I suspect the new engine will pep things up a bit.

You mean on steam?

 

PC sales pale in comparison to console these days.
