Well I'm going to be very cynical, sorry to be a downer but I'm very doubtful there'll anything to hold the attention of us proper flight simmers. It's a pretty video but we've seen this all before from Microsoft with Flight, aimed at casual gamers and revenue heavily dependent based on MS selling a lot of rushed DLC, probably ortho sceneries looking at that video. There'll be a few select places where it looks very pretty and detailed like the video (I'm not convinced that airport stuff is in-game footage), then everything else will likely be rubbish and/or cost extra. It'll either run roughly or there'll be no systems depth, especially as Xbox One isn't all that powerful. Wouldn't be surprised if third party developers are entirely locked out the ecosystem or have to pay licensing to MS to have it distributed via their platform.

EDIT: wondering if it'll be cloud based photo scenery, with the whole game on a subscription basis. On the plus side graphics suggest a possible evolution of the game engine used in Flight which seemed pretty solid but lacking in content. But a clean break to something like Unigine or Outerra engines might be better.
