New MS Flight Sim Insider Program Open

Recommended Posts

From reading that and the X-Box insider forum info it appears that the new sim will be X-Box and Windows 10 PC's. No support for Windows 7. That alone kills the deal for me.........Doug


Intel 4790K CPU, MSI Z97 Gaming 7 motherboard, Noctua NH-U12S cooler, Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB 2133 MHz RAM, nVidia GTX 970 GPU, Cooler Master HAF 932 Tower, Thermaltake 1000W Toughpower PSU, Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit, and other good stuff.

I have had a nightmare getting signed into the Xbox screen even though I have an account and even changed my password. Had to quit due to an appointment. Will try again later, I hope everyone else will have better luck. 


Thank you.

I'm sure the new sim, due out during 2020, will obviously NOT be optimised with an obsolete operating system, which, in itself, is not optimised for modern current hardware.

And the good news is that you can still upgrade to Windows 10 for free.

Win7 to Win10 is definitely an upgrade.

Probably won't help my chances but I signed up with all my 5 emails when it opened yesterday. I'll admit, I'm desperate.

Will this be hardcore or light weight gamer fare?

That's up to the third party support to decide. P3D can be played with an Xbox controller out of the box, doesn't have a study-tier plane by default, doesn't even have a weather engine. By that definition, P3D would practically be a lightweight arcade game.
