Oh no, here we go again... :-roll Mohawk there's nothing to shoot at in FSX, plus the Flight Simulator franchise has a huge add-on community that keeps the whole thing going. Something like that could or couldn't work but that's up to Redmond, there sure enough interest in the subject... Nothing on XBOX has the kind of community behind any of it's titles the way FS has which add so much to the experience of the basic sim. Please do a search on the forums and you'll find more than enough info on this topic as it's an issue that's been discussed into the ground over the last few years. Some like the idea and some don't...Now I must sign off on this issue as some of us are forbidden to talk too much about the subject...

I sure hope it will, the games look amazing if you have a HDTV. Ofcourse it will not be the simulator with all the addons we have on the PC, but less could do it.And it doesnt have to include the whole world, i would like to see a place like the Seattle area with great graphics and a mission based career, bush flying missions where you start a small company and build it up from scratch. Ah well im probably dreaming or what.

From what I saw on the unweiling at E3, you will be able to download extra content with the 360. Both freeware and payware.Balooba

That response is unnecessary and uncalled for. He's entitled to his opinion as much as you are. Please refrain from repeating that type of message in the future.

Well, I didn't see that. All I saw was yours, and even with his initial post, yours was still uncalled for.

Flight Simulator X for Windows XP/Vista is the only new version we've announced. As usual, we can't comment on unannouced products.

I think that anyone who wants Flight Sim on the Xbox, is the sort of person that would get bored of it very quickly.On the plus side..It might get a few more people into the 'real' PC version..Steve

Games on consoles have live a 3 months, and people playing console needs some action every 7 seconds. How is FSX going to deliever that?

At the end he is saying something like the Xbox and Vista will "merge" closer together and basically games should run on both.

Actually if I could still have my CH yoke and pedals, a keyboard and my addons I'd take a $500 Xbox 360 that runs FS very well over a $1500 PC that runs it ok....

>>You should watch the Peter Moore interview at Gamespot.>>>>http://www.gamespot.com/search.html?qs=pet...type=11&type=11>>>>Fyi, it also has flight sim running in the background ;)>>I couldn't sit through all of it - does he eventually mention>MSFS or is the feature of the video the fact that he is>sitting in front of the same video loop that the MSFS team>lead was?>>Thanks I think it's GREAT if they do. Of course you will not have the advantage of any 3rd party developer's offerings and sales for FS in general and when 'ported' from the PC version will do nothing but help the FS series to stay alive and thrive.[h4]Randy J.

Has anyone heard about the average number of frame-rates that a good PC System will get with FSX? I Currently run an Intel Pentium 4, at 3 GHz with 1.5 GB RAM and a Radeon X-800 Pro AGP Video Card. I still get slow framerates when I get close to an airport that has some realistic level of detail added. I really hope the FS Team develops the FSX to deliver a minimum of 30 FPS under most simulation conditons. Mark :)

Randy,If I'm reading you right, and you're saying we wouldn't be able to make addons for the Xbox; then I believe you're flat out wrong.That's a ridiculous statement to make. LOL. In fact I think it's easier for users to get addons for consoles then for PC's. The exposure alone would greatly help all 3rd party developers. It would probably be much easier for the customer to get access to them, not to mention the ease of any technical issues given the fact that 'IF' a version was made for Xbox, it would be a fairly light one.We need to stop saying and thinking how hard it would be to do something and just do it. Quit thinking about it. You guys do that way too much. Get out of your little tunnels for just a second and look at the big picture.I think it's very clear now that we have the technology to do what we want to do now with this new version. We may not get everything we want, but we'll get more than enough to make a real run at things in terms of expandability, realism, etc.Sorry to be so harsh, but I'm really going to start taking a tougher stance on these issues in the hopes that we can change our attitudes a little more for the better. You all know that the FS team are here in these forums and very active and outspoken for the first time. When they hear people say that we can't do something on a constant basis, attitudes like that will tend to move right up the chain and we run the risk of them taking the same approach to each and every new issue or version. I don't want to put that mindset in their heads.That's just my opinion, btw.
