The game will not have loot box AT LAUNCH so it can easily pass lower ESRB standard. They can/will easily put that back after that.

I don't understand why this wasn't obvious since the start of the project. OF COURSE a flight sim needs VR. There's a piece of software that lets you use VR with Flight Sim X and it's amazing how much more real it feels to be sitting in the cockpit and looking around naturally with your head. Sims are a perfect fit for VR.

Because hardcore/professional flight "simmer" don't prefer VR.... Professional flight simulator need/prefer real instrument panels and multi-screen setup. VR goggles is actually not a good simulator training tool (too cut off from the real world). Flight sim is not only about flying. It is also about instrumental controlling/learning. It is much better the pilot actually TOUCH these buttons/switches/levers. I think MS did the right thing not to spend the initial development time into VR. Map details, plane/aerodynamic physics, atmospheres/weather physics are much more important and MS actually have no less than 5 development teams working on these.

Flight sim and even driving sim DON'T need VR!! It is still a gimmick tools at this point.

Some of you who cheap shot MS above have no idea how serious MS develop this version of Flight Simulator.

https://youtu.be/MOPIjzzH1G8

Here are some high tech stuff for it
* Map available: Only ONE map - the Planet EARTH via Microsoft Bing! 3D objects (AI create trees & building...) stream from MS servers!!
* Water affected by wind, created wave
* 32 lays of atmospheres and clouds form depend on them
* full day/night and yearly cycle. Position of sun and moon and stars map correctly.
* aerodynamic physics completely rewritten
* and many more....


I will say this "game" is MUCH MORE technological advance than Star Citizen.

Bungie CEO and staff should feel extremely pleased that their company out of Activision/Blizzard at the right moment....

Why? Do you have comparison numbers from B.net? Do you know how many peak simultaneous players Destiny 2 had on B.net until the move?

Why? Because people are leaving other Activision/Blizzard products (many even cancel Bnet account) because of this and you think Destiny 2 will not be part of the collateral damage if it is still in Activision?

Let's see how many Blizzard zombie fans are still paying stupid $$$ to go to Blizzcon 2019 and SUPPORT them. Gamer are some of the most spineless being.

Gamer complain pre-order items, they keep pre-order games, even in digital version

Gamer complain microtransactions in games, games with shitload of MTX are making shit load of $$$

Gamer complain loot boxes in games, games with loot box are selling in billions of $$$. (Fifa, CoD, ...)

Gamer complain EGS, shit load of gamer buying games from EGS...

Gamer hate Steam, they still use Steam everyday....

Ucrazy

All Chinese companies are controlled by the government. It's not like the US, where Apple refuse to comply with government requests and take them to court. In China, if you don't comply, you go to jail.

Finally someone in this forum really know how Chinese businesses operate in China. The bigger a Chinese company has become the more China gov need to control. Alipay is a good example.

The whole gaming industry is already controlled by China $ (which controlled by China gov...
)
Remember the Taiwanese horror game Devotion by Red Candle?

40% of EGS is owned by Tencent which controlled by China gov.

It feels like watching a fan made movie perform by some random people. Example: without that Arc reactor in that guy's chest, I wouldn't know he is Iron Man. It took me a while to realize the guy with glasses is Hulk.

Video games are expensive to make.... game developers making record revenues, game dev/publisher CEO & top level personnel are pocketing 8-digits salaries... and you guys are ok current AAA titles have these shit features....

Are you guys really that stupid to agree "expensive" AAA titles cannot make profit without microtransactions and loot box mechanics??

The Terminator universe is very fascinating and I never stopped wondering why the big film studios and game publishers don't hire a truly AAA studio to develop a game. Don't overthink the project, don't even put John Connor there, make the story about something smaller than defeating the whole Skynet - just war with the machines with the best possible FPS mechanics.

A multiplayer Terminator game would rock, too.

What?? You want a Star War Battlefront II version of Terminator that only play in Battle Royale mode with lots of loot box microtranscations??
