Microsoft Flight Announced

The Age of Empires Online press release also reveals preliminary plans for Microsoft Flight, a Windows-exclusive flight simulator that's the evolution of their long-running Microsoft Flight Simulator. The Microsoft Flight Website is live, offering a teaser trailer from the game that shows a biplane flying off into the sunset (or sunrise) over a body of water. They don't offer further details at the moment, but their description indicates they plan on making the game accessible: "'Microsoft Flight' will bring a new perspective to the long-standing genre, welcoming everyone, including long-time fans, to experience the magic of flight."

Keep in mind that the MSFS series...

Time to start shopping for new PC hardware...

I'd save that money if I were you. I don't think that they have removed the "simulator" part from the title accidentally. In fact I'm pretty damned sure that they did that fully on purpose to distinguish this new and accessible flight game from the sims of the past.
I am also sure that they don't give a rat's ass about the industry that is based on the sims of the past. If anything then they might be making a few bucks from the add-ons because of licensing fees but why would MS care about the hardware (when they have shut down their gaming peripheral division at a time when MSFS was probably near the pinnacle of its popularity) or the communities (when they have shut down their pretty popular "Zone" service)? Trust me. They don't give a fuck.
MS Flight as a part of their "Live" crap is going to be to MSFS what Windows Live Mail is to Outlook 2010. If that.
