On Microsoft Flight Simulator VR Plans

In an audio interview with AVSim, talks with Microsoft's Jorg Newman and Asobo Studios' Sebastian Wloch about the upcoming revival of Microsoft Flight Simulator. An interesting element of this is highlighted by VentureBeat, where they note the discussion touches on how this oddly did not initially include plans for VR support until the prospect was raised by gamers. Word is this may not make it into the game for launch, but they seem committed to adding it as quickly as possible:
“Right after the E3 trailer came out there was a lot of people making that exact assumption, that ‘Oh yeah, this better be supporting VR right from the get go.’ It honestly wasn’t our plan. But we are listening, and we heard it, so we will try our darnedest to make it happen. Whether or not we’re going to pull it off for launch, we can’t commit to that at this point in time, but we are aware of the desire […] We will try to prioritize that over other things.”

I don't understand why this wasn't obvious since the start of the project.

The last MS Flightsim I bought was v4.0 around 1990. After 30 years of virtually no interest, I think I'm all in on this one. Seriously looks like a massive step forward from every other flight sim out there.


Flight Sim 5.0 was a pretty massive jump from 4.0. 5.0 is the first one I bought and it has always stayed as my favorite, or at least close to the top. Even though later versions got even more detailed and better in every way, there's still something about version 5 that I really like.

I recently bought a new sealed copy of 4.0 on ebay. It says it's from 1989 and is on 5.25" floppies. I hope my only 5.25" drive I have left still works. While I do have other methods to get it on that old machine, I like doing it the "right" way.

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.
