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.”

You also know that if they rush to get VR support at launch, it will probably not be optimized and you're just going to see those same VR pussies get their panties all wadded up over THAT shit. OMFG, what-fucking-ever.

Yeah, this but in a more calm voice.

Sure VR can be slapped in for the 'ohh look at that' thrill but to do VR properly so you can read and control all the controls of a complex airliner is going to be a huge undertaking to get 'right'.
