Maybe, just saying there's an opportunity to get to this point with less money once the flight sim is done.
The biggest issue is that high systems fidelity is very limited in terms of market. MS can definitely reuse the graphics and framework for some action flight game for sure probably not worth the time in making study level combat planes. Love to be proven wrong so there is an alternative to DCS but it is a road they may not wish to walk.

Not sure why the sub "worrying" comes from? Did the old games do that?
Also there is already gamepass and they wont put a sub on sub.

I hope the game somehow manages to give something nice at 1Mbps download ... if there's one game i could accept playing not in offline mode, it's that one.

Is is possible to update your hardware info? I have a new computer with 32GB RAM now, but the old system I registered with only had 16GB.

Soundscape Feature Discovery vid. It's incredible, like I'm amazed at what they are doing with sound in MFS:

Damn, it already looks incredible but it sure sounds good too ! I'd never thought I'd be hyped for a Flight Simulator game one day. To me it feels like a Star Citizen but with planes: complete immersion at an amazing scale.
I can't wait to be able to just fly around freely surrounded by such gorgeous visual and audio effects. Props to Asobo Studio, they are going way beyond anybody's expectations I think.

I got the invite but it's MS store only and the page gives a completely contextless error when I try to open it. Is the alpha live yet?
