    If it lives up to the promise, it may well be a generational leap for simulation gaming. I have the Flyinside flight sim, which streams scenery on the fly, and as a proof of concept it is very impressive. That comes from a tiny dev team, just think what the combined resources of Microsoft might achieve.
    Imagine a future race sim that could provide any track or public road anywhere in the world streamed live into the game.

    Biggest drawback for me is that they seem a bit iffy on VR with FS2020, at least at launch. That would be such a shame if they don't implement VR.

    Yeah, if it had me looking to see the options of flight sim hardware. But my feelings are something could come out around the game release date. My thoughts atm, I am kind of holding on from now on on any purchases to see if I want to go the DD wheel route! I am kind of up in the air atm after seeing the Simucube 2 vs Fanatec, if it's better to wait!

    Flight sim gear is at least as deep a rabbit hole as race sim gear, but there is some good kit out there.

    Edit: in other news, I just picked up from one of the videos that this whole project started five years ago as a VR HoloLens demo, and when the top brass at MS saw the potential, they went the whole way to create a full on sim. This could indicate that VR is more of a possibility if its built from the ground up with this in mind. Fingers crossed, maybe not at release but there is hope at least.

    I registered a few weeks ago, but haven't heard anything. This title is certainly causing a buzz around the flight simming world.
