23979 MS Flight Sim 2018
I am strangely excited about the upcoming launch of the new Flight Simulator. Already have a very good X-Plane setup, but they seem to have done a right number on the FS scenery this time, albeit an initial 90Gb (!) install.

Anyone else, at all? Gonna need a bigger PC.

Well I've heard mixed reviews. I'm not sure it will take off.

Can you play with a 360 controller? If you can I might get it.

I am definitely looking forward to it, I am about five levels of sad old man deep in to flight sims, in that I like to be the pretendy air traffic controller online more than I like being the pretendy plane driver.

I could imagine a .gs virtual airline.

Pretend air traffic is serious geekdom - I salute you!

I once spoke with a chap in a small rural pub in Lancashire shortly after Sullenberger had pulled off that water landing in New York. He said it wasn't that hard and he could do that in his flight simulator.

>90Gb

Not even that huge by modern standards. GTA:V is that size and the latest CoD is something like 140GB.

I've got mixed feelings about the latest FS release - they've clearly put the work in, but the pricing structure is a bit of a piss take.

There are more expensive editions which contain more planes and more unique airports. I think the edition with the most stuff is about £110.

I've seen this "it's a sim so we can charge you 'sell a kidney' prices" lots and I was wondering if anyone knows whether it's just a cash grab, they won't sell as many copies as CoD or the MCC so they have to charge more to break even or are there actually additional costs involved with making sims that justify higher prices for the customer? It seems to me that it's often just a case of a captured audience who can't "vote with their feet" because some sims have de facto or near monopolies on their genre.

The standard edition of Flight Sim is among the 100+ games you can play for a month for £1 and £4/month thereafter.

They're a for-profit company, they're just charging as much as they think they can get away with.

I've got no problem with DLC in principle, but I hate day zero DLC and "premium editions". Salami-slicing a game on release day just feels grubby and exploitative, especially when you're parcelling off some of the most desirable content.
