    And note that it said during the press conference that it's coming to Windows 10 PC and Xbox, lest anyone be worried about that.

    The night lighting and reflection off the aircraft! I'm at a complete loss of words.

    To the SOH Admin. Let's join the replies in this thread to the one started my TuFun, as his title reflects the sim only and it's now known it's not an XBOX exclusive. Thanks!

    Preview certainly looks very visually compelling. Certainly liked the land & city-scapes. Remains to be seen on which directions it goes - Realism, etc.
    I guess I really did not want to save for retirement anyways.....

    Well, this caught me flatfooted. I'm sure this is on par with the 64 Bit P3d V4 (series) and it looks fantastic. Now, I will just have to wait and see more info on MSFS 2019.
    My rig in only a couple months old and has the mobo/vid card and memory to run P3D V4 (that was why I did an upgrade but never did plunk down the $$$ for P3D V4 and
    all the upgraded addons that it would need. It looks now that and I'm sure the Devs will now have another moneymaker for them to cater (perhaps) to the new flightsim after
    just coding for P3D v4. At any rate, what ever 64 bit sim I go for, I'll have to pony up for the addons that I already have of P3D V3 (32 bit). I do like the trailer vid for the 2019
    flightsim but wonder what extent the freeware devs will cater to it as well and the payware folks.

    Currently, I am happy with what I have (P3D V3) and I know those that made the jump toe P3D V4 are even happier.
    With the announcement of FS 2019, I am at the crossroads of waiting for FS 2019 to come out (price $$$?) vs P3D V4 (Academic version).
    I saw the vid on Virtual pilot and not as impressed. Just my 2 cents....

    Thanks all for posting this! Like Gray Eagle I was caught off-guard on my flat-as-a-duck's feet! It will be interesting to see the progress as it moves forward.

    Hopefully this won't turn into the disaster that was "Microsoft Flight", but since they are marketing this for XBox as well it appears that it will have a similar structure; Basic simulation platform + pony up for super detailed aircraft and scenery. Don't count on ANY backward compatibility with either FSX or Prepar3D v.4...
    Just my two bits worth, and I'm really hoping this will happen.
    Expect banging, belching and an occasional manly fart as you roar down the runway at full power. (I have found that the engine can make similar noises)

    If were ever going to move forward we have to stop the backwards compatibility notion, its holding us back as painful as it might be.

    We have been waiting for this since 2006!
    Intel i-9 9900k @ 5.0 Ghz, EVGA 2080ti FTW3 11Gb, Corsair H115 PRO water cooler, Gigabyte Aorus Master motherboard, EVGA Super Nova 1000 watt G+ power supply, G.SKILL 64Gb ram @3800 MHz, HP EX 920 M.2 PCIe 3TB,Windows 10 Pro x64

    Well... This was certainly unexpected, to say the least...

    I agree with the concerns above though: let's hope this is not another "MS Flight" or "Flight Sim World" catastrophe...

    Soooo.... Did I get this right? The largest flightsim expo is currently being held in Orlando and Microsoft goes to the E3 to announce a new flight simulator?

    A flight simulator expo is going to have a few thousand attendees at best, and almost zero coverage from bigger gaming oriented websites. A presentation at E3 gets an audience of millions online, and a ton of coverage from big gamine sites, so this exposes it to a much larger potential audience than a flight sim expo.

    ummm... that shot of the tubeliner landing. Are we really going to have "on the fly" control over focal length and depth of field? Seriously? And in some of the shots, those clouds don't look 3D, more like a spherical photo projection...interesting

    I'm imagining we're seeing some preproduction shots. I'm happy. Backwards compatibility would be nice, but I won't be upset if it's not there.

    Good to have more competition for X-Plane. Maybe it'll force him to get ground and water handling worked out. Like others, after the MS Flight debacle, I'll hold my thoughts on FS19, but it looks good, psyched about the possibilities.

    That shot is great. If you look closely I'm the video you'll see the heat blur from the exhaust.
