Yep, think there's a lot of us thinking right now. . ."I told ya so. . . ." Shouldn't be a surprise to anyone really.
what the hell was MS Flight ?
I kept MS Flight on my system for 15 mins. They don't seem to understand our communtiy, the dedication and the disposalbe income that we have. Aviation is more than a game, it's a life long passion for me and I'm sure many more: it's not just a hobby!
If government was the answer, it was a stupid question!
AMEN Brother !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WHAT???? MS cancelled Flight!?!??!?! How am I going to sleep tonight? Oh, that's right...on my belly with my head cradled on my right forearm....just the way I sleep every night. No real surprise that Flight crashed already.....for me, it was dead before it was released to world.

I wonder what happens to any balance you had on the books to purchase any future addons ? Not sure what MS called it .
Unfortunately, MS has allowed the genre that they played a big role in defining, pass them by. Guess that shows what can happen when you let the "marketing / product development types", pitch a concept without proper research. They had their opportunities to make it whole, hale, and hearty, but chose the wrong road when they walked away from the community. The road they chose led them right out of the market.
It was, as they say, "Just a matter of time".
MS Flight didnt last Long at All

Just found out the answer to my stupid question . Their server is still up and I noticed they just added a Cub yesterday so apparently no more future development . I did think the scenery was good but I wish I had not even gotten involved with it in the first place . I loved their Stearman too.
Well I'm one who tried to support Flight by purchasing the island package and Alaska,only to be really disapointed with the Alaskan scenery.But all the time thinking maybe they would see the light,now I,m sorry I ever gave them a dime
Let's hope P3D gets enough support; at least it holds the potential of taking flight simming even further than FSX.
Just my 2 cents
"I fought the law and the law won ..."
As a Flight Simulator user since version 4.0, I have used and enjoyed every version up to FSX. I did purchase P3D when LM released the academic version earlier this year. P3D is FSX with needed refinements which is fantastic. I even spent the time to try out MS Flight, as this "software" had great graphics and a new take on the genre. I found myself going back to FSX or P3D after completing gold in all the challenges, so what incentive is there to keep playing.
Also MS Flight just wasn't as open as I would of liked it to be, I only spent like $4 and used some of my redeemed Bing.com points to get the other add-ons.
I wish that Ace's Studio wasn't disbanded because of what I read from the developer's personal blogs made it sound that FSXI would of leapfrogged the technology and overall user experience of the franchise.
Just my two cents, and I know you don't always get what you want.
No surprise here. Still not sure who Flight was aimed at. Serious flight simmers, serious gamers, I do not think so. Casual flight simmers, casual gamers, maybe. But one thing, if MS would have release more complete AC and scenery each month, Flight might have worked.
