I doubt it- there are too many controls for FS9 (and will be for FSX) to use solely on a controller Wink

Welcome To Flyaway Steveselby. Cheers!

No, Flight Simulator X won't be on XBOX, PlayStation or Game Cube. XBOX is good but it's for games. Flight Simulator is not a game, at least not in the usual sense. There are no scores, levels, goals or ranks. There is no progression of any kind. No locked content, no guns or bombs and you can't die. Flight Simulator simulates real civil aviation.

Combat Flight Simulator is available that is a game but because of the complex controls, it won't be on any game consoles either.Smile

yes that's true. Microsoft might come out with a joystick or yoke for the Xbox 360 just like what Playstation did for the PS2. You never know what they might come up with next.... Wink

Welcome to Flyaway steveselby! Cheers!

Whether they will or not is anyones guess.

To silence the purists, it is certainly possible to produce a version of FSX for the XBOX. The whole game on a high capacity disc - why not? That's how all the other games work after all.
As I understand it, you can nowadays download extras via your XBOX for certain games, skins, cars and what not. But this is where the similarities end.

In FS, be it 8 - 9 - or X you can retrofit aircraft, you can edit .cfg files, create your own textures, aircraft sceneries and practically anything you can think of you can tweak and modify in FS to your liking. The possibilities are endless.

And this is the reason why FSX for the XBOX would be a bad idea, not the 'fact' that FS is not a game.

Allow me to translate:

Who knows what MS will do.
Anything is technically possible.
FSX on Xbox is a bad idea.

The bottom line- No, I don't think they will.

I dont think it will be on the 360 ether but you never know the 360 has USB ports they very well could make a patch so you could attach a joystick/yoke the works lets just say I think it will be better on the computer anyways lol.

Even though the XBOX 360 is marketed as a game machine, I don't think it has to be just for games. I wish Microsoft would take a chance and put the power of the XBOX 360 to good use by making a version of Flight Simulator for it.

The unfortunate thing is that all the peripheral ports for the XBOX 360 are designed specifically for Microsoft products, so even if you wanted to plug a cool 3rd party flight yoke into it you wouldn't be able to. It's unlikely that Microsoft would design a flight simulator flight yoke for the XBOX.

The Playstation 3 will have regular USB ports, and should support all sorts of peripherals, but I doubt they'll come out with any sort of flight sim either. It's really too bad. The graphics on these machines would make a flight sim look really, really good.
