But nah, it's prolly more marketing doublespeak.
again, i will believe it when i see it. And it will take at least few months if not years to people get over all the past bull**** MS pulled.

Patch for FSX please becouse it is ridicolous how much of a perfomance impact the large amount of houses and fooliage makes when comparing to games like Wings of Prey that runs silky smooth 60fps on moderate hardware with far more terrain objects than FSX better visuals.

Even if MS was a huge supporter of PC games today I doubt a game that old would get a performance patch.

Eh, you would think they would care. Such a huge following + 98% of real pilots use it. Why they cancelled that division, I'll never know. Retards.

At least I get Fable 3 on PC out of this. I admit I enjoyed the first two games.

Blizzard and Valve are the only things that Microsoft have going for them and quite frankly, I'm surprised to see that they haven't bought them out (or at least tried to).

I can only assume that GFWL was supposed to be M$'s answer to steam but failed miserably and is at this point just a thorn in the side of PC gamers who get MS games.

I wonder how much of MS's gaming revenue comes from Steam and WOW?

I mean come on. Remedy works on this amazing engine that was specifically targeted at high end enthusiast PCs only for it to be butchered to work on a console at 30 fps.
They didn't "butcher" anything. It's a 5 year old game engine. It looks just as good, if not better than it did back at E3 08 when they were showing it off using the havok physics and quad core CPU processing.

Somehow I don't think it was running at 960x540 in those E3 demos.
