Back in January we were discussing pre-release imagery from the resurrected MS Flight Simulator. Apparently it's being released for sale tomorrow: $59.99 for the standard edition. It is listed as a download of over 100 Gigabytes. On my average-fast internet connection, that's a five-hour download. I'm not sure if there's a reduced size option, but that could easily be the minimum. The simulator also has significant hardware requirements, like most modern 3D games. In short, based on what I know about most NavList members computers, this is a "no go". If you still think you want it, buying a dedicated Xbox may be a better option than getting a new computer.
