As far as I'm concerned its very much a "wait & see" attitude. I'm not going to pay huge amounts of money without knowing a great deal more than has so far been offered. Am leaning towards the Premium Deluxe edition but probably not until a couple of months after initial release. I would like to see some reports from ordinary users before taking the plunge and give the sim a while to iron out the kinks (First Service pack!!). The other thing I'm worried about is how often they update the sim and how much those updates might cost me.

Latest developer update from MS. Some interesting info about how commercial third-party developers will be able to operate - both through an in-app store and, as now, through their own portals. Also a little bit of info about the SDK.

Looks ok not one of the Airports that have been given a loving treatment. Just uses default buildings i guess!



Much thanks
