Microsoft makes the flight series, so why not for x box?

why am i here???????
microsoft does not deal with flight sims anymore though. and they never made on for the xbox cause the xbox does not have strong enough hardware to run them. even though the graphics of an xbox are nice they are not strong enough to run a simulator. and the ram is not enough to run one either. thats what ive figured out.

The sad answer is than every game on xbox or ps3 are franchises that have to sell a big amount of every game they produce. There is not that kind of market for a simulator. I definetly buy one if they do. You could try Il2 war games they are very good. In ps2 there is one called (skyodissey) not flying combat more like plane adventure very good but very small sales.

MS makes the box, other software houses make the games that run on the platform. So you should be asking those game houses why they don't make flight sim games.

I've played flight sims on consoles, they don't belong on a console.

There are 3 RC flight simulators for the Xbox. They are Demos you can get if you have an Xbox Live Gold membership. They are free to try and you can purchase for a few dollars if you want the full version. They are not nearly as good as Realflight but I have tought my 7 year old on them. One is for Heli and the other two are for RC planes.

Press your Xbox button on your controller.
Select Game Marketplace.
Select Demo at the top of the screen.
Hit the "Y" button to bring up the search function.
Type in RC flight sim.
Download free demos and enjoy it for what it is.
