I know it was mentioned earlier for consideration, has a decision, yay or nay, been made with regards to it?

The XBox?

For real, though, I guess it could be a simplified version in the vein of Turn and Burn (Super Nintendo) vs. Fleet Defender (PC Sim). Maybe with all those tactical shooters, people are becoming more willing to LEARN a game before they can really do well and have fun with it.

don't underestimate the 360 - a superb piece of kit.

i have a buddy that plays il2 with a gamepad - and he does suprisingly well with it. about the only thing i think it needs is a POV control like trackir - probably more in line with the Wii controller methodology rather than reflections.

My my, what a closed mind, that's resistant to change, we certainly have. \:\) The last that I heard, was that one Publisher wanted them to release a X360 version as well as a PC version.

You're right, you are guessing. From your reply, I'm assuming that you've never played Over G Fighters on the X360? Over G Fighters is the equivalent, in terms of complexity, of the Strike Fighters series on PC. A post based on researched facts is always more interesting than reading someone's personal thoughts based on limited knowledge. \:\)

you misunderstand.

a good gamepad has more than enough resolution in the controls to allow GOOD control of an aircraft.

Well, basically it's as simple as this: publishers actually turn down any title of any genre that doesn't at least provide hope of a future next-gen console port.

About the control issue, somebody must follow this Mech game example and release a flight combat title with a bundled HOTAS/Pedals/headtrack combo like that! Logically it will be more expensive compared to a stock title, but an Over G Fighters/Ace Combat/Whatever with that kind of hardware will be a lot of fun and an interesting kit to any flight sim(game) collection. ;\)

So can I take that as a 'Yay', and if so, where can I place my pre-order? \:\)

It makes perfect sense.

If people didn't buy the Ace Combat games for PS2...do you think they would keep making them?

No matter WHAT they do it should be better than Zero-G fighters. I don't even HAVE a 360 and I can tell from the box that's a flaming pile of ****.

I don't recall any title called Zero-G fighters for the X360.

Do I need to say anything with regards to that, or is everyone thinking what I'm thinking? ;\)

Way to go Destruya, with your first post here. You've certainly gained the respect of the community with that little statement.

Spanish!!! Thanks for the "insult" man. :p

No that wasn't Spanish, it was Portuguese.

By the way, I'm joking about the "insult" part \:D
