Flight Sim X demo
The demo for Microsoft's Flight Simulator X is scheduled to premiere at 8 PM EST. Included in the download will be two airports and three missions, all located on the tiny island of St. Maarten in the Caribbean; among the aircraft will be a glider and a Beaver float plane. Though it was meant to be a showcase for Windows Vista, FSX is releasing October 6th, and is just the latest in a series of games that reach back to 1977, when it was first developed by subLOGIC.
