really? MS always gives them away with GwG a few weeks before they get delisted.
All previous ones are delisted. Only FH3, FH4 and FM7 will be available to buy digitally after September 15th. FH3 will be next in a year.

Wow, can't believe I never noticed lol



Already spent a few hours with Yoku's Island Express.
Pretty good but far too easy (as in impossible to lose). On the other hand, that makes it a really relaxing experience.

That ain't happening in all seriousness so let's go with 20in20

16+ studios in 2019 and going into next gen, how times have changed.

Damn...MS beating my own prediction in a year!  :P  

I'm still banking on Skybox Labs being acquired at least by the time Halo Infinite comes out.  Their current workload already has them as--essentially--a MS 2nd party studio with intimate knowledge of 343's Slipspace Engine.  Everything about their collaboration & side-project platformer suggests this is the perfect time bring them under the 1st-party wing.

I'm thinking the licenses for both FH3 and FM7 will be a bit longer then previous games since there is no new title coming out this year.  Also since FH2 on the 360 had less content and no DLC its still available digitally.  But on average all the Forza games from FM2 until FM6 had a four year digital life cycle. 



Microsoft Flight Simulator's First Technical Alpha is Coming in September

Microsoft Flight Simulator's Insider Program has launched, offering prospective players previews of the roadmap, early builds and updates from the developers. To start things off, you can check out the development roadmap now. 

First, though, you'll need to sign up with your Microsoft account. It will just take a second and you can do it here. Or you can just take a look below.

This month, Microsoft will be doing a couple of media updates, so expect screenshots and clips, along with a bunch of internal tests. Insiders will also get an update on the build program, with a technical alpha planned for mid September. 

Along with the roadmap, the first Insider update also showed off a pair of fetching screenshots and four very brief videos.

In late September, Microsoft will start releasing previews of its feature overviews, which will then start appearing in October. The Feature Discovery series will put the spotlight on the world, weather, aerodynamics and those sexy airplane cockpits.
