Although it is a clear promo for MS Edge capability, it is really strange to read about the link between this fluffy mobile like app and MS ledgend and pioneer in computer gaming and Simulation FS, that the same company put to rest in moments of Marketing confusion… If I was the Marketing specialist behind this promo / demo, I would have avoided making any link to FS… It is nothing to be proud of especially after Flight flop… As it is already mentioned in a previous comment…

You can put a light hearted spin on it but it’s horrid just the same.
