Seems like Flight Sim X has gotten loads of coverage over the last two weeks. TV coverage where KING 5 News featured “Flight Simulator X” on the morning news section of KING 5.  The feature included a live teaser on KING 5 Morning news at 6:45 and three additional live segments on KONG between 7:00 and 9:00 a.m.  The segments included interviews and demos with Shawn Firminger, two beta testers, and a private pilot brought in by KING 5. The features and interviews were very positive and presented “Flight Simulator X” from a Seattle angle and highlighted the long history of the Flight Simulator franchise, the realism of the game, and mission-based gameplay.
