Hey! Why not port Crimson Skies 2 to PC?

OK. The hype is long over. Christmas is over. Why hasn't Microsoft ported this title to the PC?

It's not that I didn't want to buy a cheap little X-Box just for this game, it's that I wanted it on a system that uses a killer joystick and not a little hand held pad. I can't be the only one that thinks it just won't be the same on a console. Can I?

Actually the game is perfectly suited for a gamepad. As far as a flight sim goes it is a joke, as far as a fun game goes it is great. I would not touch it on the PC though. Not when I could be flying IL:2 FB or MSFS2004.

Crimson Skies 1 is good, but I'd like to play the next one without having to go buy a whole new system... stupid Microsoft...

So not only do I have to buy a console that has only one other game I would be interested in for about 3 hours, but I have to re-buy my Sidewinder to play this???
I'm already playing the first one for the fifth time. Nobody else has come up with even as near a great arcade dogfighter. Ever. Oh why oh why can't they come up with a WWI arcade type sim with a current level of graphics and gameplay? (I don't play to practice for my license; besides, those don't count toward your hours anyway.) The closest I ever felt a game got to flying a bi-plane was Aerial Odyssey for PS2 and you don't get to fight!
Can't we all just not get along (in circa 1914 aircraft that is)?

I wonder what the game developers think of this ironclad marketing decision.

Bill Gates is a pr!KK!!!! (Yes. I am the first person ever to say that. It's OK if the world is shocked. I understand.)

It just occurred to me that I've never tried it online! D'oh!

I'll probably get my ass whupped, but at least (if anyones' still playing) it might be neat.

(I still wish Gates would get that visit from the 3 ghosts on X-mas and NOT learn the error of his ways! boo-hwawhwahahahaaaa!!!!!!!)
