    I know a few weeks ago a flying game came out which lacked in a lot of areas. I just wished there was a nice flight sim or game for the Playbook. Does anyone know of upcoming titles?

    Was thinking the same thing just the other week. I know MS Flight SIM has always been a big hit, but I loved the old ATC flight sim from way back in the late 80's. Would love something like that.

    MS Flight Sim or an emulator would be pretty awesome!

    X-Plane is what we need! It's excellent on the iPad.

    The only thing I can see in App world is Armageddon Squadron. Seems to be the only half good flight related game. Looks kinda interesting, but not my cup of tea.

    There is one other game where you fly a bi-plane accross the screen, looks very VIC 20 to me.

    what would be better than playing a flight sims game on a plane... and telling the blonde next to you that you're acutally in control

    I agree, a flight simulator is really needed for the blackberry playbook.

    Yes I agree. For years I have used Clearview flight sim (an RC flightsim) for the computer and the developer 0f it recently released some free android apps in the android market. I am a registered user of his products so I'll give him a shout, make a request, and point him to this thread. Though it's a bit different than a flight sim where you actually fly the plane, an RC sim would be great too!

    The last good flight games i played was HAWX 1 and 2. I would buy a flying game on the PB at the drop of a hat.

    I wonder if 2.0 will allow you to play XPlane from the Android Market?

    Just tried converting, not compatible.

    I'm pretty sure he means the official OS 2.0 (non-beta)

    Some of us (including me) are still hoping more apps will work :P

    I doubt that those written in the ndk will though..

    I'd also like a flight sim, I'm to old for the shooter games or angry birds.

    Bummer. I don't have insight into the Beta 2.0 conversion process. Should I hold any hope that apps not compatible converting with the Beta 2.0 will miraculously be compatible with the full 2.0 release?

    I second the notion for Galaxy of Fire II. But wonder if the playbook would be able to handle a good old fashioned multiplayer dogfight in the skies. That would be really fun.

    I really hope for x-plane but let's be honest, we won't see a real flight simulator on a mobile device. At least not for good few years. These devices are just not powerful enough to run a full scale sim. Anyway x-plane is one of the reasons I can't wait for OS 2.

    Has anybody tried stealth chopper 3D? It looks like it might be more of a sim game and not as much an arcade game.

    I just downloaded it. It is a cross between arcade and flight sim. Runs well on the playbook with OS2.0 since it is an android game....

    If Xplane came to the playbook id be be willing to pay up to 3x as much as it is on itunes . Most likely itd be like 5x as much, like angry birds
