    Mad Catz Interactive, Inc., announced today the launch of Saitek Combat Pilot, a unique, flight-based MMO (massively multiplayer online) experience which allows simulation enthusiasts from around the world to gather, interact and fly with each other as they engage in simulated air combat.

    Published by Mad Catz and developed by the Company's internal ThunderHawk Studios, Saitek Combat Pilot represents the first truly interactive, multiplayer air combat simulation built around Flight Simulator X from Microsoft (sold separately).

    Looks like it'll be subscription based, about $11.99/mo.

    Hmmm...more interested in Star Citizen and Squadron 42 at this point :/

    But thumbs up on their attempt into the flight sim MMO genre. Hope it turns out good.

    I hope it's not just built on top, as good as FSX is it also lacks a lot.

    They will have to make a really good go at this because competition is quite strong (Eagle Dynamics with it's DCS series (which is in my opinion THE simulator to beat) and Flaming Cliffs).

    EDIT: after having another look at this, yep not even close
