Defensive much? I wasn't belittling it's achievement, just pointing out its flaws. Calm down. It's still technically impressive.
But THIS is what flying around google maps is.
you do understand that the screenshot I posted is a direct one from Google Earth's (which is the same as google maps) flight simulator?
Comparing MSFS to google maps means not knowing absolutely anything about it. There's a LOT more to it than simply slapping satellite imagery into the engine.
Again, lemme know when anyone else will have something comparable on consoles combining similar fidelity with similar scale. I have a feeling I'll wait for a long time.
