    Windows 11 Announced and Set to Release this Fall as a Free Upgrade

    Windows 11 release date, price, and other details revealed.

    Well look at me with egg on my face. Earlier this month, Microsoft announced that they were going to show off the "next generation of Windows" during an event set for today (June 24th). I was so sure that it was just going to be an update to Windows 10 because, well, Microsoft said that Windows 10 was going to be the "last" version of Windows that they release.

    Well look who was wrong. This...

    Microsoft Flight Simulator Install Size Cut in Half in New Update

    Microsoft flight Simulator is a gigantic game. After all, it's a flight simulator that lets you fly literally anywhere on planet Earth. The minimum storage requirement for the game is a whopping 150GB but the installed size is often much higher than that, upwards of 170+GB in size. This probably annoys a lot of people regardless of whether of not they have monthly download caps from their ISP.

    I mean, it's not actually confirmed as exclusive or anything but c'mon.

    There have been some recent leaks of Starfield popping up on social media and compiled into a Reddit thread. They aren't terribly hard to find but they're also not terribly interesting either. This prompted some fresh discussion from GamesBeat's own Jeff Grubb.
