Please UBI... Include TrackIR (http://www.naturalpoint.com/trackir/) support for HAWK. It's the best accessory for any flight sim since the invention of the flight stick itself.

It's a small IR camera that tracks head movement and translates it into in game movement.

Check out the videos at the following link to see it in action.
TrackIR (http://www.naturalpoint.com/trackir/)


Moving Your Head Changes the View ::
As you move in your chair and rotate your head small amounts : your game-view will precisely correspond.

You never have to look away from the monitor because all aspects of your motion are amplified and adjustable.

Goes without saying.. if they're at all interested in roping in those who play real flight sims, they have to include TrackIR support. If they're only catering to the action crowd, they won't bother.

As of yet, do we even know if they have a cockpit view, or will it be the standard console behind-the-jet-cam (or the invisible cockpit)?

As for myself, I just can't play flight games without TrackIR anymore.. not trying to be snobby, it's just too painful to be restricted to looking straight ahead (or fiddle with a thumbstick to look around, or padlocking), after every other flight game of the last 5 years letting you look around effortlessly with TrackIr.

Not to be rude or anything, but I already made a post about this.

Since the cockpit view isn't a priority here, I doubt TrackIR will be incorporated. Would be nice to hear an official answer though.

Along those lines, for the 360 version, with the motion sensitive 360 controller in the works, it would be nice to have a version of TrackIR for the 360 based on the controller movement instead of head movement. If that were built in for when that system is out, it would be nice too.
