Flight Simulator X lands on Steam at an 80 percent discount
Dovetail Games' updated, Steam-friendly version of Microsoft's seminal Flight Simulator X only just reached Steam yesterday but is already being swept up in one of the digital retailers' seasonal sales.

For the next 24 hours, Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition is available on Steam for $5. At the end of the day, the game will jump in price to $12.49 (which is still only half of its regular $25 price) and will remain that way until the end of the Steam Holiday Sale on January 2.

Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition includes not only Flight Simulator X, but also all of the content found in its official expansions. Dovetail's agreement with Microsoft precludes the developer from updating the game's graphics, but the studio has added new multiplayer functionality reliant on Steam instead of the now-defunct GameSpy service and has made it possible to run Flight Simulator X under the Windows 8.1 operating system.
