Although the graphics looks outstanding... But it says alot when intended for Xbox. Tells me the cockpit functionality will not be as detailed as some of us are use to. I think this was their aim when they announced Microsoft Flight years ago. Intended to create and bring aviation awareness to the gaming console. So it will most likely have limited functionality.

Like I said, it's pretty!

I wonder if top of the range machine (i9 with a 2080RTX) will run this at max settings. :?

Due to the price increase in ammunition, do not expect a warning shot.

I wonder. Its cool visuals though. But for realism I wonder how many will opt for this Flight sim. I would rather give it a few years after its release before doing such upgrade. As it will be an expensive one.

It's also for PC and since microsoft is investing heavily in cloudgaming you may not need a high spec gaming PC to get the best graphics.

Yeah as much as I can remember. It was also intended for Xbox and PC. So I think they have waited it out and now finally making a come back with their new sim.

Yeah true, hopefully they will bare those in mind who can afford an expensive gear in order to achieve the graphics as advertised. Im sure alot will benefit from it as a game and want to learn more what flying is all about.

I think FS fits perfectly in Microsoft's cloudgaming strategy:
If Microsoft truly wants to create a “Netflix for video games,” then these new Xbox Game Studios members will have to create exclusive games that really convince people to subscribe to Xbox Game Pass"
It's exclusive, has a long rich history with many dedicated fans and manages to inspire new generations.
Also flight simulator is one of those applications that will not likely suffer due to lag issues like first person shooters and racing games will. And then they are advertising it will be available on xbox game pass, which means flight simulator will be a subscription rather than a program you can buy and own.

Totally agree. Just weird they are not talking about it at E3. Maybe not on a level to demo anything yet.
