I hope if it's Xbox they allow use of a keyboard.

Looks lovely though, NASA grade PC required for that level. Next generation Xbox most likely too for that level of detail.

Looks like launch on PC with Xbox later.

If it's a new engine written from the ground up the performance maybe a pleasant surprise on todays machines.

Wow! My 360, Wii and my PS2 are all boxed away whilst I have to listen to my teens on their weapons grade PC and PS4 playing Fortnite.

Always wondered why there was never a decent flight sim available for consoles.

This could well convince me to get the new X Box.

From the website :

Microsoft Flight Simulator is the next generation of one of the most beloved simulation franchises. From light planes to wide-body jets, fly highly detailed and stunning aircraft in an incredibly realistic world. Create your flight plan and fly anywhere on the planet. Enjoy flying day or night and face realistic, challenging weather conditions.

So it sounds promising lets hope it's not dumbed down or at least has the option for people who want it to be 'as real as it gets'

Sounds like the next Xbox might be a bit of a beast so with keyboard support and maybe HOTAS ?

Scenery streamed ? Will they be selling regions I wonder ?

I can foresee a major pc upgrade being required, but if I can run it then it's a day 1 purchase for me.
I suspect add ons will go via a M$ store, so freebies may be rare, but put a PMDG/A2A level plane with that and I will need clean underwear smile
And it better have VR!

Assuming there’s decent ‘real world’ add ons available for an Xbox version of this I’ll be all over it. I was an avid PC simmer a few years ago but don’t think I’ve got the energy (or wallet!!) to get back into that world again.

It’s saying launching for Xbox One in 2020 so looks like current gen compatible

Hmm P4D is pretty much the FSX successor. Not sure how this new one will fit in . I hope its not an exercise in dumbing down the realism to allow xbox owners to do loops in jumbo jets.

Sounds like an initial pc launch with next gen Xbox after.

Trouble with P4D is the core sim in ancient tech. Bit like the 737 Max you can only bolt stuff onto it for so long before it crashes !

Not sure, announcement just said coming out for Xbox one so assumed it was designed for that. Either way I want!

That’s not the point, the original question was whether it will be for the next gen Xbox or the current one, which is what we were discussing.
