Nah. I’m ps4 gang :sunglasses:.


Tbh, I don’t really see how it’ll go too well on xbox. They’re going to have to cut out a lot of the interactivity in the sim as there’s only so many button assignments that you can do on a controller. It’ll end up being more like a game than a simulator.

I mean they are going to keep working with third parties to enhance the experience with additional peripherals… so it should get better. Some supported can be found here: https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4402318233874 so I wouldn’t say it’s all controller based. Would say it should be ok experience for a console imo. It will still be better on PC obviously as you have more options.

Not long to go for this now. I’m curious if anyone else in the community will be getting this on the Xbox Series X or S? I’m still curious around supported peripherals and I’m hanging on to see. I have downloaded the intelligent install file on mine which is available at the moment. This just basically puts you in a download queue.

@texasaviation I will totally join you if you get it.

Ok so since you’re a mod on their forum I have some questions to ask. Can I fly multiplayer on their even if I don’t have Xbox live? And is it possible to get the game even if I don’t have Xbox game pass? I’ll be playing on Xbox One S btw. I forgot whether I have a One S or X lol but I think One S

Pretty sure that’s different to the Series S?

I’ve had it for 3ish years so…

I don’t believe it’s supported.

panic attack 😮‍💨

I think they mentioned this in a recent Q&A and it’s TBC soon.

Yes, but you’d have to buy it I believe.

I am not in a financial position to buy a new Xbox come on Microsoft do some magic :weary:

They are working on something for Xbox One via XCloud.

Yeah and also proved you wrong (I think)

Lol yes. I just meant they haven’t officially supported yet as it’s still WIP. They said they were working on something for support as per stream above but no date. :wink:
