Question about steam versus direct download from MS

Recommended Posts

Does getting the steam version save disk space? I use steam for Aeroflight fs2 and I like it. Never crashed and loads up fast, auto updates...so I'm leaning towards steam for msfs2020 unless there is some advantages to getting the direct download?

Same product, different shop. How could there be any difference in disk space? You already have Microsoft Store and the Xbox client built-in to Windows 10, whereas the Steam client is an additional install with an associated bandwidth and disk space reduction, however slight.

I've bought direct and would expect to get any official updates, patches and DLC before other outlets.
