    There's also a 4th option where one could go with both. Get X-Plane now, and pick up MSFS2020 after it comes out.

    Yes, the Xbox app on Windows 10 is essentially Microsoft's equivalent to Steam, Epic Games and Battle.net. You can browse, purchase and download games through it. All games are still downloaded,...

    That is exactly what they have said though. Coming to Windows 10 means it's coming to Windows 10 PCs. If it was being streamed, there would be no need to have different system specs beyond download...

    No, that is not how it works at all. Not sure where you're getting this idea from, but the sim is still very much installed like current sims are. The only streaming component is the scenery and...

    As Asobo has said, the PC version is coming first. Even though all of Microsoft's PC games have been moved under the Xbox umbrella and are being distributed through the Microsoft Store, they are...

    The NDA covers everything from features in the sim, to technical details, and how it runs, which is essentially what you're asking. Alpha testers aren't even meant to let family or friends watch over...

    Due to the NDA they agreed to, those alpha testers aren’t allowed to answer questions like this. Hence the need to wait until either an open beta or, most likely, the final release.

    Yep, the best bet, if possible, is to wait for the sim to be released and read some reviews.

    The specs Microsoft released are meant to provide reference points, not specific cards. So you can use...

    Provided people on both sides can avoid turning it into a flame war, like they did elsewhere, I don't see why you couldn't talk about VR in the existing forums. Maybe take the hardware aspect to the...

    Some backwards compatibility is a good thing, however, going too far can be more hindrance than help. In this case, I think it would be better for the sim to keep it to a minimum to allow the sim to...

    As I was saying, the new sim has not been released and no one outside of Asobo or the alpha testers knows how well the sim runs, so no one knows what GPU would be best for a triple monitor setup or...

    The new sim supports the FSX flight model, but it isn’t clear how this applies to add-on aircraft. In other words, is it something only developers can access through their aircraft, or can a user...

    Have you looked into Apple’s Boot Camp? It would give better performance for gaming than Parallels, especially as few Macs really have the hardware for running at high settings.

    Yes, it does use Bing maps. However, not all places or airports are modelled to the same level. Some cities will be covered by photogrammetry, but many won’t. So even when using the steaming data,...
