    according to everything i'm reading , if any time those companies come out with new addons for FS2020 it will be only compatible with PC version right ?
    All aircraft and scenery designed for MSFS will work on PC or Xbox. The default aircraft for MSFS are more like the Carenado payware aircraft for FSX/P3D, including the autopilots and satnavs. The standard is WAY higher than in previous sims.

    I sincerely dont know what to do, i used to hate flying deafult FSX aircraft once i had wilcos, PMDG's, leveld and ariane products running

    then again, i dont know how complexe default FS2020 aircraft are maid, are they as complexe as what i mentioned above ?
    i am a real fan of full fonction aircrafts.
    No, what that means is that all add-on aircraft on the Xbox can only be installed through the built-in Marketplace, not third party websites or other sources. As Tim mentions, aircraft in the Marketplace will be compatible with both the PC and Xbox versions.

    The default aircraft in MSFS are more complex than FSX, though still not to the same level as those from some third party developers. PMDG and others are working on aircraft for MSFS. However the SDK is still under development, slowing them down right now.

    As far we know so far, though Marketplace already features Free files. One of the Xbox default apps is Edge browser, and it's been possible to download and extract .zip files since the Xbox One.

    Yes, for some cases it is possible. They seem pretty clear on it not being used for MSFS though.

    PS, linking a video showing pirating games probably isn't the best example.

    When it comes to computers and software, waiting for the actual release, and third party reviews, is often the best route to make the best decision and avoid disappointment.

    No worries. It looked innocent enough at the start.
