    Took a break from driving trains to fly some planes. Incredible game, especially for a console. Can’t believe the amount of detail that went into making this game.

    Series S. zero luck finding an X. Was quite excited for FS2020, and looking forward to the upgrades for TSW2.

    Flew to Niagara Falls this morning from Billy Bishop in Toronto. Told my kids I was checking on their favourite indoor water park.

    lousy pic, but you get the idea. Has an “active pause” so you can play with the camera settings, angles, and take awesome pictures. Incredible what Microsoft has accomplished.

    Agreed here, I've got over 1100 hours over 1000 levels on tsw, as soon as MSFS came out ( I'm on series S ) not touched tsw once, it runs amazing on it, I've done a few flights so far, most around the uk or to ireland

    Glad you guy are enjoying MSFS
    I'd enjoy it too if it didn't crash on my every flight I take
    Last flight I was 15 seconds from pulling into the gate and CRASH
    Playing on Series X

    An update went out about 2-3 days ago addressing that, though ice never actually had that happen to me

    I am happy as a console user that we have a great train simulator and now a great flight simulator. I’ve been enjoying flying a lot!

    Was looking into getting MSFS on my PC as I was into flight sims many years ago.
    I can no longer use my MS2004 game as my PC doesn't have a CD drive.

    Weird. Crashed once on me, and it was in the main screen. I crash on flights a lot, but that’s on me, lol.

    I don't personally have the game (Xbox One S here) but I really, really wish I did.

    It (along with TSW, and other games) are the main reasons I'm beginning to look into a Series X/S.

    Hopefully, but I must say from everything I've seen, it looks stunning.
