I thought this is a pc game? XBox game pass is a subscription service with games that can run on PC & Xbox I believe.

Interestingly, looks like MS is moving towards cloud gaming subscription services and reducing reliant on actual hardware like the XBox One X which they just announced will be discontinued.

they been doing that for the last 2 years. enjoyed so many games on PC through the game pass service. this and origin access are one of the better game pass services to get in SG.

JPR analyzed the three levels of Economically Active PC gamers and simulation fans: Entry-Level, Mid-Range, and High-End. Economically Active PC gamers are a subset of the global PC gaming populace who rebuild, buy, and upgrade components and accessories with a higher frequency or “refresh rate.” The amount they spend differs and the probability they are flight sim fans differs by level. The higher the level, the more sim fans there are as a percentage, and the more they spend.

Based on the assumption of a sale of 2.27 million units of Flight Simulator 2020 selling over the next three years, JPR estimates that in that time frame $2.6 billion will be spent on hardware with the specific intent of improving the game's experience. Much more will be spent over the title's complete sales cycle.

I've always seen MSFS as the best FS yet. Over 10 years back I played MSFS Gold Edition and was already blown away by the features.

Unfortunately I've moved to Mac 10 years ago so will be missing this, also not planning to boot camp. So for now it's Infinite Flight and so far also the best FS for iOS/iPadOS with global terrain, minus the buildings.
