MS Flight Simulator on consoles: Finally, a next-gen game for Xbox Series X/S - Ars Technica
Jul 26, 2021 50 secs

When I think of the history of game consoles, I think of flight simulators.

I think about that strategy now because Microsoft Flight Simulator is launching on Xbox Series X/S this week.

Since it's roughly eight months out from those consoles' launches, it doesn't count as a "launch" game.

But Microsoft Flight Simulator is honestly the first true "next-gen" first-party console game in Xbox's latest era.

Part of that next-gen quality is because this game, unlike other first-party fare, has no "backwards compatibility" path to the older Xbox One family.

After a tremendous launch on PCs last year, MSFS has now emerged as a living room game with an emphasis on relaxed Pilotwings-like trips across the entire globe.

In good news, it sets a new bar for 3D rendering performance on consoles, and it stands head and shoulders above all other console games at this time.

MSFS 2020 combines Bing's world-mapping data, Azure's data-processing centers, and some fantastic rendering engine technology to open the entire Earth to unfettered flight.
