It’s time to take to the skies via your Xbox Series X or S, because Microsoft Flight Simulator is out this week on the shiny next-gen Xbox.

I haven’t really played much Flight Sim since it came out on PC last year. I wanted to play it, but it was so big and my PC at the time sucked so I couldn’t. Then I just got distracted with the world and 20,000 other games. But now, I’m thinking it’s time to set aside a few days and go flying on my Xbox from the comfort of my couch. (I’ll probably just end up playing more GTA Online and Warframe because I’m terrible at sticking to plans.)

  • As someone who enjoys games like GTA:O and Warframe, why would you want to set aside a few *days* to play Flight Sim?

    It’s genuinely not even a game. There’s no way it’ll provide the level of stimulation and excitement that you (along with every other modern gamer) are accustomed to.

    Don’t get me wrong, it’s a neat thing to have, especially to bring out when guests are around, but I definitely don’t see it being super “bingeable”, unless you’re super into commercial aircrafts or geography.

  • Really interested to see how the consoles handle Flight Simulator. Easily my biggest piece of FOMO as a PS user.
