FSX Peripherals with Microsoft FS 2020

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know whether or not Microsoft Flight Simulator (2020) will be backwards-compatible with existing peripherals that were designed for Microsoft FSX? I have a large amount of Saitek peripherals (Cessna yoke/quadrant, Cessna rudder pedals, Cessna trim wheel, switch panel, radio panel, GPS panel). If I were to switch to FS2020 sometime in the future, would I have to buy all-new peripherals, or would my current ones work? Thanks in advance for the help.

I'd imagine that most peripherals will work, if not at initial release, then not long after.


Main PC: AMD Ryzen 3800X, GIGABYTE X570 Auros Ultra, 32GB DDR4 3200 MHz RAM, Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD, SAMSUNG QVO (1TB) SSD, 2 * 1 TB M.2 2280 Nvme SSD, Toshiba (4TB) HDD, WD (2TB) HDD, PALIT GTX 1070* 8 GB vRAM, CORSAIR H100i GTX Water cooler, SAITEK X55 JOYSTICK/THROTTLES, SAITEK YOKE, 2 * SAITEK throttles, SAITEK PEDALS

*new GPU planned (30xx or Big Navi) when I can get one but I may have to wait a short time (ie the more vRam the better or whatever I can afford) to see what's best for me.
