Microsoft Flight Simulator arrives on Xbox Cloud Gaming

As we continue to evolve the simulator and expand the ways with which both core simmers and newcomers to the franchise can experience Microsoft Flight Simulator, we are thrilled to announce that Microsoft Flight Simulator can now be streamed via Xbox Cloud Gaming.

Starting today, Microsoft Flight Simulator is available on Xbox One and on other supported devices thanks to Xbox Cloud Gaming, powered by custom Xbox Series X hardware. Players can enjoy the same awe-inspiring experience as on Xbox Series X|S.

Some of the great benefits of accessing Microsoft Flight Simulator via Xbox Cloud Gaming include:

  1. Microsoft Flight Simulator can now be played on Xbox One. Many players have been asking for just that. You can launch the simulator through the Xbox dashboard and quickly dive into a high-fidelity experience (up to 1080p and 30fps). You can now explore the planet from any of the supportive devices and quickly take off as there is no need to install the simulator on your hard drive.
  2. Microsoft Flight Simulator can also be played beyond the console on supported mobile phones, tablets and lower-spec PCs. Standard controller inputs from Bluetooth controllers such as Xbox Wireless Controller for cloud gaming are supported.
  3. The multiplayer experience for all simmers is identical as on the PC and Xbox Series X|S, allowing everyone to share the same airspace regardless of the device they are using.
  4. World Updates I-VI are streamed automatically to all players and all your previous purchases on Xbox Series X|S as well as the full Xbox marketplace are available.

We are excited for the flight sim community to experience Microsoft Flight Simulator on the Xbox Cloud Gaming platform starting today.

This is actually pretty neat.  I watched a guy at my old work play some sort of FPS on his mobile phone, mounted to an xbox controller.  I was totally shocked!  Cloud computing is interesting for sure....  and maybe it would be silly to play FS on a tablet/phone but perhaps you could just stream it from anywhere with a smaller screen and it would be enjoyable anyway.

Good luck to the developers. They need success in the market and resulting  revenue to keep this venture going.

If this plays anywhere as good on mobile, my prediction of the competing mobile game being deleted from my dual screen phone will become a reality.

Technology at its finest. However, since this is streamed, I would be curious to see how much lag would be

From experience with other games, not much over watching a video for down, and enough to send controller inputs for up

What video resolution though?

Now they have went too far... It's definitely a game. Am I right?

Just kiding, that's actually awesome, it's a good entry point.

X-Plane can be played on a mobile device (and I've dabbled with it), so not so odd, although whether there's a lot to be gained from playing such a graphically-advanced sim on a small screen is debatable.

Well, I just ran MSFS 2020 on my Iphone, and it ran flawlessly, and I was even able to use my PS4 controller. 

So it must be a game.

I subscribed for an X-Box Game Pass but it wanted my Microsoft account information. When it started on the Iphone, it told me MSFS was already running on another device. 

Would be a lot more fun if I could run them both at the same time.
