The Ascent and Flight Simulator! Can not wait! I am thinking about buying a flight stick!

Can not wait for the Ascent and flight sim!

Not going to lie, The ascent looks pretty awesome! Hopefully this is timed exclusive so I can eventually get to play it on my PS4 / 5.

Me too, still undecided on which flight stick to get though. Will have to compare features/reviews etc

I have recently bought a brand new wireless kb/m for Series X to get me started before i venture into the flight stick immersion :p

I play flight sim on PC currently but can't wait to try it on the Series X. I don't have the most top end PC so I'm curious to see the performance differences. I feel the X version will be superior in my current situation. Wondering if my flight controlers will work (HOTAS).

Ascent looks good too. Initially I wasn't that into it, but the more I see the more I want to play it. I even have it and flight sim pre-installed already via Game Pass.

I feel the same way about fight simulator. You need a serious rig to get the max out of it. I think it will be a great benchmark of how hard they can push the series x's hardware.

Flight simulator is a CPU intensive game and the GPU is the better part of the X compared to the cpu . I thought you Xbox guys would know more about this . It’s already stated 30fps. This is not the game tech wise (not really a game to begin with ) you want to make the X look good really. For the Xbox in particular you would want something programmed to use as many of the cores as possible as that is it selling point . The problem with that many cores is it’s a lot of work and most games especially multiplat won’t bother , time/$ vs benefit thing . Maybe the first party games will do it eventually but I’d guess they won’t either for a long time (if ever) especially since the S exists . It will make development that much harder for 2 skus and I doubt they want to make two separate games . It’s not as easy as use this number of cores then set the next higher number to get full use out of each core

@jznrpg Are you done flaming out with your response. That was brutal to read.

DJStotty710d ago

Looks like you may be in luck with the HOTAS :-


Is the flight stick any good? and at what price point are we looking at for it?

Looking forward to The Ascent especially since D&D was a dud...

I don't know why people thought D&D was going to be anymore then a dud. LOL.


It seemed like it was going to be a good game and I'm into those types of games. Unfortunately it was completely trash...

I like RPGs as well. But I am cautious with games now-a-days. Cyberpunk and CoD Black Ops were the last straws for me being burned. Now, I wait for the lab rats to give it the thumbs up.

I would've jumped on it, had reviews come out decent. Now, being on GamePass isn't even good enough for me to try it! LOL.
