The feeling of soaring through the skies is one that most of us, you know, the sensible ones, haven't experienced in nearly a year now.

It's probably one of the reasons that so many people enjoyed Microsoft Flight Simulator when it launched last year.

It's also just a very impressive flight-sim, with some of the most impressive technology around.

While we know it's meant to be coming to the Xbox Series X and Series S, there's still been no word on the Xbox One… until now.

Microsoft Flight Simulator could still come to Xbox One

This comes from an interview with the head of Microsoft Flight Simulator, Jorg Newmann, done by Eurogamer, where Neumann said "Obviously memory matters. Certainly on Ultra settings, you need a big PC - well, that's a lot, lot more memory than what you had on an Xbox One. So it's a journey, like most things, you know - let's get the Xbox Series X and S versions done, and then we'll look ahead after that. We never close doors, and there are other options, though it's a little bit too early to talk about it."

As Eurogamer notes, this sort of sounds as though Neumann thinks xCloud could be the answer here.

What is xCloud?

xCloud is a service that lets you stream games to a plethora of places and allows you to play them without needing a powerful console to do so.

It also removes the need for downloads, which makes it perfect for those who have a console, but no memory left on that console to install new content.

It’s a pretty astonishing service, and it means you can stream any games you own to your phone if you want to, but also allows for the potential to continue using your PC or Xbox One to play versions of a game they wouldn't normally be able to.
