Should I purchase the Steam version or the MS Store Version ? Kindly advise with reasons.
Fellow players, I am planning to buy this game, and to make it clear I don't have an XBox any model nor so I intend to get an XBox any model, so should I get this Steam version of the game or the MSStore Version ? Kindly advise along with reasons.

You definitely don't need an XBox, I have none either. You may need an account, though.

Half of one, six dozen of the other. The STEAM version has a launcher that the MS version does not. Beyond that, everything is controlled through the Microsoft servers. Maybe the STEAM launcher is more stable?

Whichever route you go, you want to be careful what tier your purchase, as if you decide later you want a higher tier, upgrading is more expensive than simply buying that higher tier in the first place. Also, it helps to have a better computer rig than a worse one, plenty of hard drive space especially a SSD, and fast internet. Keyboard and mouse controls are frustrating, so game controllers/flight controllers are highly recommended. Even an XBOX controller will work on a PC, I have one.

I've had nothing but headaches with this title. If I'm not downloading updates it's just not working. I have the MS direct version and totally regret making this purchase. Maybe in 10 years when they have the bugs worked out, I've been telling all my friends to just skip this for now and avoid the headache.

if you get the steam version never ever verify the integrity of the files. It basically uninstalls the game.
