    Honestly I'm a little surprised they didn't include support from the first day. Seems like an obvious feature to me.

    Nothing to do with being useful or obvious. This is to keep people on XBox subscription. Same reason Disney don't dump three seasons of The Mandelorian on Disney+ on day one ;)

    They had better have much improved multi core support or it will be an even worse slide show, and that wont sit well with VR.
    So I think it will have much better multi threading, about time.

    Although frame doubling might work well because lag doesnt matter much with FS2020.
    But I'm not sure how many VR sets will have this.
