Unless you have or plan to get an XBOX Series X|S and want the cross play compatibility, save yourself a lot of potential grief and get it through Steam instead.
With Steam, you get a single app - Steam. It will install the sim WHERE YOU WANT, vs across multiple folders across your C: drive, with some of those files and folders being locked and inaccessible. I can’t stand anything software that restricts how I can manage my own drive space.
When purchased through the MS Store or XBOX, you have to run the MS Store, XBOX Live, and MS Gaming Services. They’re 3 separate apps that all need to be running and up to date in order to get the sim to run at all. If you follow any of the threads here in the last couple of months, you’ll see just how horrible an experience that has been for people that have had issues.
I wouldn’t touch that with a barge pole.
