Give it a couple of months, the FSX version shouldn't be far behind, and then there is still PMDG's 737NGX coming!!

I know I know. But I've been waiting for a quality 737 for so long, PMDG is taking it's time, and the Ariane had too many downsides.

I receive a feed from the iFly forum at Flight1 and it looks like there are a bunch of problems...RV

Well of course there are... You cannot expect such a complex simulation to be fully bug free. Heck, if entire OS's come with a "bunch of problems", for sure that these software titlkes do. For as far as I have seen, none are very big and will be cixed in due course. Overall, this has been a very succesful product launch!

Not to mention they will also be adding in the 700ER/900ER models.

Looks like I'll be one of them going back to FS9 just for the plane :(. Too bad there's only 2GBs left in my disk! If only I had the skills to convert those gauges into an XML format so that they work with FSX....I would have been in Flight1 by then...:biggrin:Since there's no sign of any new 737NGs then I'll have to settle with the POSKY ones..Dave.

Hopefully with the bugs fixed from the FS9 version. I will certainly buy

So far the team seems to be very responsible and responsive regarding bug fixes. On top of that I personally think what shows this team's true ambition is all the improvements they are reportedly taking on. This should put a lot of pressure on PMDG. They've already handed out the FS9 737 market in its entirety to iFly (unless I'm wrong about the pmdg NG being FSX only) and now it looks like iFly will be the first to cash in on the hungry FSX crowd.

I was very seriously considering the ifly for FSX,.... until hearing that it will be priced at $70. I'll wait and see how the PMDG NGX is priced before making a decision. To me, the ifly was much more appealing at the $55 mark.

For another $15, the FSX version can be had by current FS9 version customers. (just translating what iFly team said in their chinese forum)

Oh, that's a bit different. You wouldn't happen to know what the FSX version will cost for people who haven't already bought the fs9 version would you?

Chances are very very good the pmdg 737ngx will be north of 70 dollars. I am betting between 80 to 99 dollars.

iFly 737 NG for FSX is to be released around Oct. 1st. Price will be $15 more than the FS9 version.
There may be a misunderstanding. Regarding price, the $14.95 mentioned was if you wanted to upgrade from the FS9 version to the FSX version (you would have both versions).

Well David I once found a certain LDS 767 which was and still is amazing because it's so close to real life and at that time I was just a fellow simmer.Amazing but after all those years you only experience a few of those aircraft.Well this 737 is one of those just a amazing bird and when the small bugs are fixed we have a real piece of art andit will shake the FS world in a positive way I'm sure because it's that good :-)

It's too bad they didn't sink their teeth into something else that another company hasn't really done yet. A 777 or 757 series would have been great. Or an Airbus... With PMDG coming out hopefully in a few months it just seems like a waste for 2 high quality 737's to be on the market when there are so many aircraft that don't have a good full systems release.

No way, there is no a/c that would make me go back to FS9.I'm just going to hold for the PMDG version, which hopefully will be out sometime this year. There's no way I will spend the $55 or whatever it is for the iFly, then spend another $80 or more when the NGX comes out. Plus since the PMDG guys already have a version of the iFly to pick apart, I'm sure they will make sure their version is even better than the iFly version, or at least I would imagine it will be even if iFly hadn't hit the market first.

Ahhh the famous Level-D 757. I've heard it is eventually coming out, I hope it does and I will certainly buy and probably get perfection. But I hope you guys don't forget about us freighter fans like the 767 either.

I was going to spend over 100 on the Ariane just to fly an NG, so I will gladly buy both. I know PMDG will be perfection after a patch or 2 so it will be a good year hopefully.

David, are you going to get the FS9 version only or wait for the FSX version, or pay the small upgrade fee and get both versions, then buy the PMDG version on top of that?Bet your glad you didn't spend the money on the Ariane version at this point.
