Ready for you to take my money

Recommended Posts

Just a curious question for the lot,

 

How much is TOO much money to spend on this fantastic aircraft? What amount would you have a hard time clicking purchase?

 

What would the add on have to be able to do for you to justify spending the amount you say is too much?

Hi,

 

Curiously, the word which comes to my mind regarding the value of that addon makes me thinkof an advertisement for a mean of payment:

 

FsX..................................$ xx

A computer to run it......$ xxxx

Hardware to fly...............$ xxx

Getting PMDG T7.........PRICELESS

For everything else there is ***...

 

Ok I'm not native english speaker so I'm not pretty sure of the way it could be read, but it just reflects my thought that I will buy it whatever the price is.

I am likely to buy it at virtually any remotely reasonably price. I would have paid pretty much anything for the PMDG 737NGX, and expect the 777 to be just as good. Problem for me is I'm not much of a long haul guy, hence the reason I go from "pretty much anything" on the NGX to "remotely reasonable" on the 777.

 

The real question of cost though comes in when you think about all the add-ons you won't touch again. My airliner flying is all in the PMDG JS41 and NGX (plus T7 when available). Even my beloved oldies like the MD-11, LDS 767 and Maddog sit in the hangar now.

 

My only branching out is for genre that aren't well covered by these three aircraft like warbird or modern military.

Anything over $120 is really pushing it, as amazing as this airplane is it only adds a little chunk to the simulator compared to something more vast and flexible like global scenery.

even a flop like airsimmer has really given me valuable learning curves...I didnt ask for refund, however in entertainment aspect, it is buggy as hell.. $70 is the limit

I have to say, the add ons which I would have paid more for and use all the time are:-

 

My pure Gold list:

PMDG 737 NGX

Opus

Ideal Flight 10

FS2Crew

Aivlasoft EFB

80$ is the limit for me. Anything above is just weird, in my opinion, because I already know I'm not going to use all the functions the 777 has. I could use 80$ to buy three airports...

I'm used to paying the 60-70 for a really good product. I'm seeing a few $80, and a few $100. I think I'd pay as much as they asked even to try it once. We all know it's going to be a stunner, so you know you won't just try it once. :lol:

 

Can't wait for the bird fellas!

The most I've spent on an airplane was the NGX (I think it was $65 or something??)

 

The most I'd spend would be $80-100 if the plane was superb...

I don't want to speculate how good PMDG 777 will be. It's still based on aging FSX that is not supported by MS anymore. With all limitations in mind I don't really know what to expect. Bought PMDG 747 few years ago and it has annoying bugs that are not yet fixed (and never will).

My max price for airplane is $100-120

Suspect will ended up paying more for -200LR and -300ER

Gents,

 

I would like to echo what Steve said (post#2) regarding the price for quality FSX software. Considering the amount of time devoted to the development of these complex simulation, I have to agree- these products are worth much more than we pay for them.

I think lately we've been seeing far inferior products coming from other developers that are not finished when they release it to us, so when we drop $60 on it, we are disappointed. I think when this new product from the PMDG team gets released we will remember what it's like to pay good money for a GREAT product.

STOP PEOPLE!!!! You are gonna give give the DEV's ideas!!! j/k :lol:

 

I think the cost of an add-on is dependant on the amount of sales they get, not but how much work is involved. There are games on iTunes that take developers a year or more to develop and sell for $2, but they sell millions of copies :blink:

 

I just spent over $60 on the CS777, and before even trying it I went and bought the CS737 and all its varients for another $60... what a mistake that was!!!!!!

Depends on who the developer is.....but specifically PMDG....there is no discernable limit. I'm not certain I can say that of any other add-on developer out there.

I've personally found PMDG to be a very fair organization. They charge appropriately for what their product does and represents.
