Is it worth $90?

Recommended Posts

I'm sure that the 777 is a great product, But $90 is a lot of money...

$50 maybe...Anyone else feel the same way?

The competition is 66$. They aren't even in the same category. This is money WELL spent.

The new 172 is $50. This is a much more complicated aircraft, so following that logic the 777 is underpriced and the Ngx is VERY underpriced.

Yes, it's a lot, and if the current pace of pricing keeps up, I probably won't get what's coming next

I bought it because I think I can get $90 worth of enjoyment out of it

 

 

I spend more than this whenever the wife & I go to the ballgame

Guys-

you need to keep it in perspective.

 

I plan on hundreds,if not thousands of hours in this airplane... Divide that by $90, its a bargain.

Hi Mark,

 

I have tried it only few hours and I can say, its worth every single penny.

 

Cheers

I don't have the a2a Cessna yet, but I'd imagine the micromanaging of the engine start, mixture, and overall health is a bit more complicated than the 777. Yes you have the fmc but meh. I'm more intimidated by the a2a Cessna :). The a2a p51 is harder to fly than the 777. And imo the 737ngx is more complicated than the 777. There's much more automation in the 777. It's easier to setup and manage. It was designed that way with input from pilots and airlines. Yes it's worth the minimal increase over the ngx. These are licensed products from Boeing. There is company data in these simulations. That adds to the cost. Pmdg didn't get it for free....

The PMDG 777 is not worth 90 bucks.. Its worth 180.. I will spend years inside this simulation.. YEARS.. Worth every penny.. Awesome JOB PMDG.. Just wish I could fly her some, spending most of my time reading all the information that came with her.. I did get a short flight in though.. I'm blown away !!!

Compare it to other forms of entertainment. $10/2 hour movie. 30/bluray. 60/game you may only play 10 hours. 100 for a day at an mlb ballpark(even more for yankees!) imo worth more than 90

It's all relative. It depends on how much you're going to fly it. I bought it, and I'll use it, but the NGX is really more my style. I'm not really into 15 hour flights.

All this automation is where the the complexity is. It is not so much what ypu can see what is so amazing but it is what you cannot see that makes this simulation what it is, a fully simulated 777, 90 bucks is exaxtly what I bargained for and yes, worth every penny!

 

Kind regards.

Hrm, well good question.  I like this Aircraft but I think the NGX was a better product and is more fun to fly (puts flame suit on).  I'm just not getting the WOW this is awesome feeling.  I might need to fly on a 777 in real life to get that feeling....I've flown on 738s a lot.

 

TL:DR If you want a NGX quality long hauler get it for sure.

FSX cost way more money to make and i payed $29.99 3yrs ago...

 

Its like buying a car for $29,000.00 and spending $90,000.00 on twin turbo.....where is the logic here.

 

With $90,000.00 you could buy a nice AMG.

 

Even a new simulator won't cost that much.

 

I'm saving my money for the real one $296,000,000.00  

 

 

Edit: ill buy it only if is DX10 compatible.

$90 is more than fair. For this level of detail, you should expect to pay a premium.

The only time i pay premium is at the gas pump :lol:

Who said you have to fly 15 hour flights?

Although the plane is wonderful, I would have expected to at least be able to print the documentation provided with it. I guess they want me to buy their $300 manual set. That's just silly.

No, $89 is a great deal for what you get.
