Simple awnser: No. Should be less. 

 

But there is nothing to do about it. 

And it is awsome and a must have.

 

So just pay the $90 and get on flying.

If you are going to be real busy with work and life again...then no.

 

The 777 (just like the 737 and other PMDG products) require a lot of reading if you want to fly it as it is supposed to be flown.

 

If you just want to jump in, add full power and fly like a madmann....that is possible as well of course but then you dont need a PMDG.

The included manuals alone are worth a multitude of the price they're asking for the entire addon. That is, if you want to get them legally.

Is it worth it? Sure it is.

Is it expensive? Depends on your specific situation.

The umpteenth addon for a seven year old buggy and unfinished sim is always kind of expensive ( :P) ... having said that, it's one of the best aircraft releases for FSX this year!

Hej

 

I would say anything from PMDG is worth $90 but do you like the 200LR and F  versions enough to folk out the sum of money?

 

There are bugs in from product but they have not stopped me from flying and they are seemingly minor and PMDG will have them fixed soon enough.

 

I would say it is worth $90 but maybe you need to ask yourself do you have the time to fly this product? She is highly addictive!

Definitely Yes.... fantastic product!

 

I don't get as much time as I would like on the 777, but with the acceleration feature you can successfully condense long haul flights into acceptable time frames.

 

As with the NGX this simulation is head and shoulders above anything else available!

Worth it or not never crossed my mind, it's an active piece and at the same time a museum collectable to me.

 

If I think about 90 bux being the cost, I still feel it's quite expensive, but really I can't find myself using money to gauge the quality of the product and the developers dedication to this piece.

 

I pay the $90, maybe $30 for the key, $10 for customer support, and $50 for my support of the work they put in.

Is it worth the money? Yes

 

Is it worth your time? Only you can answer that. This aircraft is very time consuming to fly it correctly for the money invested.

 

I almost regret getting it, not because of any lack of quality, but because of the lack of quality time that I have not been able to invest that this aircraft demands.

Beautiful? Yes.

Worth the price (of locking me into an outdated platform that has reached the end of its life wiith numerous OOM instances)? Resounding NO ! Vote with your almighty dollar to PULL pmdg into the future.

only issue is she won't work in the upcomming p3d V2

 

 

There's never been a PMDG EULA allowing the use of a PMDG plane in P3D.

 

(I guess someone by the name of Robert S. Randazzo mentioned that before.)

What I do to justify cost is to divide the $90 by the number of flights I'll do in it.

Therefore,it ends up quite cheap in the end.

True but the NGX would work in P3d but PMDG added somthing in the code of the 777 to disable the plane from working in p3d. I'm sure somone will eventulay get it working in p3d or better yet pmdg realises has most of the commuinty has that p3d is the future and allow use of their planes in it almost every other dev.has.

As sad as it makes me, no P3D support is no sale for me.

Still hoping PMDG will change their mind. I will buy the Professional license ($199.99) of P3D 2.0 which allows me use for simulation (which is what we do, don't we?). I'm more than willing to pay even more than $90 for a PMDG 777 which works with P3D 2.0 Professional License.

Its a nice plane but even $90 is pretty steep but I paid it seeing as I own it already why would spend more money by buying the same plane again? If PMDG did somthing like that it would just be greedy which isn't like them.

get the da___ plane, its an fsx masterpiece.  Sure you will have some problems, but read the manuals, its essential!!!  Remember this is PMDG, not just another developers.  This is the Mercedes Benz, of developers.  You get what you pay for!!!!!

I guess this is the end of the road (FSX) for many of us. :(

I'm not spending three figures on a single plane no matter what. That would be the breaking point for me even though I love the products.
