PMDG 747 V2 Price

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I was wondering if the PMDG 747 V2.0 will have a reduced price for those who have bought the PMDG 747V1

 

Thanks

99.9999999999999999999999%: No.

 

To be honest, I don't see why there should be a discount, it's a newly built add-on after all.

'ey up, 'umberside,   :lol:

 

I certainly don't know for sure, but I'd doubt very much there will be a discount because it's a "ground up" development - they haven't used any components of the original V1 version.   Also 8+ years have passed since the original was released.

 

Certainly when they released the NGX, there was no discount for 737NG owners (albeit that was a FS9 only product).      And I certainly wouldn't have expected, or felt entitled to one.

I am sorry but I disagree, the fsx version was a porting from fs9, nothing to do with a new build expressly made for fsx.

Read my post again. I was (implicitly) talking about V2 being a newly built add-on. In any case, whether or not V1 was a newly built add-on doesn't matter at all in this discussion.

t doesn't matter how  or why v2 was developed.

 

It's a new product and PMDG will price it according the what  market will bear.

No discount, should be the same as with the NGX for customers of the 737 series for fs2002/fs2004.

I reluctantly bought the 777LRF at $89.99 and have over 2000 hours in it so far. Guess I like it. Patiently waiting to get back in 747 and specially 747-8i. We have been spoiled by the fidelity that PMDG are able to present to us given the limitaions of FSX.

No, it's an entirely new product.

It could be as much as the 777 for all I care. I justify the cost by dividing the number of hours spent, simulating on my computern into the original cost. Whatever it is, it's great and inexpensive entertainment. The more you use it, the cheaper it becomes.

Maybe a tad too early to talk about pricing at his point in time.

 

However, considering the planned scope of the 747v2 base product, a discount seems unlikely.

Gents-

 

There will be no special pricing on the PMDG 747-400v2.0.

 

It will appear in the shopping cart shortly at $350,000,000 per copy, just as the 777 did...  And then we will politely smile and nod when folks email us to ask if that will really be the price.

 

(Truth-be-told, we are just testing the market at that price.  If we could sell just ONE of them at that price point, we would give all other products away at no cost.  :rolleyes: )

Good news! I added the 777 for P3D to my cart and apparently PayPal will give me 6 months to pay on all purchases over $99. All $350m at one time was a bit much but ~$60m/month... now I can do that.

Robert,

 

If I buy it at that price, can I have it now then or do I have to wait until official release date which I expect is going to be "soon" :ph34r: :LMAO:

 

Kind regards

Once we have confirmed receipt of payment, we will pick you up in PMDG's (new-to-us) 744 and fly you to our (also new-to-us) corporate development resort in a nice, tropical beach location and you can hang out with us and relax while we finish development... 

 

Just let me know when the money is sent, and what you'd like for your meal inflight.  We'll get right on it!

Indeed... 

 

RE the price, I would hazard a guess that it will be in the 79-99 range. Similar to 777. Just a guess though.

      Some folks are just way too 'innocent' . They shoot themselves in the foot before they need to- in fact there's no need to. Yes, business is business; however, when you come out publicly and say things like : " Ohhhhh, no , there will be no discount" "Uhh, I'll be happy to pay as much as needed."  What these things do is simply give the business owner an idea of what could be "acceptable" for many, and if there's enough of the same, then the business goes with it cause they feel, most people will agree.

 

Look at what Aerosoft what did  their Airbus? It's an outstanding product-  at a reasonable price. And on top, they have included other products at no charge... Should I go back to Mathis and say: "Hey Mathis, you need to charge more for this; it's not worth $50.00. This should easily be $130.00"    Then, I would be just too "innocent"

 

      There is no doubt PMDG is one of the top 4 sim developers in our sim world, and many will say that they will pay any price for it. However, there are others who don't think that way... This brings us to diversity. When waiting for a product- anything (car, house, food, clothes, FSX sim a/c etc.etc), the best thing we can do is listen, watch, and wait. Don't shoot yourselves in the foot... No need to. I am  sure if the developer is wise (which I have no doubt PMDG is), he will charge a reasonable price for his product.   That's it!  Wait !

There you go!. If the customer wants it, and is willing to pay 'anything' for it... then give it to him. (or sell it to him) He'll be happy.

 

At that price, you'd have enough to bring along all Avsim members for a swim in the beach. And, if you decide you want to save a bit, let the older guys we go on your private jet, and the younger guys go on a UPS  777. :lol:

Ricky,

 

I see your point, but you must also remember that a lot of what goes on around the forums are harmless banter and is all good fun, so don't take everything too seriously either, that is the same as being too innocent  :wink: .

 

Don't worry about the price - PMDG knows what to do to cover their development costs and their prices are pretty much set in any event.   Don't stress about it too much.   There are always some who can pay exorbitant amounts and others who cannot afford to, but PMDG knows this too and will make it affordable for the widest possible audience.   That is also good business sense!

 

Kind regards
