Help with choosing simulators

Recommended Posts

I have been away from FSX for several months. I recently got a new computer and when I went 

to reinstall FSX2006 I found the disk had become corrupt.


My question is which tyspe of FSX should I purchase via EBay, Steam,Gold or should I give

x-plane a try.

FSX Steam is the way to go,  Updating\Installing\Reinstalling FSX is made so much easier using Steam  

FSX is on sale now as well

For FSX, the Steam version is the one you want now. It includes Acceleration, all the updates and some performance and bug fixes over the original version. And the multiplayer is fixed so it works with the Steam network. If you buy the original or Gold edition, multiplayer won't work.


Don't dismiss X-Plane 10 though. Theres some really good stuff going on over there too at the moment. If your budget allows I would recommend running both side by side.

Go X-Plane. Don't get stuck holding onto dead programs like FSX & FSX-SE

You might want to consider Prepar3d from Lockheed Martin also.
