Do I buy P3d V3.4 or wait for V4 ? Please Help

Recommended Posts

Hi All, Does anyone know or have an idea when P3D v4 is likely to be out, as I am ready to purchase V3.4 but if V4 is imminent I will wait as long as it is not too long. The reason I am asking this is in the past I did purchase V2.5 and not long afterwards it went to V3 and I would have to pay the full purchase price again. I realise you may not have this info for sure but if you think it could be a while before the next version I will go ahead and get V3.4. Thanks for any info/advice in advance.

The problem is that no body knows when the V4 will be released. So wait for v4 could be 4 months, 1 year, etc... , and wait addons to work with this version (assuming that it will be 64bits) you will have to wait more time to have a perfect v4 working. 

 

So I thnik the best you can do is purchase V3. Its a good stable sim, and with tools like PTA looks amazing.

I recently purchased v3 and have no regrets.  Why wait to bask in its benefits?

Never change a running system as the saying goes so I'll stay with FSX for now. Hoping for V4 to be an x64 application and then we shall see...

Well, actually I was lucky enough to wait with FS2004 from 2003 through 2014, when I switched to P3D skipping this nightmare called FSX completely :-)

I ran FSX then FSX:SE for years, compared to P3d, FSX is doggy doo doo.

Once you try P3D, you will never go back to FSX.

Sure thing!. One thing to note however is that if someone is not actually using P3D, waiting for v4.0 - in case it is a 64bit application -  could be a good idea to help saving some money in add-ons.

That 64 bit P3D may or may not be in development, or may never come.

That's essentially true, but I've heard LM is alfa/beta testing it already, maybe rumor?, who knows?.

I will wait before jumping over to a 64 bit P3D till :

- AS / REX are compatible

- there are at least 10 European major addon airports released

- there will be a good addon mesh product

- there will be a good AI traffic product

- the load of the main thread will be spread over 2 cores

- Prosim will be compatible

 

And then I need the money to purchase it ...
