A2A Thanksgiving Sale

Recommended Posts

That's what I was thinking, being that MFS is coming, some folks are holding on to their money, I am.

Yeah, I find a lot of these amateur flightsim developers' marketing strategies quite amusing.  Even with the upcoming release of MSFS, which will likely render their products obsolete, they still desperately hold out for top dollar and offer only paltry 25% discounts.

The smarter strategy would be to drop the price drastically, like 50% or more, to try and entice at least a few folks to buy your product.

Uhh... the sales are pretty much the same this time every year, and A2A is hardly an amateur developer.

Why should addon developers drastically cut prices when MSFS isn't due until probably late next year? That's silly. 

If people want to not spend money because of something that *might* come out 9-12-whatever months from now than that's their prerogative. Addon developers can't assume everyboduvis leaving and just start drastically cutting prices on everything. That....is amateur.

A2A doesn't need to entice anyone. They do the best GA on the market. I really hope your new favourite and best simulator ever done but not released yet could achieve the immersion of the A2A products.

This is exactly MS startegy. Make some promises, do some trailers and wait for people holding off their wallets.. 

 

Meanwhile, developers strugle to improve their income, cut on development and therefore a good sim becomes a dead sim. 

 

Then eventually when msfs is relased, if, they can ask what they want. Competition is gone

Far from being an 'amateur flightsim developer' A2A is one of the most professional developers out there producing excellent aircraft and providing superb support. Indeed the quality of their products is second to none and is so good that they do not need to offer a discount to entice sales!

This is a great opportunity for anyone who wishes to add some brilliant aircraft to FSX or P3D.

Given the climate around here these days, I wouldn't kid about something like that.

I'm not holding on to my money. Every time MSFS puts out a sim, I can't get decent fps for at least 5 yrs after anyway. I'm spending on what works for me now. Thanks A2A! Nice sale.
