free payware + bargains 4 a limited time

A nice overview of some very generous companies... I am, however, missing some well known names.

To all companies having participated in some form or shape thus far, I say, " thank you "!

Keep safe & keep your distance!

True colours will shine....A2A are glistening like a diamond in the sun..as well as other developers.

must say though, you’d think the most expensive developers to ever exist, considering the support they get, would have given a little...

I browsed thru the your list of freebee websites you provided:  Except for one or two, could not find anything really free(?)  Thanks anyway...

It's easy to see the glaring failure to appear from at least two very significant, highly-successful (and makers of expensive addons) developers..... 

They're certainly not obligated to give away anything, nor are we entitled to anything, but their absence is VERY noticeable . . . 

The community is watching for sure.  🙂

PMDG has the NGXu 600/700 expansion marked down ten dollars if that counts.

Even at half price, PMDG products are way too expensive for me. Fortunately tubeliners are not my thing so can't be bothered. I was always very critical about A2A pricing as well, but their free P-40 made me re-evaluate.

A2A's pricing i thought was always in the sweet spot, incredible value...look at the quality of the planes they produce, and well, accusim is just amazing!

Then A2A gave away a $50 product, just like that..

Lets do the math's here: 

PMDG NGXu - $99

A2A P-40 $50

p-40 half the price of NGXu.

A2A gave away many, many copies

PMDG give nothing, but take $10 off of a EXPANSION to a base model that costs $99...so you'll still need to spend $125. That's what they are hoping you will do during this time of crisis....spend $125 to get a $10 discount...PA-LEASE! what a shamefull marketing tactic.

never mind there are 3.2 million american people out of work..in the country they reside in.....i'm sure they have $125 just laying around getting in the way.

Just pure and utter arrogance.

Different forums have different rules. Different companies have different ways of conducting business. We'd all like nice free stuff, and kudos to anyone who provides that, but it's up to the companies themselves. If public opinion is swayed against a company then it will get reflected in their customer base, alleged arrogance or not.
