Who is holding out to purchase the PMDG 737-800 ?

Recommended Posts

With al the new releases as far as passenger jets such as, fly the maddog, PMDEG 737-700, the Fenix, BAE 146, who is holding out to buy the PMDG 737-800 ?  Personally I bought the MD-80, fly the Maddog, and definitely waiting to buy the PMDG 737-800.  As far as airbus eventually I will buy it, seems like that market is really getting flooded, lots of different developers.

During FSX days I bought just about everything that came out from PMDG, 737-600,700,800 and 900.  I also bought their 747, and 777.  Everything was fantastic!!

Because of ,my financial budget, I did not buy the 700 version., but will buy the 800 version.

Not I, but who knows. I might run out of money before they release the 800. 😇

I bought the 700 and don't really intend on buying the 800. For my use I won't notice a single difference between them so for me there was no real need to wait.

Me too, in FSX I went on the whole journey. The 800 was all I ended up using regularly so I am waiting for that but to be honest I'm loving the FBW320  a lot still. 

 

Nowadays (with family, kids etc) there's no time available to justify buying 5 payware jets. Back in the FSX era it was just me and the sim !

Just get the -700!  They're not that different and it's a super nice aircraft to fly, and very easy on performance too.

Got the Fenix A320 instead of the 737-700. I'm waiting for the 800 to get the PMDG.

Meh, popularity is overrated. Lots of liveries for the 700 so really shouldn't be a thing, but everyone assigns their own importance to things. This is a flexible hobby!

Waiting to see if PMDG fulfills their early access checklist of things to do in the next few weeks/months and I'll decide on pulling the trigger after that.

I'll get it. The 800 is the most popular variant, but I love the stubbiness of the 700. So I'll end up having those tow, but probably no others. The next jet I get from PMDG afetr the 800 would be the 777...

I got the Fenix A 320. I had a PMDG 737 in P3D, and I would not buy that again for  MSFS. I really like the Fenix , and that is now my go to Airliner from now on.

Don't see why not, besides being the more popular variant. As an expansion, should be easy on the wallet too.

Call me crazy, but I'm actually holding out for the PMDG 757-200. Man I can already hear those RB211's!

Take-offs are optional, landings are mandatory.
The only time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.
To make a small fortune in aviation you must start with a large fortune.

There's nothing less important than the runway behind you and the altitude above you.
It's better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air, than in the air wishing you were on the ground.
