who is still buying stuff for 2020, since 2024 is coming out

Recommended Posts

The news about 2024 hasn't and won't change my buying habits. If something interesting will be released I will buy it and enjoy it. I live NOW and not in the future. No one knows what the future will bring but I do know what I can do today. Besides, I do think that MSFS 2024 will not be a completely new sim but more or less a paid update (even if it needs a seperate install) so I've got no real worries. But even then... if MSFS 2024 would turn out to be a COMPLETELY new sim which would require me to buy ALL my beloved addons again I wouldn't change my buying habits for the reason mentioned above.

I just bought the ATR 72, and will buy any Airbus / Boeing / Embraer worth the buy airliner.

I am also still trying to decide what ATC program to invest in.

Gliders of quality are yet another strong option.

The helicopters so far didn't impress me 😕

I'm continuing on as normal, if something takes my fancy I'll buy it, I tend to live for today and not worry (too much) about tomorrow.

Bought the new Orbx/Marcus Nyberg ESSA yesterday.
Will buy the AS/Jo Sund ENGM (whenever it's ready).
Will buy Flightbeam's KSFO (whenever it's ready).
Will buy the JustFlight RJ85/RJ100 (whenever it's ready).
Will buy FlyTampa's EHAM and OMDB (if they're ever finished).
Will buy the upcoming Orbx YMML (if it reviews well).
May be interested in purchasing the PMDG 777 (if it reviews well).

Why would I deprive myself of enjoying these add-ons, bearing in mind we don't know when MSFS2024 will arrive?

2024 will be so close to our current 2020 that i guess most of the updates will be on both versions parallel (e.g. ATC). I dont stop buying, will enjoy the stuff now and later in 2024.

I rarely buy addons  for MSFS 2020 anyway, so not really a concern of mine.

I will continue to buy, but a lot more selectively. Previously my purchases sat unused for months before first use as I naively thought MSFS 2020 would be around for many years to come. MS2024 will definitely reduce my spend but not stop it entirely.

Made no difference to me. I'll keep buying, they've made their statement, it's good enough for me.

Same here.

Ok, if a dev were to offer rescue missions and such, I wouldn’t buy that. Or Bilbao airport.
