Do you have a single graph to back that up? :P

For a company that needs to regain the trust of its fans, after all the controversy that followed the release of Cliffs of Dover, the price for the standard edition seems a bit steep to me. Especially considering that we'll have to pay for future planes. While the price for the premium edition is just ridiculous.

The Oculus Rift is just the latest iteration in a long line of failures from a tech that's been a dead end for 30 years. Five years from now, you'll say "Oculus Rift" to someone and they'll either look at you blankly or laugh. I'm much more interested in learning whether they'll support Eyefinity/Surround, both proven immersion technologies.

Both Rise of Flight and Cliffs of Dover support multiple monitor rendering quite well, it is very unlikely that BoS is gonna be an exception. I mean they would be fools not to support that, triple screen setups might be a "niche" market for gaming in general but when it comes down to sims it is pretty much the standard...

I think it's all a matter of perspective.

The price for the standard edition seems perfectly reasonable to me. I could even make an argument that it's a little too cheap given the examples of console games and single aircraft addons to the DCS series, both of which are more expensive than the standard edition of BoS. It's not easy to see how they could break even, let alone turn a profit, if they sold the standard edition at a lower price point.

I can see the argument that the premium edition is a little steep, but it really just exists for those that really want to support the project. The standard edition should be more than fine for most players.

I pre-ordered the premium edition with the following logic in mind:

  • $90 isn't really much money to me.
  • I really want to support what's left of the flight sim industry... but only where I feel it has merit.
  • I've been really impressed by Rise of Flight over the years, even though I'm not much of a WWI fan.
  • The level of community interaction and communication coming from Loft via the Developer Diaries is hugely impressive.
  • I've been very impressed with Loft's openness about what they can and cannot achieve (even when he knows they'll get slammed for it).
  • Everything that I've read in the developer diaries tells me that the team is being very realistic about what they can accomplish.


With all of that in mind, I don't see $90 as a major risk. It's a leap of faith, for sure, but a measured one that's informed by optimism and hope for the foundations of a great new flight sim.

Yeah I get what you mean, that's why I said it seems steep to me. It always is just a matter of perspective.

I am still gonna pre-order it of course, but compared to the gazillion other alpha/beta/kickstarter games I am supporting at the moment, is one of the most expensive.

I know nobody is forcing me to pledge money into these projects but I'd still like to show my support and if there was a slightly cheaper option for BoS my wallet would appreciate it!

BTW does anybody know if the devs said how much future DLC planes are gonna cost?
