The UI is still a little clunky, but the upgraded visuals are a world away from VBS2.

I'm guessing this is why they went future-ish on the hardware side for ARMA 3? I know VBS isn't really aimed at consumers but a lot do buy it.

Looks great. What's the current price on VBS anyway?

Lol, if you thought Elite Dangerous was expensive....

I have about $500 but there is one at around $3,000 too?

Maybe we're lucky and we get a CH-53K as part of the Helicopter DLC. But most likely we'll be getting another "Chimera". darkcloud

Great shots, just downloaded and installed VBS3 myself, getting ready to boot it up... VBS1 and 2 may have been a big waste of money for me now that I look back, but no regrets, had some great MP games with VBS1, and met a lot of great new online friends, gaming partners with the VBS series, especially their great PR guy back then, Gordon/Gordo/Gordo-viper... I was surprised to get the e-mail yesterday from BI inviting all previous VBS2 owners to upgrade for FREE to VBS3.

I said... "for free", sure I can do that. wink

BTW, don't think they are planning to sell VBS3 to users, from what I read...but could be wrong, still not worth it thou. IMO

I know Gordon. Use to play A2 and A3 with him all the time. As for VBS, it's still too clunky for game purposes IMHO.

You're also correct about the sales position. BIS is no longer selling VBS PE.

Nice shots thanks for sharing. How does VBS perform compared to OFP/ARMA series as far as hardware?
