“In this corner, weighing in at a heavy quad core and 4 GB of RAM to run, latest creation of ACES studios, we have Flight…. Simulator…. EEEEXXXXXX”
“In the opposing corner, able to run on most any modern machine, old-still functional-but not as pretty, we have A Century…. OF…. FLiiiiiiiiiiiight”
Alright alright… Thankfully this whole ordel is much more dramatic than that. In fact, I’ve seen fights over this issue that would probably be best resolved in the ring. A couple of flight simulator geeks dueling it out… How awesome would that be?!
Recently, PMDG has been discussing their decision to drop the FS9 version for any of their up and coming products. There are some pretty big things in the pipeline, including the 737, Dash-8, and 777 which a lot of people, including me, are excited about.

PMDG has some valid points here. Although it is rough for people with FS9 to accept, there is certainly a trend in the direction of a greater FSX usership. This isn’t to say that FS9 is bad. I think it just means FSX has greater potencial, and we are just starting to see that potencial.
Therefore, it’s bringing a lot of people over to FSX.
As Robert states,
“This is a business decision, not an emotional one.”
As for me, I switched to FSX about 2 years ago. With that said, it took a beefy machine to run it the way I wanted to. But, it also looks better than FS9. Sorry boys… It’s true.
