I was just looking through the www.amazon.co.uk site and noticed that they are offering quite a good discount on FSX if you are interested.

FSX Deluxe is going on sale at £49.99 reduced from £59.99

FSX is going on sale at £39.99 reduced from £49.99

They claim the release date for FSX is the 13th October by the way...

UPDATE

 www.amazon.com have a similar offer.

FSX Deluxe is going on sale at $64.99 reduced from $69.99

FSX is going on sale at  $44.99 reduced from $49.99

They claim the release date is 6th of October Confused so your guess is as good as mine which date is correct or are MS doing it again releasing it in the US before anywhere else...

By the way the full price comparison is as follows between the USA price and the UK price is as follows.

FSX Deluxe USA price is $69.99 which is about £37.15, a big difference from £59.99  (61% more expensive in the UK)

FSX USA $44.99 price is which is about £23.88, a big difference from £49.99 (a whopping 103% more expensive in the UK)

The deluxe has all the goodies like the ATC function where you can act as controller, and I think some extra aircraft....

Would it be ok to buy the delux version from amazon.com even though I live in the UK?? Even with the postage charge should still be cheaper. If I recall correctly there's no different formats (pal, ntsc etc) on pc games is there?

EDIT: Just checked and found out amazon.com will only ship to the US for that item at the moment! If I could find another online store that would ship to the UK, do you think it'd be ok to run on a UK pc?

Jesse,

From FSX website http://www.microsoft.com/games/flightsimulatorx/default.htm,

Standard Edition

  • 2 DVD
  • 18 airplanes
  • 40 high-detail airports (16 new to Flight Simulator)
  • 28 high-detail cities
  • 30+ structured missions

Deluxe Edition

  • 2 DVD
  • 24 airplanes
  • 45 high-detail airports (21 new to Flight Simulator)
  • 38 high-detail cities
  • 50+ structured missions
  • Glass panel (G1000) cockpit
  • Tower controller

The Deluxe is supposed to have the SDK's included with it.  Not sure if they will be available as seperate downloads or not (with the price difference, probably not).

As for the release date, AVSIM says "Directly from the Microsoft Offices, the official shelf date is October 17, 2006 for FSX. Microsoft writes, "The newest addition to the 25-year “Flight Simulator” franchise will fly to retailers on Oct. 17".  Product has been sent to retailers and the official shelf date is set at October 17th."

I'm putting my 'virtual money' on the 17th.  Not because AVSIM announced it but because it is a Tuesday*.  Here in the US, the majority of games, movies or music CD's are released on Tuesday (I don't know whyConfused).

*  Disclaimer:  I may be wrong, I've been wrong before.Big%20smile

This time it is very possible that FSX will be released in Europe before the US...

13th for EU

17th for US
