MSFS Add-Ons & Releases (2022)

Sold!

Yeah, a $35 PMDG FLUFF is awfully hard to ignore. I’m sure that the 700 is amazing and more apropos. But probably going to jump on the 600.

Why is it half price to the -700, any thoughts?

Well, there is no freighter version and it is a variant that isn’t in widespread use, so the market is probably smaller. I’m guessing the -800 will be the biggest seller by quite a margin.

True, and also not have the BBJ version with champagne…

Maybe the 600 will be sort of a gateway drug to the 7 and 8. It will probably grab some folks who aren’t normally into airliners. I think that it’s a smart move.

Absolutely. At that price point they will open up the product to a much larger customer base.

I’m still going to stick with the 700 though ;).

Admittedly after the -800 comes out I’ll probably definitely pick that up and the -700 will likely retire for me. I could see myself getting the MAX but hopefully not dumping anymore cash down the PMDG 737 drain after that.

Their pricing model and release schedule for the 737 MSFS series is quite brilliant, in my opinion.

Sell the -700 first with the BBJ, cargo, and passenger models at full price to soak up those that like the -700 and, more importantly, those that will buy the 737-whatever just to get one in-game.

Next, release what is likely the least popular variant, the -600, as a passenger-only aircraft at a deeply discounted price as a gateway drug for those on the fence about high-fidelity aircraft or wary of the pricing.

Finally, release the most popular variant, the -800, at full price. I suspect the majority of their customers will wind up being owners of the -700 and -800, with a smaller amount either owning just the -600 or all three.
