And no modules aren't 100 bucks, rather ~70 or so, but for anyone that owns 3-4 of them that could be a real investment for them. Remember most AAA title games only cost 70 bucks for the whole game, not a DLC/module. So while, plunking down 70 bucks for you and me may not be a big deal, I think its pretty arrogant to discount the opinion of folks for which thats not necessarily the case. I remember being young and not well off and having to make real choices on how to best spend 70 bucks.
Its relatively OK. If you look at the bigger picture, that in order to play DCS you need a high-end gaming PC, decent HOTAS, a headtracking device, plus a few modules its OK for a hobby that can offer thousands of hours of unlimited gameplay PLUS it continually adds more content and improvements.

My brother in law has one of the most expensive hobbies - hunting. A decent hunting rifle can cost up to 12,000+ euros, plus licences, maintenance equipment, ammo, hunting dog, etc, etc... Now that is an expensive hobby!

Same here. Pre-ordered.

I prefer the spring preorders more than winter's at least I can get myself busy thinking about other things than what I pre-ordered when I'm sipping a cocktail in club on the sea side

To be honest cost wise, a module is less that I pay for 3 days worth of groceries, or half of a good night in town, So I will not be nagging about pricing, and I play about 99% of my flying offline, having good fun. Not meant to be nagging at otherts at all, but the way people look at it are different, and it should be a sustainable business for ED as well.

You can hunt a cow with a F-16C in DCS after it released.
