The unannounced price jump is slightly surprising, but it's not out the realm of what it's worth, considering what's being simulated and what other things in the wider market cost.

Full price doesn't bother me anyway as by the time ED get through the chunky to-do list on it over the next year and it is in a place where I want to buy it, it'll probably be on sale again or I'll be able to use my bonuses on it. Or it'll be bundled with carrier related dlc.

Glad to see it's much closer to seeing the light of day though, and I'm sure the EA version will make plenty of people happy.

Hello fellow simmers. I would like to make a comment on the overall sentiment of the protesting DCS players. Let me add, that this post is not for the player with substantial disposable income. First, it is imperative that we understand the nature of capitalist economics and how it relates to and deals with monopolies. Enough said. I will eventually buy this product because there is no other competition; and lets face it, it is a damn good simulation. For we protesters, we must find a way to encourage other established flight sim companies that it is worth the endeavor and investment to entertain even the possibility of joining the genre we so dearly love---military flight sims. Many of these commercial/private flight sim companies already get increasing request for military aircraft. If commercial capitalism is to work, competition must be the single most important constituent.

Having substantial disposable income has nothing to do with it. You had 72 months notice that it was coming, you could have saved $1 per month and be all set...

This is all just non-sense... How about you start your own Dev company and 3 years later come back and tell us how wrong you were.

Default Sorry

Mr. Revelation, please forgive me if I offended you. I was merely trying to say that everybody is not able. As far as saving a dollar a week/month, I'll take that into consideration.

I'm not a snowflake; you didn't offend me. Facts are facts. If people weren't able to save $1 per month for the last 72 months, they have much bigger things to worry about and playing video games / sims should be the last thing they do with their time.

Possibly, also you can clearly see at the beginning of the vid that it is CVN 74 - the Stennis. looks like it got some TLC...

There is also a panel for the JHMCS where the pilot turns it on and off.
That's up to ED, sure, but it also depends on the documentation available. Pictures, videos, PDFs, all those things are extremely useful.
