Should I Buy FS2004?

Sun May 07, 2006 8:26 am

With FSX (Flight Simulator X) coming out in December, do you guys think it is still worth it to buy FS2004 for $30? Or, should I just wait it out untill December, when the new game is bestowed upon us?

Thanks for your help!

The question is, do you want to fly now or do you want to fly later?

Well, I want to fly now. Don't we all? But, is it worth it?

I got my copy of FS9 a little over a month ago. I'm not sorry I did, as I have a computer that runs it just fine, but my lag a bit when FSX comes out. My thinking is, go to GameStop or EB Games or someplace like that and get it there for $30 (or less if you have stuff to trade in). That's what I did, and the stuff I brought in came out to over $50, which means over $20 went toward reserving an upcoming game (Lego Star Wars 2 Big grin ).

Or if you have a friend or a guy that you know that works at Microsoft he can get it to you with an 80% discount.

Well, HOW MUCH do you want to fly now?  Smile

I'd say get it - FSX may have some issues with the release of Vista, and December is still a ways away.

I have two copies of the game, if you want I can sell you one cheap. I thought I lost my case so I went out and got another copy. Of course after I paid for it again, the other showed up. Let me know.

I stoped flying some month ago. I still have FS2002 with lots of add-ons, but it doesn't appeal to me anymore. Now, I'm waiting for the release of FSX. For FS9 I would have to buy a new PC, which could be outdated when FSX will be released. Therfore I wait until I know the specs so I can buy a Vista optimised PC which should run FSX smoothly.
At least I have a reason to look forward to the next winter  Wink

Has FSX been sighted at the E3 expo? I have not heard anything yet. I would think that if FSX was to debut in december it would surely be at the show? I hope this does not mean a delay (concurring with the Vista delay)
