How is it that a Boeing certified virtual airliner ship like the PMDG 777 or PMDG 737 NGX for Microsoft's Flight Simulator X and Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D that faithfully simulates over 99% of the real aircraft's counterparts sells for a fraction of the price of this yet to be delivered RSI ship that in no way shape or form will ever match the quality and fidelity of a PMDG product? Intrinsically, either the PMDG products are worth more but being sold too cheaply, or RSI is suggesting that its Genesis Starliner is worth far more?
Tell me if this was a single player simulator who would really pay $400 USD + tax for this virtual ship? Okay I get it, they are pricing it so that it is an 'exclusive' and it is not meant that everyone can afford this ship. If that is the case, then why set the price at $400? Why not say, we will only ever produce (sell) a limited number of these ships, and there will not be any more. [continued below]....
What gives me the most cause for concern is that by asking for an arbitraryily high price of entry, there is absolutely no guarantee of any sort from RSI that they won't do a little quantitative easings of their own down the road when they need a second or third round of cash infusions and then what is to stop them from selling out the early "exclusive" members of the Genesis club by offering it at a much reduced price to the general public and masses once they already got what they could from the so-called high rollers?
They are basically just printing money, it is a license to create value out of thin air, virtual ships and bits on a server, cost them nothing in terms of variable cost of production. What they are really selling is the exclusivity of the ship at this point, much more so then the actual instrinic value of such a virtual ship itself... Ironically, that should give us all the greatest pause because given RSI actions and behaviors there is nothing to lend anyone to believe that RSI won't do a bait and switch and devalue the value proposition of the Genesis @ $400 by later selling it @ $200.
