I doubt you will see a point where everyone switched over to xplane. Most using FSX will probably stick with FSX or have both. But FSX is not going away anytime soon. But thats a good thing as two platforms are good for this hobby and gives developers two streams of income. I will keep a close eye on Xplane as it does some things better ,but so far, Its not going to replace FSX for me anytime soon. That may change, if some good airport scenery comes out for it. Thats what its really missiing at this point.Robert FeddersenRob
I'm looking forward to PMDG in XPlane 10, i think in a round a year, we have all switched over. Imagine, never having to suffer from low frames, stutters, CTD's, or other problems anymore. What XPlane 10 needs at the moment is some good updates for e.g. the user interface, so it will be easier to set up controls, etc. and for the viewing system, cuz it's terrible.

Shore PMDG & all of us has switched to XP in a year.........
I will make the switch in around a year, when developers like Aerosoft, FSDT, Flight 1, etc, and of course PMDG have switched to XPlane 10.I'm looking forward to PMDG in XPlane 10, i think in a round a year, we have all switched over.

I would say that is like when your girlfriend went away and you are comparing other girls with your old one. Of course x-plane has different UI, has different everything!! because x-plane is not FSX... and don't pretend to.Well... FSX is great in graphics and addoms.. but PMDG think "ey... in 5 years how many users will have FSX if there is no more promotion for the young people to meet FSX? And maybe the future software and hardware can produce problems like windows7 produced in fs9?"FSX is great NOW.. but in 5 years? Today X-Plane changes everyday. Changes with new hardware and software. It is compatible with 3 Systems...... and it is alive for now. It is not FSX but it has more oportunities to be in 5 years alive than FSX and PMDG knows that.Prepar3d is a not final private user product.. and PMDG knows that.... unless something changes in future....So the future means PMDG maintain money entry... So if they don't move.. maybe in 5 years (10 years) PMDG is gone.. caput.. finito... Like other big companies died before PMDG.Meanwhile I fly both.. FSX and X-Plane.. and enjoy the plane of PMDG in FSX. Hope enjoy them in x-plane. For sure I preffer the NGX!! Not because the product itseft, but because the failure system it has. I believe PMDG should take the path that A2A is taking with their Accusim software.Well.... as you can see I have 2 girlfriends... (or 3 with DCS? or 4 with AeroflyFS, or 5 with Cliffs of dover?.. or 6 with BlackShark?. Golden age of the sims!!!) Enjoy your girls!
The user interface is not user-friendly at all.Controls are not easy to set up, and don't work like they should work.Viewing system is strange, I can't use the hatwtich on my yoke to look aroundThe game loads up very slow even with my SSDThe runway slopes look like downtown San Fransisco. :LMAO:Just needs some good updates.

Why? Seriously, i tried X-plane 9 and i liked very much. You can't compare default x-plane planes with NGX. But i realy liked Jrollon CRJ-200. It's not PMDG quality on systems, but it feels great in air,and i think you can't have flight dynamics on that level in FSX. I almost switched to X-plane, but then PMDG makes NGX. I can't wait for PMDG planes for X-Plane.I didn't try X-plane 10 (yet). But I'll try it very soon, and i don't think that X-plane 10 it's not better than X-plane 9. Tell me if i wrong, i'm realy interested in X-plane 10
X-plane 10 was a HUGE disappointment for me.
