Orbx’s John Venema today released a statement reassuring people that they wouldn’t be charged for a update to P3D V4!
In a post to the Orbx forums he wrote: ”
There’s been a bunch of speculation about our pricing policy for the next version of P3D, likely based on my previous posts back in December.
Let me clarify: we will NOT be charging anything for our products for the next version of P3D. They will be 100% free to use on the new platform. Better still, through the magic of FTXCv3 you won’t even need to re-download them.
He then went on to talk about P3D itself and Orbx’s involvement with LM’s NDA:
“Please do NOT ask me or any member of the Orbx team about any tech details about any new P3D releases from LM, or why we can make this zero-cost promise. We are under NDA and we will not be pressed into talking about it for obvious reasons. If and when LM give us permission to discuss things publicly then we’ll do so.I just wanted to reassure those with a sizeable investment in Orbx products for P3D that you won’t be asked a penny more to upgrade.

This is good news, as many people have huge investments in Orbx scenery and it would be a shame if they required payment to update, we just need other major developers like FSL, PMDG and Aerosoft issue these statements.
