Railworks, SAVE $833.36 how can you pass that up?

#1 Edited by Six (621 posts) -

Package Price is: $1073.35 
you pay: $199.99
SAVINGS OF.... a shit load of dollars you could use on other.. "real" games.  BUT, How Can You Pass Up A Savings Of Over $800??
I bought Railworks back when it was a xmas Steam sale, without addons.  Now that Railworks 2 is out, it was updated for free.  I still don't have any addons.  I blame  DAVE SNIDER  and VINNY CARAVELLA  for buying this after the QuickLook.
I have no idea what anyone would need with all that DLC.

Is the DLC even worth that price? Isn't it just some trains?

I'm not buying it at all, and I'm saving $1073.35! Beat you.

i'd like to know who actually bought all 1000 dollars of this.

I've got a full cat litter box that was regularly priced at $1000 but I will sell it to you for $200 right now.  That will save you $800 too.

Wow, that is a totally different business model than the 49.99/59.99 plus 9.99 DLC model used by most computer game companies!   I guess rail-sim enthusiasts know what they want and are willing to pay for it.  Why couldn't a similar model work for flight sims?  Serious flight sims (especially combat sims) more or less died out because they became too realistic and complicated for the average consumer.  But why can't they put out Falcon 5.0 for 50 bucks (or something) and then charge  4.99-29.99 for different planes and scenarios?

Sigh ;_; I can't believe I looked at this and for a split second thought "hm, that's a good deal" :(
Well, I guess it is a good deal, but uhh...that's, um, quite a big number followed by a dollar sign.

I'll only buy it if it comes with an old timey conductor's hat.

I would get it, but unfortunately I don't speak train.

I actually really like Railworks. No way in hell I'd buy all that DLC though. But for all those sim enthusiasts out there, this is probably a steal.

I'm losing money all the time by not buying this... 
I still won't do it,though, because I'm rebellious like that. Take that, society!
