Microsoft Flight Simulator arrives in the form of 10 double-layer DVDs in their physical version
If the digital versions are not your thing, and you want to be a virtual pilot with the Microsoft Flight Simulator, you will have to arm yourself a little patience, and that is that the European market will have access to a physical version thanks to the Aerosoft distributor, in which you will have to insert in your computer no less than 10x double-layer DVDs to perform the complete installation, yes, surely after the installation you will have to download the odd update of the game, so save some extra patience.
“Aerosoft will deliver the two physical versions (Standard € 69.99; Premium € 129.99) of this venerable simulator to customers in Europe. Including 10 (!) Double-layer DVDs and a printed manual in a spectacular box, it is a ideal way to enter the new era of flight simulation, “said Mathijs Kok, administrator of the company’s official forums.
“For the past few months, we have been working closely with Microsoft’s spirited team and talented Asobo developers. They have helped us prepare our plug-ins for the new simulation platform and, in a very small way, our 27 years of experience have have helped create this amazing simulator.
We should be able to start shipping the physical issues around August 21st. The retail version only gives you a nice box, a printed manual and about 90 GB that you don’t have to download. There is no difference between boxed retail and the version that Microsoft sells directly. “
Luckily for Microsoft, using 10 disks to install a game could be a record, and it is that we have to go back to the ancient Monkey Island 2, which was released in the form of 11 diskettes in its version for the Commodore Amiga computer, although they were diskettes and not discs.
