After the also surprising announcement of Microsoft Flight Simulator during the 2019 E3, PMDG silently decided to shift the development of the NG3 to the promising new platform. Randazzo explains that Prepar3D v4 and MSFS are “two very very different animals, with very very different capabilities.” The NGXu was decided for release on Prepr3D v4 as a “generational replacement to the 8.5 year old NGX.”. Both products being based on the same core, PMDG decided to give a discount on the NG3 of the amount of the price of the NGXu for those who decide to get the NGXu before 31DEC19 In other words, the NGXu for Prepar3D v4 is available right now for $99.99 USD. Buyers of the NGXu before 31DEC19 will receive a $99.99 USD rebate on their purchase of the NG3 once it is released. Randazzo further explained that the anticipated market price of the NG3 will be $139.99 USD. Customers who buy the NGXu before year end will be able to purchase the NG3 for an additional fee of $40.00 USD, and will own both products.
