Fellow IL2FBAces (I love to throw in the whole heritage) I was hesitant and decided to go ahead and pre-order online, and I think the reason is important. It occurred to me that even though a small comminity such as ourselves couldn't make much of a difference, that a strong pre-order would help to ensure that companies like UBI continue to support Sim Professor Oleg and the boys. Heck, they pay for this forum, I'll go ahead and pre-order.
What got me this whole train of thinking is the comparison to book sales, the higher the pre-order demand the greater numbers given to advertising, which in turn sells more books\games, etc. It's actually just basic economics <ggg.> All the best, LongHorn

I'm confused about the game's release date. On Amazon.co.uk it say some thing like October but Amazon.com says November. If it happens the same as LOMAC we won't know the release date.

And that's a nice thought LongHorn i'm sure you will make poor Oleg's day http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. Maybe he'll send you a birthday card! With the money from his pigy-bank

Tsunami, I think you misunderstand.
Here in Washington State we can pre-order online but your card is not charged until the sim ships. It's the best of both worlds, it indicates to UBI, Oleg and the Boys (note Sim Guys, I have yet to call him Oleg and the Deciples &lt;ggg&gt;,) and the online retailer that the flight sim is not dead and interest is high. UBI knows that, and Kudos to them. Do you guys realize that apart from the IL2 there is only LOMAC to count as a new sim? Falcan is now six or seven years old, European Air War still lives on my drive, but is also vintage now (but the gameplay was killer.) Janes is gone now. Remember those four HUNDRED page manuals? Notice I didn't even mention M$. I say we support UBI and Oleg, I too wasn't going to pre-order, I've decided it might just be a good idea to support the type of folks who love to fly.... All the best, LongHorn

I agree with the sentiment.

They won't collect until FP ships means if I wait for releace we are giving the same support, you and I. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I know you say pre~order means showing support. Past purchases of FB are the real support, not pre~order.

Sorry but I just think it is funny to announce to the 1000s of people on this forum you are going to pre order a game http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. Oleg isn't going to know or care if you order it...

I'm going to support the nice people at E-bay and Taiwanese drug barons who sell there items for 1/2 the price in the shops http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.
