I got a reply in the Aerosoft forum: the Best of edition is exactly the same as the normal X-plane 10 Global…

Then why the price difference … ??? “Best of” are two expensive words.

No idea, but I’m not about to complain if they lower the price. 😉 Probably marketing, or just a new production batch or something…

a) What price difference? EUR 49.98 incl. VAT more or less corresponds with US$59.99 ( $1.00 equals EUR 0.76 as of time of writing)

b) I think our German Aerosoft friends simply added “Best of” for marketing reasons! 🙂

(PS: There used be a cheaper, “regional” edition. Not sure if that is still available)

Johan, the boxed version in Europe costs EUR 69.99 via Aerosoft. So, there is a EUR 20 price difference…

I also asked this question in the Aerosoft forums, let’s see when I get a reply.

No, actually. I was trying to work that out last night so I could post this one. I can but presume that it just includes all the updates you would otherwise have to download. Anyone else know?

Stefaan: The Aerosoft boxed edition has always contained some of their airports – I think the same ones, although I’m currently on the iPad and not my PC so can’t check. (Edit: yes, they are the same airports, after checking…)

Amongst some other stuff, you get quite some Aerosoft airports with it. The 64 bit is really the way to go for the future, switched to it about 2 months ago and really enjoying it.

Anybody know what the difference with the normal X-Plane 10 Global is? Except for the price?
