Is there combat? Wonder who would win in a confrontation between these two?

no combat but they just perform really well and are fast. one of my favorite things do is fly thru canyons with full afterburners. its challenging, fun and also looks really cool with the terrain ripping by and getting as close to the cliff edges as possible. sometimes we'll do follow the leader type stuff and try to race one another.

sweet. I have the f15 on PC its great. been waiting for it to come to Xbox. The Typhoon on Xbox is a decent holdover but the f15 is better imo.

Abriael46d ago (Edited 46d ago )

I would actually advise against purchasing the Typhoon on any platform. It's a really low-quality aircraft with a cockpit and instruments that have nothing to do with the real one.

They literally ripped them out of the A320 because they couldn't be bothered working on their own.

Anything by that developer (bredok3d) is on my absolute avoidance list.

I guess you mean the model in game, the typhoon is a much more capable fighter than the F15. It's only really beaten by the F22 and possibly the Dassault Rafale in a dogfight.

What is the cost for each plane? One 3rd party DLC plane is $29.99 or $39.99 I can't remember which. Microsoft needs to put a cap, on what developers can charge, just for one add on. I would love to have these, but I am not spending crazy money. Microsoft will be adding fighter jets free, with the Top Gun DLC. It just sucks that DLC has been pushed to next year when Maverick comes put.

You're not forced to spend anything or to purchase anything. Microsoft will never put any cap and they already confirmed it. Developers are free to charge whatever they feel their work warrants.

One relatively complex aircraft can easily require as much work as a single game for this kind of flight simulator. Some require years of development on top of licensing costs, so developers will charge according to the work that goes into it to make sure they turn a profit.

You can absolutely expect pricing close to $100 or possibly even above for the most complex study-level airliners.
