Volo Airsport v3 is a baseline, a solid platform that we can build tons of content for over a long period of time. The people who currently buy Volo Airsport are the enthusiasts, the ones who really get a kick out of the deep and nuanced flight model that we built, and that want to support the game early so it can grow.
If that's not you, that's perfectly fine! Check back later, and maybe then you'll find enough there to justify a purchase.
We don't think $13 is absurdly expensive, to be honest. Destiny costs $60, and I wouldn't even play that if you gave me money for it. But for other people it's worth way more than that, which I think is cool. Each to their own, and all that.
Thanks for the feedback, appreciated. :)
