After showing off Virtual PC 3.0 at MacWorld Expo NY ’99, Connectix today announced that version 3.0 of their PC emulator will be available as an upgrade for previous owners of Virtual PC starting 17 September, and as a complete package including Windows 98 starting 20 September.

Some new features are Internet connection sharing between the Mac and Virtual PC, AppleScript support, faster networking, SoundBlaster 16 support, and faster PC disk performance. Another interesting new feature is “extensive USB device support,” but you can’t use it until you have Mac OS 9 and Windows 98 installed.

Pricing for the upgrade is US$44, in their online store, while the full version costs US$49 with PC DOS, US$149 with Windows 95, and US$179 with Windows 98.
