    I found a great infographic on KLOV that really puts into perspective how many pinball machines are being manufactured today vs. in the golden age of pinball. Technically pre WW2 was the peak in pinball variety, and the fall in pinball manufacturing directly correlates to the rise in video arcade games.

    What's more interesting is total of each unit produced. In the 70s heyday even a modest seller was pushing 2-3k units with a new game every month or two. Bigger sellers in the 5-10k unit range and games like Flash almost hit 20k.

    Yeah I guess pounding some pins into wood and wiring up 1 solenoid was a bit easier and quicker. To me that data is meaningless.
