Quoted from CaptainNeo:
might be obvious to some, but the way this group talks. I think they either forgot, or didn't realize that pinball used to be primarily bought on the secondary market.
Try to buy a AC/DC or Tron LE.
I preorder games I think I will like. There is no chance to get one in the best version if you don't preorder it. Perhaps it's something else in the US market.
And even if I had played games on location I couldn't say if I would like them at home.
For now I have 2 Keeper. AC/DC and Metallica. I got both NIB and I am very happy with both of them. I have a WOZ and will sell it this weekend. It's an awesome game and I like everything about it, only the theme let me sell it.
I had to wait for all of these games. With the STERN games I had to wait a long time for the code to be finished. I was angry with STERN cause they gave us no info about the progress in the development of the code. Waiting isn't a bad thing if there are news of progress. But silence is an asskick for every customer who is waiting.
Now it's the same with JJP.
There are no real news! The game is finished, but production won't start.
Why don't they fill this waiting time with news about the code? The hobbit is still a mystery for me , how will it play? What is planned with the upper right flipper..........there are so many thing we all want to now here. Waiting time can be frustrating or exciting. And perhaps it is just me, but I feel the last few month are more frustrating, when the only news we get are more delays with recriminations to the suppliers.
I don't believe they are so afraid about that we would criticize every detail they announce so everybody has taken a vow of silence.
At the end of this month they have a open house at JJP. If we will hear the same old stories about the game development we heard over and over with no real news, I will give up.
Cause I think if we are so close to the finish line, so near to the production, we should hear and see way more new infos about this game. I can't remember if it was the same with WOZ.
