Quoted from delt31:
Original owners win either way. New design sure but even if they rerelease it's not just that's it's built differently but I would expect, if the rumors are true that the bally/Williams version would not incorporate the backbox screen and almost certainly not the pf screen. Both of those would be a significant difference along with the way it feels, art and looks.
To summarize you wouldn't have a CGC remake situation you would have two different games, which keeps they original just as desirable, especially late runs.
The more alien the better for the Pinball world!
Losing the screens would be unfortunate, since they are integral to the machine... If they stay, it will be expensive.
Quoted from Averell:
In my opinion it's all nonsens!!!
Maybe, but I'm hearing from a couple of reliable sources that this is happening soon.
