Quoted from PoMC:

Wondering how many people are canceling Alien to buy Ghostbusters? Both are great themes, but GB is here and has blown away all expectations and is flat out gorgeous to look at.

Or how many people are canceling TH pre-orders? Or TBL pre-orders?

For some (that can't afford to simply buy every new release - Im jealously looking at You Banker), new titles will always cause folks to reconsider and cancel (or sell existing machines).

That aside, I just don't get all the comparisons between GB and Alien artwork. The two are thematically worlds apart (literally).

GB is a whimsical, colorful theme. Whimsical, colorful art is the perfect match.
Alien is dark. If they tried to replicate the GB style is would look like ass and just not fit (see Predator for an example).

My $0.02.

Im looking forward to PLAYING both (before deciding anything).

Quoted from spfxted:

Yes, and A few of my friends are switching to GB because it's ready now, and they figure they'll get Alien 6 or 8 months from now.

It's a good strategy.... and one I would follow myself.

I felt the same about people who were recently thinking of JUST getting into TH in the past couple months. I'd rather buy a game TODAY and play it for a year until TH's are shipping with non-insane lead-times and get one THEN.... flipping the existing machine (or not) for a nominal loss (if any).

Quoted from robotron:

its a 1500 deposit until it ready and you have to pay the balance. I don't understand how it makes a difference. you buy a gb and still in on an aliens with the low deposit of 1500.00. smh I don't get it.

Ah, I will admit I was thinking more along the lines of JJP where they are holding MUCH MORE money.

Thats a reasonable deposit.

I still would NEVER do it because I need to play a pin before buying, but for the preorder crowd, thats at least a reasonable number.

Quoted from fosaisu:

Because we Americans refuse to bow to pressure from "big nickle," of course.

Don't even get me started on the ridiculousness of circulating PENNIES as well!

Quoted from SLAMT1LT:

Side note:
Neither Stern not JJP released a Star Wars pin yesterday on Star Wars day. Therefore it is now impossible for either of them to credibly launch a SW pin, EVER!
