Has there been any word on pricing for the new playfield kit?
Quoted from aingide:
Pinball on a Stick released their earnings report for the MN State Fair and SP earned as much as KISS and Star Trek. Only 1% lower than TWD.
This game, more than any other, proves that theme + truly accessible gameplay is a winning combination on location.
Heighway can really take advantage here; it's a proven earner on location and a desirable theme for collectors.
The question is does Heighway want to sell to coin operators or collectors? Or to pinball "players"? There's room for all, I suppose.
Quoted from Aurich:
Heighway isn't a boutique company looking to just sell to collectors, these are definitely built to be real commercial machines, and they're very interested in the operator market.
It just happens that there is not only room for all, but that features that appeal to ops (game swapping, easy repair) are also nicely relevant for home collectors too.
Yeah, definitely. I know an op interested in Heighway's features(modular design and removable mechs), and he's also the sort of op that doesn't want a South Park because he hates the sound effects, doesn't care if it earns well or not. An op with an integrity.
It would be neat if there was some overlap of the art on top of the screen - understanding that all graphics on the screen would need to be designed with some overscan/headroom in mind. The idea being that the void isn't simply blank when the screen is off, but integrated into the art. Wish I was an artist so I could show what I'm imagining.
Quoted from Aurich:
It is what it is really. I just don't subscribe to the worry about what it looks like when it's off. Games that are off are games that are off, they don't look all that great. The screen will be plenty alive when it's one.
It's not that, I just like non-square bezels on arcade equipment, and overlays on screens.
No Ripley on the playfield? Maybe that's because you're playing the part of Ripley.
Quoted from Hazoff:
I have to state this, if you can't name 3 Iron Maiden songs I really hope ur not wearing that as a badge of honour because its much more a case that you should feel foolish and have realized that most likely you enjoy crap music or ur an old geezer and then I'll give you a pass.
The only people I've met that are really into Maiden are 30 years my senior.
