Quoted from moto_cat:

Per PPS,
A: The quality of a game is a function of many factors including parts selection, design, as well as build quality. For the MMR, the assembly is using OUR set of parts and OUR design. As for build quality, the objective is to have the same build quality as the original Medieval Madness. Additionally, we will incorporate CGC Quality Control people into the SPI line to address and escalate any build issues. Finally, SPI itself has major initiatives focused on improving build quality, which will benefit us.

I trust Stern quality control a heck of alot more than CGC quality control!
Remember this little gem? (Just saying)

Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

I would rather have a brand new game then something beaten up and "rare". That's just me though.

In most cases the clone/repo of the original ends up being worth less, this is true with most items Cars, Guns, ect
Will it hold true for pinball?? time will tell...

PS.Talking apples to apples here... not comparing a clapped out routed MM to a new MMr...
Comparing a nice example of a Williams MM vs PPS MMr

Quoted from pezpunk:

MMR is packed with features that make it in many ways superior to the original: full color LCD screen, triple-redundant LEDs with adjustable brightness and fade, software-integrated shaker, uncompressed .

Agree with some of this ^ but I will take 1 LED per insert (original MM) that I can easily swap out with different colors or maybe I don't want LED's at all... over the triple redundant new LED system that has the LED's soldered onto a giant board... JMHO

Exciting times in pinball my friends! I think we need to focus on the real problem for most of us:
1. Lack of $$$ to buy all the games we want
2. Lack of room to fit all the games we want if we could afford them all

Quoted from pezpunk:

the gameplay and look/feel improvements are relatively minor, but the underlying tech is a lot better. it's not really a difficult concept.
oh wait you are a MM owner, that explains it.

"but the underlying tech is a lot better"
I think you meant to say IF the underlying tech is alot better? I think we have all seen what "better tech" did for WOZ with the Board issues that it has been plagued with. MMr's new Tech may turn out to be way better than the original MM but lets be real it is WAY to early to proclaim that yet.
Lets revisit this topic in 1 year, 5 years...20 years

I wish PPS the best of luck as I am wanting CCr & MBr

Disclaimer: Yes I do own an original MM (this is my 5th MM in the last 12 years) so I am going to steal your gotcha moment

Quoted from pezpunk:

nah, you're making reasoned statements and not accusing me of mental illness.

LOL Pezpunk I think you are quite sane and I agree with you on many of your points
