Quoted from pintechev:
I really hope someone is able to make them so we can enjoy these awesome games for a long time to come.
I'd put money on it...someone will recreate them, it will be half the size with less components when its all said and done. The resources now available for a "hobbyist" to recreate anything electronic is staggering.
I was talking to a friend of mine who was has been operating for decades, he remembers taking truckloads of Gottlieb pins to the dump, the common thread was the broken boards that were NLA back then. With exception of some Atari and Alvin G stuff most boards have been recreated and even improved. Stern boards will be no different....
