Quoted from Aurich:
Maybe. I can't help but think the market isn't big enough to sustain all of this, the excitement may turn into some deathwatching too. Who knows, not like any of us have access to numbers, but the prices keep going up, new companies keep appearing, and everyone I know is out of space for games. I know, we have a stupid bubble thread every other month, but is this all really sustainable?
Brian Eddy is one of my all time favs, I wish him nothing but the best of luck.
I agree with this sentiment too. It's great for pinball to have Eddy back but with prices going up and the secondary market just now starting to feel the effects of big write downs on $8k plus games you wonder what the fallout is going to be.
Maybe it just the secondary market that feels the brunt of all this NIB hitting us. It's fantastic but like Aurich says, people who are out of space have to move one out to move one in.
For now its great to have such awesome choices! Plus the new talent being developed like Eric at JJP, Spooky etc. with current crew and now Bowen and the old timers coming back like Eddy.
Enjoy it for as long as it lasts! Hopefully a LONG time.
