Hey, how's it going everyone. I'm in the market for buying a new stern to replace my firepower I've had the past few years. There's a showroom me and my fiancee went to over the weekend and we both really loved the new TMNT and Avengers that they had there, so we're really leaning towards one of them. I called up the distributor and asked them about pro/premium availability and all that. They still are taking new orders but he offered to sell the pros he had in the showroom for about 300-400 off their normal price.
So my question is, is it a good or bad idea to buy demo models? The additional layer of complexity to this is the fact that we're in the middle of a pandemic. When we went to this showroom (I wouldn't really call it a showroom, it was a tucked-away room in an open market place in a mall, and it had very little foot traffic) there were barely any other people, so I'm wondering if the demo models receive very little play. (It's orange county pinball showroom in laguna hills, if anyone is familiar).
I'm also considering trading in my firepower to the company for credit towards the game. I know it's not the best bang for my buck, but I'd rather have a simple way to get it off my hands.
I'd love any feed back on to buy a demo model or not, pro vs premium, or if trading in firepower is a TERRIBLE decision. I'm overall a very fiscally responsible person and would like to save money, however, this is a luxury purchase, and if I'm going to have a better experience spending some more cash, I have no problem doing it. Thanks in advance for any help and advice!
