Quoted from timab2000:
They have already released a bunch of playfields that I'm sure people would still love to have. So why not reissue some of those as well, they already have all of the above.
You'd do yourself a huge favor in saving face by simply reading CPR (Kevin's) old posts. He's gone over this numerous times.
You're just coming across like a spoiled child who can't get what they want.... not listening or caring why you can't... just repeating that you want it.
Making PFs requires
Having the art
Having the permission to do the piece
Having the inserts (which require huge leadtimes and huge quantities.. and not all are always available)
Actually producing them (and the multiple stages that takes)
Then selling that inventory
These are projects that take MONTHS to get to production, requires all the money UP FRONT in supplies and production... and then at the end you hope people actually buy it. If they don't, you have already spent the money. Lead time on inserts alone can be months and require minimum orders in the thousands.
It's not something that can be done 'on demand' or even 'when we want to' - Because of the materials constraints, they need to schedule and group projects to make it viable to produce the stuff at a price point that makes sense.
This is why they go through such lengths to ensure the sales demand is there before running a title. You gotta run a sizable batch, you gotta pay for it, you have the time spent making that title instead of another one.. you have finite production capacity.
When it comes to re-running titles... they are the ones that knew how well titles sold vs the addressable market that you some rando thinks is really out there. They also know they are competing against themselves. Every time they make a PF, they are not making another title... so they gotta make sure the one they chose to make represents the best market opportunity. So every PF not sold really is 2x the opportunity lost...
