Seems like you're trying to say "nyeah nyeah we told ya so." Not any better than a naysayer.
Congrats to the OP for waiting it out.
Wasn't that Christmas dinner 2011? Then again Dec 2012? Then again Dec 2013 for many still?
Can't we just be happy folks are getting what they paid & waited for?
Its just another pin that I will own someday. With the wait I would of waited till 250 LE's were complete before shipping one. The trickle of pins into the wild and homes is not doing any good for true discussions. I'd say more then 10% are up for sale already wether shipped or not. I personally don't feel the price will go up but it may. It is a 6500 pin to me. I think Jack nailed the original price. Some need money some want to profit and some just want out or don't like it. We will never get the true story until there are hundreds out there. If I had one and wasn't happy with it I would sell without trashing it as most would. I played it a lot and think with finished code it will be in the TZ TAF SM etc. A pin group. BUT its just a pin and will hopefully sell 4000 plus for Jack to continue to sculpture his new Pin company!!!

I don't think Jack could have waited x more months to ship out 250 at once. He needed to get some out the door. It was a big step for a startup complany to start shipping product. The next step is to ramp it up while keeping quality high, which is what I'm sure he's concentrating on now. I was there last week and there were lots on pins in all production stages.

Another reason against waiting to release 250 games at once is that if there were small problems to fix you have to address it on all 250 games rather than catching it early on just a small number of games. These early release games are essentially the beta testers for the production games. Same thing holds true for Stern on issues such as the drops resetting on their own on Metallica and the power pack on Transformers.
Thankfully the Grammar Nazi is on the job. Otherwise the actual meaning of some of these posts would be lost on us.
