Quoted from MrBally:
Let's be honest, at least 25% of us here would say $800.00 was too high a price had they been offered at that price initially. Personally, $1999.99 would be a good price IMO.
Exactly. I posted this in another thread, but in the mid '70s, Bally sold their home game for $700 - $800 at Sears -- IN THE MID '70s!
The $800 price point is 40 years old. $800 dollars in mid-70's money is actually over $3000 in today's dollars. So for the same money today, you'd get a lot more game with The Pin, than you did with the mid-70's Bally home game.
It still feels like a lot of money, though.
