Quoted from absocountry2:
Why is it that everytime a Stern machine breaks, the people that mention it are Stern haters? I do not hate Stern but I feel that their machines feel different than the older machines. At times some of the parts do feel a little cheap. That does not mean the game/company is hated
i'm with you Abso..my point being that WE pay thousands of dollars for a new product..that shouldn't cost us that much, for the quality we are getting. seems to me they rush the pins off the line as fast as possible..not really a good inspection team maybe? this day and age..EVERYTHING is made cheaper....think automobiles for example. cheap plastic, that breaks, so we then have to continue to buy parts to 'fuel' the industry. i almost wonder if stern makes them cheaper so they know that they're service and parts department will be making bank. you never know what goes on behind closed doors.
the illuminati conspiracy is a great example. we could be in the dark, luckily Jersey Jack is comming around the corner to balance out the pinball word once again!
