Been watching the doo doo show since the reveal.
My quick impartial overview thoughts.
What a total crap theme. I use a phone as a tool, not for entertainment as does most of the pinball buying demographic (older). I really like the future city and disaster aspect but that is lost in the name and main cell phone feature for most. I've always said theme is very important. With so many games out there most people want one that is a great theme to them when laying out the cash, or at least a reasonable theme (whether licensed or unlicensed).
Phone integration means nothing to me and most of the pinball crowd I know (ie older people). And selfies? Ughh.....
Looks like it could be really fun. Love to play it. The machine looks pretty good other than that strange woman styled robot on the field.
At $9k minimum I wonder if it will sell with the weak theme. More people would like or buy it with play and first hand experience, but if it doesn't sell well it will be hard for many people to get to play or experience it. Especially where it is hard to find pins already. Chicken slash egg problem I foresee.
I do hope the pin does well, we'll see.
