    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. A new Stern Pro is not $7000 and a new Stern Premium is not $9000. I feel like I’m well off and I can’t afford that. A new Stern Pro is about $800 and a new premium about $1200 thanks to the price increases. This is steep, but doable. How many people here are buying every new Stern and never rotating out their pins? That’s EXPENSIVE! If you are selling your AIQ, IM, or JP Premium to fund the new Godzilla game because Elwin is the bomb, how much out of pocket is it really? You can only enjoy so many games. Let some go if you haven’t turned them on in a while and get something new. I promise there are tons of buyers eager for our pin. Let it go to a new home of someone who will play it until its down to bare wood (which might not take that long with JJP).

    I think the elephant in the room both sides are missing is that alot of the LE buyers are buying simply to get a machine in hand, now. If I'm not mistaken, there is still a backlog of orders for Mandalorian Premium and Stern is moving on to the next pin without delivering them. Buying an LE gets you moved to the front of the line. I wonder how much of the demand for LEs will disappear once you can go to your local distributor and buy most premiums again with no wait.

    Speaking of price increases:

    From Replay Magazine: Stern to charge monthly fee for code and features associated with online platform.

    Quote:

    All-Access Connected is a subscription version of the experience, focused on providing additional player features along with behind-the-scenes development stuff, early access, special events and quests. In the future, we intend to create exclusive game extensions, such as special access to new modes or new rules and features to increase the All-Access Connected value.
