    Quoted from ChadTower:

    Will that data be accessible in any format from outside of a Stern pinball machine?

    I think this is where a real future for turning new teenage kids on to pinball could ignite. Especially if by some miracle a third party company could come in with programming that could bring together all of the new pins coming out from any company. So, instead of people signing up for tournaments on a "Stern Cloud Site" and a "Jersey Jack Cloud Site" and so on, with each player having to have a million different accounts to "compete" on different companies pins, there could be an all-encompassing tournament site. Could be great for pinball, I know I'm excited about "cloud" pinball, despite the many questions there are still out there to ask and figure out.
