Hate to say it Dantebean, but this will be sterns new tier model.
Gary isn't making the financial or marketing decisions much anymore.
So let's recap.
Moving to a huge warehouse and adding assembly lines to work on multiple projects to diversify at the same time.
Improving game code and letting designers make LE models without bom constraints.
Going to a two tier system per model instead of 3 or more.
Selling modifications directly from Stern now.
Building more than just pinball machines in the future.
Contracting work to boutique pinball manufacturers.
Stepping up software and rules implementation dramatically.
Quite a bit of strategy and some adaptation going on from what I'm seeing.
