So I will chime in. I have not seen the story/interview but on a local radio station they mentioned a story that people are making home arcades due to the pandemic. Stern pinball states sales are up 500%.
Think about that. Sales are up 500%. So Stern does not release production numbers but I would guess conservatively that with 3-4 releases a year 5,000 machines/year is a realistic number. If sales are up 500% that means he has sales for maybe 20-25,000 games if that report is correct. That’s a HUGE demand for pinball by any manufacturer in today’s pinball world. Stern is not worried about JJP. Demand appears to be high and the pandemic has helped is what it sounds like.
