I have other games I can play...it gets here when it gets here.
Quoted from LadySlingshot:
Are you getting an GB LE? Anyone else feel Stern may have announced GB before they wanted to with all the leaks? Maybe not. One thing is for sure, with the movie in theater in 2 weeks, they definitely want to be shipping by then. Have to imagine Stern will want some nice LE's at the film events coming up.
I don't think Sony would want the machine at those events. I don't think they want everyone reminded about the vastly superior movies. Everything I have read about this new one, makes it appear to be a train wreck.
When I saw Ghostbusters (1984) in the theater 2 weeks ago, after the movie, they had a short preview for the new one. They actually showed the end scene where all 4 women cross the streams (the shot didn't have any visual effects in it). All I could think is "Really?? Really??? This is the best they can do is just ripoff the original at every turn?"
Quoted from Arcade:
The sound is amazing on this pin.
The Game Exchange did a live stream at one of the shows and had the sound coming through the headphone jack on the Spike board.
No show noise and just crystal clear sound.
It was really impressive.
There's a definite sound improvement on the SPIKE system.
Quoted from iceman44:
Option A - Get pin NOW and bitch about insert ghosting and who knows what the F else
Option B - Let Stern reject shit play fields, fix the problems, have it delayed a bit, and we get our pristine ANAL perfect pins, yeah?
I'm guessing wait and stfu?
I plan on owning this game for a very long time...what's a few week wait?
I'm guessing August for mine...As long as it's perfect, I do not care about the wait.
Quoted from kpg:
I waited to buy my MET premium 2 years after the first one rolled off the line, and it had so many problems out of the box it was down for a month after I unboxed it. Trust me, you are just as likely to get a beater one day into production as you are a couple years into production. It's just the roll of the dice with NIB pinball machines.
Was yours built on a Monday?
Quoted from parabol420:
Very frustrating, it seems like every other distributor out there is getting theirs, but Cointaker doesn't seem to have any information whatsoever. Then I see threads where other distros are telling people that premiums are out in August, and we haven't heard anything regarding our LEs. I'm starting to get fed up. Anyone else feeling this way or am I just overreacting a bit?
Overreacting...first world problems....there isn't any other country I'd rather be in.
Quoted from vireland:
Definitely not finished this week. Stern is supposedly out of GB LE parts (I'm assuming the troublesome playfields), and they're not ramping back up on LEs until beginning of Aug...allegedly. This basically puts GB Premiums to the end of August. Ugh.
Ugh...I hope my LE gets here before the new movie is out on video.
Quoted from CaptainNeo:
why would you buy a house with no room for pins? We have been looking around for a house for 4 years. the gameroom is the number 1 priority. If it can't fit 40+ games and able to get them in the room, it's a no go. Hence why we are still here.
I couldn't agree more. I've been looking for the past 2 years and haven't found anything that I like and has a basement (for the game room).
Just a week ago, it seemed like Stern was shipping 1 LE per day.
Now it seems like they are up around 2-3 a day.
I'm opening up mine later today.
Is there a fix for the bent metal ball guide already installed at the factory?
