    Quoted from JodyG:

    A new batch of Premium machines was made last July for Australia...I am still trying to track down the post from last fall where someone was on a tour and saw new pros being built. Stern has never announced on social media that GB was no longer being made, like they did for Metallica and others.

    Yes. Automated had new Pros/Premiums in stock back in the Spring. Who knows. If they do anything they might go Pro route like they did for GOT. But that is wishful thinking.

    Quoted from JodyG:

    I am too lazy to look it up, but didn't Dennis Nordman get some kind of royal royalty screwing on Woah Nellie?

    Whoa Nelly wasn't a typical game. Nordman and Freres made it as a boutique spec-game and Kapow was involved in some way. Hardly the standard designer working in-house situation.

    He didn't get screwed the game just didn't sell for shit.

    He was telling people he made $4 in royalties off that or something.

    Quoted from seenev:

    I think that's going against the consensus here.
    I work for a company that makes royalty management software. I don't know anything about Stern's contracts, but I would guess they aren't doing any kind of per game royalties. For one, they're probably not a big enough company to justify the overhead of processing those kinds of royalties, or even if they are, they don't strike me as being organized enough. I also think we'd be hearing more solid production numbers for each game if royalty statements were going out to any stakeholders.

    I think the answer is in the middle... I believe they can get bonuses/payments based on how well a game sells. Stern may be savvy enough to limit such things to the first run or time.. So not really royalties as much as simple performance bonuses that can be scoped down - not that the person has any ownership or residual rights to the property in perpetuity.

    I think once was enough.

    All,
    Any chance of a Ghostbusters vault anytime relatively soon ? Any rumors of this ?

    Yep.
