Quoted from mikehay1:
This is my question. Is the recent rise (some say rocketing rise) of RBION popularity and prices due to everyone playing pinball arcade and now wants one because of the Halo effect?
As mentioned, it didn't hurt. I wouldn't give it too much credit though. Up until recently (website redesign), the best player on the planet had it listed as his favorite game on the WPPR website (he has a sample game). He also did an epic video tutorial that everyone (except you?) has seen:
When the best player on the the planet says it's a good game, people listen.
Did you capitalize Halo intentionally (gamer), or did autocorrect do that?
