Quoted from jungle:
Green you are right. Once JJP have several games on sale and plenty of second hand games are available to operators all other machines will look obsolete almost as much as what happened in 1947. What pinheads like will be secondary. From now onwards if you have great content it needs to be in your face. Jack knows this.
I happen to think it will make even less of an impact than the transition from alphanumeric to DMD, and is far less of a big deal than people make it out to be. I'd buy a brand new game with nothing but alphanumerics if it was fun and had good rules and a kick ass art package.
I'm looking forward to what we can do with the LCD screen for Alien, I'm into color and animations too. But it's definitely not the reason I play pinball, and it's not going to make or break any game for me.
