This is sweet. If you get sick of a game, you sell the art work and playfield to someone else and pop in a new game. The only problem I see with it is lack of titles. If Heighway can produce 2 or 3 titles a year at a cost of $4000 then the pinball revolution will have begun. For the cost I would buy one of these and I don't see myself buying a NIB Stern any time soon.

Quoted from Zampinator:

I believe they already have their next 3 titles picked & in some phase of development from what I understand. The goal is to produce at least 3 titles a year. They are Not a boutique pinball company, they are positioning themselves to be a major player in the industry.

Imagine trading your playfield kits with other people in your local pinball community, like Nintendo cartridges back in the 80's!

Exactly! That sounds awesome.

Quoted from frolic:

"downsides" I can think of are:
-engineering costs associated with the process
-Things like the LCD are swapped with the playfield, so there are some redundant costs
But so far Heighway is making competitively priced games.

A potential down side for me is they are based in GB, not in the USA.
