    Quoted from vid1900:

    Why not price them same as The Pin?
    Simpler than The Pin, and all the art and playfield design is already done.
    People who remember those games might impulse buy one when they are looking at Pool Tables or Chex Hockey at the gameroom store. "Hmmmm, do I want a pinball machine or a Chex......?"
    Price it a $5K and only true pinheads are even going to consider it.
    As a bonus, if they ran Fathom, EBD or Centaur, they could run a few hundred extra playfields and backglasses for even more $$$$$$$$

    the aspect of being able to sell the extra PF's or BG's I think might be an aspect that they need to explore. It does give them some "easy" money on top of the selling of the games. Also plastics.

    Quoted from Wickerman2:

    They are NEVER going to remake any of the titles mentioned here for under 5k...or likely even 6k or more. That is 100% pipe dream.

    Unfortunately I have to agree. It'd be great if someone approached PPS and got the license to remake early SS games for $4,000. But kind of hard to see who could take that up, since they'd need to sell (and therefore produce) a large number to get close to the profit that could turn selling an "A list" DMD remake at $6-7k. Of course it should be cheaper to make a game with fewer components, but it's hard to believe that it costs $3k more to remake an MM than a Fathom. So it would take someone with the capacity and financing to actually make a large number of games at a lower profit margin, yet willing to pass up licenses that would likely produce a much better return.

    Of course Stern could do it if they wanted. But I imagine they're quite happy dominating the "low end" NIB market with $4,800 pros.

    Selling just a few hundred or so playfields and backglasses would easily add a quarter of a million bucks to their coffers.

    And now that PPS has stolen back many of the original films from Gene, the artwork separations are readily available.

    That's because it doesn't.

    You can't blame any business for not wanting to leave any money on the table, PPS included.

    Just a few years ago a game with "LE" features sold for $3800, and now that has doubled. (and that was a real game with a silkscreened cabinet, not crummy decals).

    Inflation has been historically low, and they are building a larger volume of games, so the only reason the price has doubled is **because they can**.

    Totally agree! I don't fault PPS/CGC for charging what the market will bear for MMR. I just meant that with titles like MB and AFM out there still, it's hard to imagine if/when anyone would get around to remaking titles that would realistically need to be priced at $4,000 to sell in any kind of quantity. Which is a shame because I'd love to see a NIB Sorcerer.
