Quoted from PtownPin:

Although I think its BS that they locked out their distribution channel on the CE's in the end greed is good for any company. This is the new JJP, and its about making a great product and maximizing profit....nothing wrong with that. Now we all know what to do if your interested in their next CE. Jump on their website and wait until you can put one in your shopping cart and buy it....u have to assume none will go to distributors in the future.

Problem in the future will be when JJP calls a distributor to do them a favor and fix a game that was sold direct. I could see many distributors telling JJP no more doing warranty fixes for free on direct sold machines. When you screw over your distributors AKA the people who service and fix your machines, probably won't end well i'm thinking.

Quoted from fosaisu:

Would a distributor really do a free repair on a game they didn’t sell? Maybe something minor to build goodwill with the customer, but it’s hard to believe they wouldn’t look to JJP to cover the cost of significant warranty work on a machine someone else sold.

Absolutely!! I know for a fact JJP does this on a semi regular basis, even if JJP sends the parts out the distro is still out labor. Bottom line is if everyone goes direct, who's fixing these machines when they break under warranty?
