They will be able to release it at that price or lower because they don't have to pay a designer or R & D costs, I think Metallica pro is a good example of comparison.
Quoted from Atomicboy:
I'll be honest, I was all in for a TH, but after hearing this, it's tipped the scales. I'm going to just lay low with what I have for the time being. I know what I'm into with what I have, and what to expect. I'd lose my shit if that starting happening to a new game I just bought.
Is this just happening with one game or a bunch? If Its one game I don't understand the concern especially if Jack had already responded and tried to make the customer happy.
Quoted from Atomicboy:
I don't know, I asked that in the other tread but didn't get an answer. I've been getting cold feet with everything lately though, and just don't want to risk any more stress in something not being what I hoped for. I don't know, but my gut is just telling me to just stick to what I have now.
All this pre-order/boutique insanity in the last while is driving me away from the new market completely. I still feel the most comfortable with JJP for a long shot, but when I read the issues with PF's chipping, I thought - ok, that's the breaking point for me.
Well hopefully jjp will respond to these concerns, he seems to have sent a new playfield to fix that problem. I'm sure things like this happened back in the day with bally/williams. That complete plastic playfield protector is looking like a must have about now.
Quoted from whitey:
so after I spend $8500 on a game I need to buy playfield protection? Are you serious
For that kind of money that's F÷=% uped.
No, I was just kidding. Nothing to see here.
How is that any different then mylar that has been put on games for the last 25 years? It's $150 and a suggestion if you are worried about wear on your machine.
Whatever dude, if a bunch of people come forward and show that its happening to their games then it a problem, but until then you are just hating because well you hate jjp. As I said before lets wait and see what jjp's response to the situation is instead of the constant doom and gloom. I want to hear of some operators that have the game on location with a ton of plays and hear how they have held up.
Pinball manufacturing is not perfect, there are gonna be defective parts that go unnoticed but its how the company handles the problem is what matters.
That was agreed upon by the customer. And now he's not happy with it. If anything Jack tried to keep the customer happy by shipping him a free playfield. I don't see anything wrong with the way it was handled. If it was my game I wouldn't have settled on an unpopulated playfield but hindsight is 20/20. Maybe Jack will chime in about it today before it picks up a head of steam.
