    Love me a good innovation thread - gives me an opportunity to link to this classic Multimorphic video (check out the booj):

    Too many innovations to mention in the P3 but Gerry does a pretty good job of listing them here:


    However, I think it's greatest innovation is how it allows anyone to create their own pinball game. A whole new era of indie pinball games is coming, made possible by the P3.

    Quoted from cait001:

    Will pinball get to a point where the inherent layouts are absolutely exhausted?

    This will never happen. If you have ever tried to design a layout, you would realise that there are an infinite amount of choices to make along the way. For every final design, there are hundreds of acceptable variations that the designer rejected to get there.

    Quoted from dung:

    Its a dead horse that wishes people would stop beating it. The reasons many are against competing via wifi are well discussed elsewhere. For many this is not a plus.

    Oh, believe me, it's a very live horse that is developing and growing. People are developing new games right now on the P3 using Internet connectivity in different ways. In bingopodcast's new game Ranger in the Ruins, "when you lose a game, if your P3 is connected to the Internet, some 'ghost' data will be written, which can then allow you to appear within another's game". Internet connectivity brings a whole host of new interactive gameplay options and they are not all about competing. Players on different machines could work together, for example, in an online co-op game. It would be a little close-minded to dismiss all the fun and interesting possibilities because you are worried that someone is going to cheat against you in an online tournament.

    Quoted from cait001:

    Here is some innovation in pinball: a company representative that understands pinside and doesn't fall into it's traps!

    Gerry is either unusually nice or he has a very good poker face, I can't work out which it is
