Quoted from Thunderbird:When a person pays nearly $10,000.00 for any title, they expect and should receive many IP assets of any given IP. When they don’t get that, the perceived value is greatly diminished even though the game itself plays fantastic. This is marketing 101 and the real reason for a diminishing return on POTC business wise, even though the game play and JJP made up assets, not based on the movies, are good. This is why the plug was pulled on making more. JJP is filling orders and that’s it. They don’t want a lot of tables sitting around unsold, like they had with Hobbit.
Hobbit just may be the sleeper hit because it now has all IP assets in abundance. A good example of how POTC should have been done. I wasn’t even thinking of buying Hobbit till I watched Kevin and Nicks 2 streams. They sold me on it. Good job guys!
It is quite doubtful that prices for POTC are going to go up, as everyone will be focusing on the new titles that have full assets, like the ones we are discussing here; i.e., WW, TS, GNR, etc. since those games will be as good, if not better, since Pat is the designer, all new money will go to those tables. POTC will sadly be left behind, even though a good table. Would have been better if it didn’t have the POTC license. $10k is just too much money to have little in the way of IP and the lack of sales are proof of that fact. WW and TS will be the launching of a new era for JJP sales wise.
can u please provide link to Nick and kevin's review thx, Tony
