Quoted from Thunderbird:

To be fair to us consumers, POTC while a good game, is way overpriced for what we get in return. Too many important IP assets not included for a $10k game. Also, 2 key toys that were touted for over a year were removed. If it was selling so well, common sense says it won’t be taken off line after only 4+ months of production (we had major holidays going on during that time as well). We’ll see if they run it again. If the orders are there, you can bet your bottom dollar, they’ll make another run. If not, we know who was full of hype. Lol

I feel like I get a lot for the price. I rather have a packed game with superb build quality than assets I don‘t really care about. But I‘m sure many have a different opinion about this. I‘m sure it‘s not the fastest selling game from JJP, but in the long run it might be more successful than expected. Time will tell.

Quoted from DCFAN:

JJP needs a full-featured version at around $7200 like Stern to get decent volume sales. If they can't ever get their sales numbers up by pricing competitively with other manufacturers then I don't see them surviving. They simply have too much overhead to not necessitate increasing volume.

I heard an interview with Jack a few weeks ago. Jack made it clear that he has no intention to do the same thing as Stern. That doesn't mean what Stern doing is bad or what JJP is doing is better. It just means that they do different things.

Also, I don't see the point of the whole Stern vs JJP argument. I think both companies are a blessing for pinball and therefore good for all of us.
