Quoted from pinstyle:
Dialed In is an absolutely fantastic game. No idea how they didn't sell the flippers off this game
The reality is, there are only so many buyers for $9000+ pinball machines.
And overseas, the price is like doubled, so there are even less.
Here in New Zealand, I know of 3x Woz, 3x Hobbits, 1x Dialed In, 0x Pirates. They cost $15,000 by the time they get here.
It’s pretty clear that Pirates didn’t sell. Look at the owners here on Pinside - I think around 250 all up last time I looked. While obviously that’s not all they made, it’s an indication they didn’t sell many of them. The fact they stopped making them while they have 3 years of licence left speaks volumes ...
I wish JJP all the best with everything ... but can’t help but think they need a decent price high volume pin to keep the lines moving and the cash rolling in.
