Quoted from Yelobird:
I am fairly confident this game will not see a production again but it is More then obvious IF there was an option or run this would sell. Any title (like this one) with want adds 20-1 over for sale adds HAS a market interest. Any title selling a year past production for a Profit HAS a market interest. Any left in the world are being shipped and sold at Crazy markup because there Is an obvious interest. Not a JJP fanboy but let’s be honest this would more then likely be the Last game most of us would part with. Just an opinion.
I'm not saying there's not interest, but a market, of desire for 200 or more games? I doubt that. We're all the same people, give or take, in this thread the last year or so, fluffing the game up, over and over again.
Profit margin supposedly so small. Licensing issues from hell. Johnny Depp's career deleted due to wacky partner shit. Massive playfield blowback from customers. Possible pain on the line for workers. Saga of the game being culled back a bit feature wise.
So why on earth would Jack, and investors, want to dip back into that madness? For a small profit on each machine, for a run how large?
Hobbit kept being produced due to parts excess. This isn't the case here. WoZ keeps getting produced because it's a rare modern evergreen title that's highly accessible and well loved, IP wise.
I'd love POTC to get more recognition. Hands down my favorite game from the past two release years. But us adoring this game, Eric, Keith, J.P., David Thiel, and everyone's hard work, won't resurrect this.....
Why'd you sell yours? That was this past summer, if I remember correctly.
Quoted from vireland:
Yep, a 25% appreciation in price on USED machines over NIB retail in just the FIRST year of the machine's existence in is very telling of demand. It's nowhere close to being met, and if Jack put a couple on tour of the pinball shows in 2020 he could easily have orders for 1000 more to start.
I dunno man. This game had a 1000 game run to begin with, and it took hype from this thread, and the month after month rumor for it to sell out, months into summer.
I can't even fathom this selling another 1000 games. It certainly deserves to.
A markup for a few games bought, by overzealous FOMO induced fans, doesn't equate to 1000 immediate sales.
