I know, that was mean.

Regardless of what the price may be or worries of QC concerns, would you buy a Pirates if they became available again and you could secure your place with a Refundable deposit. And let’s also say you had a year to figure out how to pay for it.

Jjp is not going backwards and only moving fwd with new pins. Most of the older titles stock is dwindling and about bought up . They will be busy making [email protected] orders till the next title is released and that most likely will also b a huge hit . They sld be pretty busy moving fwd and have no reason to look back.....so if you want any of the older titles best to get them sooner than later if you can even find them.

Um, Well that sounds like an answer to a question that nobody asked. At least not in this thread.

100% I would buy one. I cannot find one any where and when they come up they are crazy pricing as the owners know they are not making any more. Dream machine of mine.

True.... just posting the reality of the situation tho. There's a bunch of threads like this one asking the same question over the past year or two.

Yes, but only if the machine remained as original LE/CE with no strippage of features!

I would buy one for sure. Was chatting with another collector yesterday about this. His opinion , which I agreed with, was Jjp will be busy for at least a year with gnr and then super busy again with toy story, so if they do run Potc it won’t be for quite a while.

You've got to think that game was a disaster for JJP. It took FOREVER to get out the door, had a bunch of poorly-conceived and pointless mechs (who gives a shit if the spinner isn't actually three spinners?) that were expensive failures, and even after the game was "finished" it seemed to be a headache for many owners.

I know the game is suddenly super expensive now due to reverse-FOMO, but still, I'd guess it would take more than a handful of would-be depositors to get this one back on the line again. THey seem to have their hands full producing a game that actually works, that people actually want, and that they can actually make a profit with, so why not just let them do that? Clearly, POTC wasn't in line with the company purpose of "staying in business" so not sure why people think they'd want to go back to that at this point.

Try your poll with less theory. Would you buy one on a re-release for 12.5 same as LE previous. I suspect based on the Crazy numbers it’s pulling for used they could easily sell a few hundred. Just my opinion.

They are asking crazy numbers but r they getting them. Its a fine game but I just don't see buying a used one for anymore than OG value.

Yes I would be in, but it would be nice if they would remove Jonny Depp’s face from the playfield.

I'd love no pictures of people what so ever. Its such a nice looking PF that's gets ruined with actors faces.

Makes no sense to rerun. They would have to hire new people and start another line for what a few hundred games .
Gnr will be made for a while then other games in the lineup which they can sell thousands.
