Quoted from frolic:

I think jpop is way too paranoid to let Stern anywhere near his game.

And on the flip side I don't think Stern wants anything to do with JPop. There's a reason he hasn't been contracted to design a game for them despite living in close proximity...

Quoted from vid1900:

Even if Stern feels that Jpop is too flaky and slow to hire as a designer, they can still take his parts and build his machines.

It's not as simple as just taking parts and building machines.... If that were the case MMR would have been built a year ago. If JPop was flaky and slow as a designer I'd be willing to bet he'd be flaky and slow as a project manager. Stern would still need someone to do the kind of work that PPS and CC is doing to get a new game/platform on the line. I have a feeling JPop would take a year just designing the artwork for the box that the game shipped in. Stern wouldn't put up with that!

Quoted from whitey:

Let me get this right ? 19 games total, all the time invested in this and not put it in production seems lIke a waste

I'm thinking out loud here but say the 19 games get built and they go to their rightful owners. What are the chances that the software is going to be anywhere close to complete? I know I heard something about the potential for "Open Source" code but even so with only 19 games and probably a good number of those not being opened for "investment" reasons there isn't a large enough base or availability for open source to work on such a small game run. I'm sure the game would be valuable from a collector standpoint and beautiful to look at but will it be any fun to play?
