Apologies if this has already been posted - I'm hoping someone can copy and paste in last week's communication sent out from JPop. It's difficult to find when sorting through over 11,000 postings (I did start at the end and worked backward, but that still doesn't make this a slam dunk to find).

thank you!

That thread seems to have broken Pinside's direct linking, but it starts about halfway down that page.

Thanks for posting this link. I it was all buried in long threads I didn't want to dig through.

So the only upside of the last 3 clusters is that the pre-order model of pinball payment is dead. Manufacturers will now need to bring functioning production class machines to the table before the money starts.

Predator existed. tons of people played it.

Also, MMR is basically a success.

Pre-order is obviously not dead, as of this weekend you can preorder Magic Girl Pro!

Yeah, I remember seeing a Predator at Louisville 2 years ago. It wasn't working at the time, but I did indeed see it, red skull with spine and all!

Agreed on MMR.

As for JPop stuff, read that post and let it sink it. Also listen to Nate's C2C podcast for a verbal discussion on it. I am curious if someone is going to come forward and alter the terms, because as it stands, nobody is going to sign that. Or at least nobody SHOULD sign it.

In all fairness, my show (167) was on the heels of the first letter sent out by John. A lot of new information is out now, as Pintasia has revealed themselves and altered the offer to the JPOP customers.

Will follow up as soon as I have a chance.

REALLY looking forward to your summary of latest events. Makes it a lot easier for those not involved (like myself) to swallow what's going on.

I just watch and listen to everything that is going on with jpop. I have no ties to any of the games. I just want to play them as im sure everybody else that put orders down. I hope he can dig himself out of this one. He's great designer and I hate to see him go down this way. But the best to luck to everybody involved

yeah good luck with that!! probably more than 3000 replies since.

funny right after your show i went to the JPOP thread and it was already much different.

Maybe you should have the new snake charmer on and clear everything up. or would that ruin your good name as well.

TOXIC!!
