I doubt we'll see much video of gameplay. Has anybody even made a ramp shot? Maybe playing with the glass off will be the way to play this pin. This isn't even about that i don't think.
Has Jpop met the minimum requirements to stay out of jail? Deliver some games. And then say, "I'm on to Raza next".
The buyers of this pin and Raza and AIW did so expecting we would have a great new Jpop original from a guy that just wanted "to make great pinball" and "innovate in ways never seen before". And a pin that would be an awesome playing experience.
What's left is really none of that. Just the stay out jail effort.
But then people don't really buy BBB because its a great pinball machine. They mostly buy it as a "collector". People are afraid to play because they might put a dimple on it. How many BBB's do you always see for sale, "low plays", "less than 200", etc.?
MG will trade hands between "collectors" for whatever they think its worth. Playing the pin will have little to zero impact on it. Because nobody actually will.
Cointaker is smart to take advantage of selling MG as soon as the box hit their warehouse. The hype will never be greater than it is today.
Once Jpop finally fails with Raza and Aiw and Zidware fades into bankruptcy, time will erode the appeal of the moment. Although it will never be forgotten and certainly some people will just want to own a piece of pinball history.
