Ok, I'm kind of confused, are people paid in full for these game or do you just have a deposit of like $1-$2k? $17k for MG seems RIDICULOUS especially if you're required to pay this far in advance... As for those with some skin in this, have you actually shelled out $17k for a game you've been waiting months for? Or are you $1-$2k in and waiting for the final product before paying in full? Jpop has done some fine things during his career but he's still just a man making pinball machines... What's the deal?

The problem with producing only 50 machines is two fold IMO... 1) 50 machines all in the homes of avid collectors will do nothing to attract buyers outside the small circle of die hard pin fans who are already invested in this if they have the money, so where will this future market of potential buyers willing to spend $17k+ on a single machine come from? 2) $17k x 50 = $850k, and there is no way these machines can be built with the level of specificity the designs call for without taking a huge loss. Even if we discount all the labor costs involved, the lawyer fees (to file patents and whatnot) and cost of materials will overwhelm this budget. The company will start taking money out of investments made for future machines, and you'll effectively have a Ponzi scheme. It's ok to take a loss on some products, particularly as a fledgling company, but you need to start generating income quicker than this company seems able to or you run into serious issues.

Quoted from ChrisVW:

Since we are now 7 days away from the big reveal here's my predictions:
15% chance - Game revealed to everyone, pinball news picks up the story, the game looks fantastic and everyone is excited.
40% chance - Game revealed to owners only. Reminders of NDA still in effect and general disappointment because owners can't talk and the community can't see. No ship estimates provided to owners.
30% chance - December 17th comes and goes with no reveal. Owners blow up the forums and get no response for days. If response does occur, questions are not answered.
15% chance - Game revealed to either owners or everyone, but nothing really shown. Game not turned on, pics taken from 30' and blurry or strategically cropped, etc...
What do you guys think will happen on December 17th?

95% chance the company goes belly up, is forced to sell the rights to this and other games out of financial necessity, and PPS fulfills all initial orders as part of their first run of 1000 LE MG's a few years from now
