Quoted from Concretehardt:

Well the question wasn't MMr or 20 year old routed beater. The Original is 18 years old, but many out there (mine included) have been restored and are better than new.
By the way your 97 out of 100 sounds like bullshit! 97 out of 100 would prefer to actually have their game now, not pay for it and wait more than a year with countless delays and excuses.
So let's recap....
97/100= bullshit
MMr platform is yet to prove itself (let's talk after these games have been on route for 5+ years)
Original has optional color DMD with no screen tearing
My Playfield art is actually centered
My game actually exsists and is in my game room
The original comes with coin mechs

and some are un-restored and as good as new.

Really dude a your momma joke? I have no doubt MMr will be a great game, no need to drag Mom's into this argument.

I personally think you have to go with the original, but I am in this game for the nostalgia....warts and all. I kind of like the idea that a game is actually from the era that I played it (shit in fantasy I could have actually have played this very game at some stage in some dive, or at least folks just like me in the same situation did) For me that is a big part of it. That being said if you don't want to be that picky and you want a great game from your child/teenage hood that isn't going to brake down every five minuets this MMR might be for you. Personally I dont mind it when my great old games break down and I have to fix them..... Makes me feel like someone cares about our time, even if its just us geeks.

Wow you guys are acting like 5 year olds. If someone wants to get an MMr, let them get an MMr and if someone likes an original, let them get /keep an original. Who cares as long as everyone is happy with their decision, but bad mouthing the other just isn't cool.

Quoted from o-din:

I see the point you are trying to make there, however that would make every pinball machine that has ever been made that is out of production an LE. Point I was making is that MMRLE may not even sell 1000 units, so there may end up being very few or no standard units at all.

all 1000 are already sold to distributors - there may be a few that aren't pre-sold to customers before they're built, but there's no chance they won't make the full 1000.

also rarity is not the primary driver of collectibility or value. look at The Addams Family for example -- over 20,000 of them made and it's still a very expensive game, far more desirable than many games that are far more rare.

also a thousand games really isn't all that many - even if only half of all TAFs are still out there, there will still be ten times as many TAFs as MMRLEs.
