"Ride to Live, Live to Ride." (and get taken for a real ride)
Stern HD (3rd Edition) was by far the worst version HD game ever made mostly due to artwork.
Most people sometimes do not realize there were actually SIX different iteration HD games made in runs/reruns.
One from Bally, one from Sega, and the remaining 2 separate versions (2 runs each) by Stern.
Each version was slightly different, some with different designs, artwork, or translites.
Mechanics and electronics were different between the Sega and Stern versions.
The Bally game was completely different from the Sega and Stern versions and was reminiscent of High Speed in 1991 in design.
This was bar none the best artwork of the lot, gameplay was "meh".
The third edition sales from Stern was incredibly tiny on the both runs totally under 700 machines.
It sold mediocre as a novelty for HD shops in 2004-2005.
It was a closeout in 2006, which is why this game is potentially still in its box.
This was a time of "desperation" by Stern when the pinball drought of the mid 2000s was in full force and they were dusting off old designs to remake for potential sales.
Any game of those runs is still valuable to the right person though at around $3600 in very good condition.
The game new in box sold for $3200 at dealer cost.
Not $7700, which the owner simply pulled the number out of his a$$.
This machine has not doubled its value in 10 years.
Hopefully a non-collector does not get duped and asks someone they know that understands pinball.
