Quoted from pinsanity:
Williams always used to tout that 3k units per title was breakeven point.
then how do boutiques stay in business selling perhaps only 500?
that remains a fact. at least for the original.
same game when lit with an LED worklight.
Quoted from Hazoff:
its pretty much the same people buying these pins over and over again, will it deter u from a purchase with a late or early reveal? its happening so who cares?
well, if the start of production on some titles continues to end up being one year after the games reveal, then people might start caring.
as stated, the photos are of an original; not a remake. this particular machine is located at the museum of pinball and no one in their right mind would consider it sufficiently lit. the point to take away is this - with additional lighting you can see the playfield a whole lot better.
Quoted from DJNOEL30:
I have constantly got sucked in by hype with nothing ever done on time, shit communication via distributor or manufacture and a slow drip when it comes to code improvements. That's why I went with MBr because the wait is reasonable and I know out of the gate I'm not going to have any code issues with a game that is already completed. My last hype roller coaster will be ACNC #97 after that comes in I am done riding hype trains. I've managed to accumulate just enough knowledge of this hobby to be dangerous to myself and I am going to wait on future releases until I am satisfied with the game being as completed as possible before making a purchase.
nice to know that what some believed was my 'trolling' of spooky in the ACNC production thread will be vindicated as more 'customers' finally start waking up, refusing to be taken advantage of in the future. having witnessed this gentleman frustrations in said thread, he has laid things out here quite eloquently.
and who was at the controls of that 'hype rollercoaster'?
it was the same guy who received ACNC#2 late summer, routed it for only 300 plays over 3 months, and then sold it mid november. hes already sold one physical game, before nearly 500 others have yet to even receive theirs. the same guy who made fun of me when i mentioned the number of customers who happened to be selling their spots in line for any number of reasons - and hes already joined them by selling his early 'production' game. all of his hype. all of his speculation. little of it has come true. but he sure knew how to 'report' and quash the one person who was the consumers advocate.

would you guys feel any better knowing that i could have chosen 'tuesday', just as 'weld' ?
i didnt realize the use of 'lite' was so popular in pinball, so i went back in time to see if i may have been missing anything over the years.
