Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:
As I already explained in previous posts.
The game concept is real based on a developed design based on my industry contacts.
I was aware of prototyping.
I did not realize that samples had been completed, nor a a plan for an early reveal.
This is not a Kaneda troll post, so I am not sure why people keeping believing it is such only because the original poster is the person people dislike.
I don't like the anyone should have the need to use duplicate accounts, but the information still had value.
In the history of pinball, this is not the first time manufacturers have pulled a "hat trick", nor a surprise at an Expo.
AP is a new player in town that could upset what Stern thought was a industry monopoly for the current Expo.
I welcome the competition, as this will moderate pricing even if only for a short while, especially if the gameplay is solid, regardless of hard feelings towards the designer.
This hobby has a very short memory of the past, that some say is "not relevant", which is false.
If money can be generated, things will progress.
Memory is not so short to remember you disembowling Kaneda here on Pinside only to get right back into bed with him...
The past of this industry is the past... it's a home consumer market. Stern is proving that with their GB playfield "program".... Batman66 available models and pricing... not to mention all of the other manufacturers that are catering to the collector market.
Don't get me wrong, the history of pinball (when relayed and told without constantly pointing out what idiots modern collectors are) is fascinating and fun. But, it's a brand new day now. That's a fact.
