Why can't we all just wait for the date and end the shitstorm of speculation, rumor and bullshit?

Quoted from dmesserly:

His comment is that they will be heroes if AP makes games for MG owners is poor journalism to say the least.

If they end up making games for everybody (I'm sure most have written this all off by now and never expected anything more) why would they NOT be heroes? I think we just need to see how it all plays out. Step one: Let's see if MG is delivered to anyone. Then, Step two.

I knew a girl like that once!

Sorry, no. Been there a few times, but it was only movie related.

Quoted from Aurich:

I'm just struggling with the logic here. It's not a slam on a new company, this is purely about how big of a hole Jpop dug, and how hard it is to suddenly magically climb out of it.

Whatever it is....they seem to be trying. People had nothing before, nor the hope of anything. If they get something, it would be great. Maybe a Houdini in place of something that they could keep or sell and make some money back.
Something is better than nothing and I say until proven otherwise, let's give AP the benefit of the doubt.

I bet you could get one made from bannersusa.com

Or...

I still say they should forget about all the other machines. Offer everyone either a Magic Girl, Houdini or their money back.

Quoted from beatmaster:

hope everyone who had money in MG get something in the end.

They just might!

Quoted from toyotaboy:

My hope is that they survive and the many homebrew projects floating around can finally get mass produced if the designers choose to do so

Such as Forbidden Planet!

Quoted from emkay:

I sure hope one of these is at Allentown this year, looks fantastic!

It does! It was going to be between Elvira 3 and AFMr, but now Houdini is in the running. I hope it will be at Allentown as well….
