How does the CPR announcement affect hardtop going forward? Does this mean games that were run in the past (e.g., Taxi) are no longer fair game?

#100 4 months ago
Quoted from La4s:

They are catered to two different markets, IMO. CPR is $600-700 + a complete playfield swap. Hardtop is $350 without a complete swap. So, i guess it comes down to time and money for each person.

I understand that, but this is Hardtop's current policy from the original post:

Quoted from Skypilot:

If any of the playfield manufacturers( CPR, Mirco, others) are making or planning on making a playfield it is off limits for us.

If a company has already made the playfield it may qualify for a hardtop. Example=Taxi

This policy, however, is no longer relevant because the new CPR model completely does away with the concept of "runs." CPR will presumably begin making Taxi playfields again immediately. Does that mean it is "off limits" to hardtop again? Can HT never produce a title that CPR has run in the past?

#101 4 months ago
Quoted from Skypilot:

No, final approval of titles is decided by Planetary. If a Hardtop has been approved for production and has been made it will always be available.

Ah, gotcha. so basically hard top will just make whatever title planetary approves, regardless of what CPR has done or will do?
