What would happen if pinball manufacturers (Stern, JJP etc..) dropped the price of their pins by $1K? (I'm just using this number as a loose figure here) Wouldn't that stop the price madness of the used market? and get more people to buy their new product? Or are their still too many people buying on a whim? Pinball is on a high right now wouldn't it be smarter for companies to cash in on the money train and get more people addicted to pinball than to be satisfied with crumbs... EX: STTNG sold over 11k machines...VS the new Star Trek that will maybe sell 2000, smaller profits but on a larger scale bigger returns....Overnight people with used machines couldn't ask obscene amounts of money for them... yes, no maybe? Am I talking out of my ass here?
