Quoted from PopBumperPete:

Yes, the OP has a right to feel cheated
But after 3 days crying, either cancel your MM order or buy a coin mech

you are not keeping up.

our deposits were frozen. If we cancel our orders with JJP, we lose our deposit.

what item is the last item we won't stand for? What is next?

1,000 coin mechs, at $20 bucks each, is $20K revenue.

Here is another solution. Lower the price by the price of the mechs, plus worldwide shipping.
Wait, that would cost PPS/Chicago-coin money. Where is the money going they are not spending?

you are right. This issue, in this thread is about trust.

I was never informed in advance, when the deposit would be frozen.
I was never 'given notice'

JJP has my e-mail, my phone number, and my order number.

Quoted from PPS:

Refund Policy for LE's was:
- Deposit is refundable before WMS Approval (moving us into production) on the game - this was stated to be expected by end of the year, hopefully sooner - production wants/needs to know 'firm' orders to know how many to produce. We will give notice that this happened and then I expect we expect to have any cancellations within a small number of days which we will specify.

I agree. This thread should be about trust. PPS and JJP are losing my trust.

This is the first time I am hearing that money is due beyond the deposit. Thank you for announcing this, because both PPS and my JJP the distributor have not informed me. They have my e-mail address, and phone number.

So, now the full payments are due?

"A: ... .The customer is then reponsible to pay the balance due to the distributor for the game,1-2 weeks before the game is ready to ship."

I never received advance notice of the deposits being locked.

Quoted from PPS:

As we also said we will give people advance notice of the deposits being 'locked down' (for lack of a better word). ... lol

if you have the time, listen to all the plans from the original pitch.


spot how many plans have changed since then.

Quoted from indypinhead:

JJP required payment in full just over a month ago.
I made my payment on 7/4

how were you informed? they have not contacted me.

is your game due within 2 weeks/

Does anyone here know, if there are other distributors asking for money beyond the original deposit?

There are 17 resellers listed on the PPS website.
