I got to be honest. I think Star Gazer is the only one worth picking up. Great to play and art work is great!
I think 9-ball is the best player of the bunch. I would probably take meteor over QS and seawitch; would def take Stars over all of them.
Quoted from DaveH:
The problem is, not enough people would. After the first 10 copies sold like hotcakes, there would be a huge group looking at it and saying "What, for that?". Most people just wouldn't appreciate it. So just because I want a Stargazer, doesn't mean there is enough demand to remake it.
Fortunately a couple of my friends own it, so I get to play it from time to time. Not the same as having it in my house, but at least I get to visit them.
how many games does Stern realistically need to sell in order for it to be worth it?
Looking back at recent past titles I estimate that if they can sell 500 in total then the game average, 1000 in total and it is above average, 2000 and it is great!
If Stern made a modern Stargazer PRO model for 5300 they could sell 500 of them. Make a LE (updated art) to go along with it and I bet you sell another 500
Quoted from TheLaw:
That's a tuffy right there
yeah, but I bet there would be a whole segment of the typical LE buyers that would buy it just because it is LE and has new art...
I wonder if Gerry Simkus (original artist is still around and wants to make some new/updated art)? could be cool
Quoted from rollitover:
...for an exact replica?
Or would you expect an updated,
new and improved version?
Sorry OP for the brief diversion.
I would happily pay 5300 for an exact replica.
I would pay premium prices for an updated version with equally good art, new LCD display and graphics, etc... I would of course want to be able to run "classic" mode on that updated version.
your QS is the only one I have played (at least for one that actually plays well). I have always been curious, are the flippers intended to have as much travel as they do? They go further than any other game (even the always trap GTB premiers).
