    I think it has more to do with technology than we think...Pinflation coincided with the introduction of the Ipad. A lot of new people came into the hobby due to the pinball app, now the pad market is reached a plateau along with a glut of new games coming into the market demand has dampened a bit. I bet it there is a quite a bit more to go before it bottoms out and that the fall will accelerate after Hobbit and MMR hit the market, of course this all just speculations.

    Quoted from wayout440:

    To me this is like saying a whole bunch of folks bought real guns because of shooting games. Anyway, that's my speculation/guess - I don't think there is enough evidence to support any increase in pinball sales because of some Ipad apps.

    I'm not sure that analogy works the same, at least for me...I mean angry birds didn't make me go out and buy a parrot, but playing virtual pinball just led to seeking out real pinball, same as two other pinball aficionados in my pinball group.
