    Supply is up, but so is demand. I have yet to see any really good deals sit for too long for any pin under like $4000. I HAVE seen evidence of adjustment for a handful of overinflated titles, directly due to the "threat" of remakes, and also because of the increasing supply of brand-new machines in the $7k and up range. I think it's a mistake to judge the hobby as a whole by the prices at the top tier.

    Quoted from Hammerhead1550:

    Christmas weekend I went to the mall to see a movie, and the entire back half of the Sears parking lot was empty (something in years past was unheard of, people use to park on the grass islands in years past).

    this doesn't mean anything. i did all my christmas shopping this year without leaving the house.

    Quoted from nosro:

    This type of explanation also accounts for the difference between Mr. Pinball prices and Boston Pinball (Ebay) prices. It further suggests that "pinflation" is only partly as bad as everyone thinks it is, once prices are adjusted for condition.

    that's a good point - i bet the average 1990s pin is in better shape today than it was 10 years ago!

    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.

    my two games are directly due to The Pinball Arcade on iPad.
