    DA-YUM. This explains a lot - seems like more titles are being created, and the code updates.. they must also be wanting to stay on top since JJP is knocking it out of the park lately, and the AP titles are awesome as well. Funny to think after the Zidware and Heighway debacles (and DP) that things have turned around big time. You can't fault Gary for having a bad business plan, he managed to make it last through the early 2000s, and we all have to thank him for that.!

    Quoted from DBLM:

    Found this picture of Stern’s development team.

    I legit love this. If the 4 Horsemen designed a pinball machine, it would be a giant picture of the smilin', stylin, limo-drivin' Ric Flair, Barry Windham looking bewildered until he saw the buyer and gave him a HUGE clothesline; Arn Anderson carrying the cabinet on his back, and Tully Blanchard cowering in the corner until he could get a swift kick in for not buying Stern!

    Quoted from epthegeek:

    You can't import complete pins into brazil, you have to build them there. They just built that assembly plant so they could sell in brazil.

    You can import them, but it's INCREDIBLY expensive. Stern must have done the math, and (seems unbelievable!) it's less expensive to build them there. The QA training alone of starting up something like that new, and a potential language barrier would give me nightmares.

    Quoted from Zablon:

    I find it extremely interesting that pin sales are high enough there to justify a plant. That's actually pretty cool. Or is it more about the exports?

    Exports are not tariffed in Brazil, so perhaps they are planning on that being a distribution point for South America and Europe (?)
