    Have a great day.

    Quoted from iamabearsfan:

    If I was them I would control costs and own the mid-market. Let JJP and DP take the high-end market. I think they are leaving money on the table by going up market.

    And Stern has analysed the market and they have come to a different conclusion. It's just that simple. Every company looks at their market and makes decisions based on the conclusions they reach. In this case Stern has decided that a higher price with lower volume is the best way to make more profit.

    Quoted from shacklersrevenge:

    They're not being fair to their customer base that bailed them out by constantly stripping and raising the costs.

    You were expecting Unicorns and Show Ponies? They don't owe us anything but supporting what we have purchased. The Stern games in my gameroom don't buy me shit as far as future releases go.

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Needs a real skill shot. Do or die multi ball needs to be made somewhat attainable. Needs work on the multi ball. Just minor stuff but it needs it.

    I love my IM. I probably play it the most out of all my games. But I can't imagine Stern taking the time to crack it open and update it. From a business perspective updating that might make 20 people that care happier, and would piss off WAY more than that who are rightfully bitching about things like cities in KISS. Updating IM would make other customers even madder. That is the bigger impediment.

    Winter is coming.....

    Winter isn't coming. That's just Stern screwing with the thermostat. Eventually enough of us will open the window and realize it's a beautiful day.

    This thread has been beyond stupid for a week but I think it's finally reached the point of draining.

    Thanks for letting us know your limits. It makes the thread less stupid.

    Quoted from robotron:

    they are selling every pin they can build. seems all their issues and crappy code not affecting their bottom line.

    For now. At some point it will catch up to them. Eventually they will ramp up to full production in the new factory, and then we will see.
