    Also voted with wallet. Heck, they can't even finish KISS code.

    Bought a mint AFM instead of a Stern premium.

    Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

    It does not have a REAL backglass either based on the feature listing.
    (Subject to further Stern change or reduction of features at anytime)
    Actual backglasses make games valuable, for their art factor alone.
    More important than equivalent PDI glass.
    I bet most people did not even catch this change.
    - SLE gets all 3 translites (SLE)
    - SLE unique translite and cabinet art by Christopher Franchi (SLE)
    - LE unique translite and cabinet art by Christopher Franchi (LE)
    - Premium unique translite and cabinet art by Christopher Franchi (Prem)
    Basically, owners get three pieces of plastic instead of a proper mirrored and detailed backglass.
    Just another reason not to be impressed, based on cost reductions.
    Remember this game was supposed to be their "30th Anniversary Special" game but it ships with no real backglass?
    New owners now do not even realize the true differences.
    It like watery Prego, it's in there, but it does not always taste good.

    Quite staggering that people are paying these prices for a cheap plastic translite.

    If you really are celebrating 30 years of pinball, a real backglass honors pinball history more than anything else.

    Wow, $15000 and no backglass.

    If Stern can get away not doing a backglass, they will and they do.

    Only way to get them to do a nice backglass is if it hurts sales NOT to do it.....

    And yes, a real backglass, especially mirrored is night and day better than a plastic translite.

    Quoted from 27dnast:

    Aside from a lame skill shot, what could possibly done to IM?

    Easier to get an extra ball.

    Make Do or Die Multiball attainable for more than just a handful of people on the planet!

    Quoted from 27dnast:

    You can go into the settings and set replay to trip an extra ball... and can't you also change DOD to carry over from ball to ball?
    DOD is one of the beauties of that game... feels great when you get to it largely because it's so difficult!

    Are you sure you mean DOD multiball? DOD mode is much easier and is perfect.

    Quoted from taylor34:

    I'll believe this thread when I actually see it happen. Stern has:
    taken a game from 2007, added $3k to the price it was selling for back then, and people still bought it
    took full featured games and start selling them for $2k more (premiums)
    taken years to finish the code on almost every game
    had quality and cheapening issues
    Yet people just line up to buy over and over. People say they're not going to buy anymore but tons of people in this thread have Ghostbusters when all of these issues have been going on for 5+ years. I don't believe that people aren't going to keep buying when Star Wars comes out...unfinished code, high priced, more cost cutting, etc won't matter, IT'S STAR WARS!!!! MUST HAVE NOW!!!!

    It's true!
    I have bought 3 NIB Stern but I really don't believe I will buy another. QC down, prices up, just doesn't give me that 'gotta have it' feeling anymore.
    Will still buy Stern but nice HUO at 20 - 30% lower than the NIB price.
