    Quoted from Hazoff:

    I have to ask, how can an adult man even consider owning this game?

    Because our children can remember the day(s) we took them to the movies to see each release on the big screen, as if it was yesterday, in the same way I can remember what I was doing when Armstrong stepped foot on the moon. Did I like the movies? Not particularly. Except the first one. Do I recognise that it's the best fiction/fantasy theme for well over a century, with dozens of possibilities regarding what could be done on a well designed playfield, given the right rules and excellent coding? I sure do.

    Harry Potter, if it's a decent playing game and layout, would make bucket loads of $$$ for Stern.

    Will I buy one? Probably not.
    Will others buy one? By the truck load!

    Quoted from fisherdaman:

    I love when people are stern bashing on just the very idea of a theme. At least go stern bash on an existing turd like the Beetles.

    That's Beatles!

    Quoted from Luckydogg420:

    Ahhh. I see. Wait until the license isn’t as popular as it is now. Then The license will be cheaper.

    Right! Just like the Beatles license.

    Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

    It’s too soon for a Harry Potter pinball....need to wait about another 25 years until the kid who grew up watching Harry Potter are in their 50s and 60s. Then Stern will make only about 2000 of them and sell them at $50,000 a pop for SLE level games. That’s their business model. See recent games (Beatles, Munsters?, and BM66) as reference. It’s in their long range growth plan.

    So Gary should wait until he's close to 100 years of age before attempting to make money from a HP license, that may or may not be poplar in 2043, when he could make guaranteed money now?
