    Quoted from orangestorm87:

    Have they stated the 7 games that are included at launch?

    Well they stated any game produced after the September launch. So anything that going to get a run yet. JPloof has some good guesses, but I would sub zepplin for Iron Maiden (since the video shows it on zepplin).

    Its an "inexpensive" upgrade if you don't have it. Wonder what they consider inexpensive....

    Quoted from joetechbob:

    He just means that it seems bass ackwards, as the phone/app could've been the QR scanner instead of the game. I'm sure they have their reasons, but on the surface it seems to make the solution a lot more complex and expensive.

    What if they dont have a phone? (believe it or not, some people dont or at least dont have smart phones. I work in IT at a college and when we tried to roll out 2FA it was crazy how many dont). Now all you have to do is log in to a computer and print off a QR code. Seems like a good decision to me. This way nobody is excluded.

    Quoted from BMore-Pinball:

    The subsection of pinball playing people that don't own smart phones is so small it's not worth worrying about at all

    LOL...You guys are all funny. Take a step back from your high horses and look at the population. Not everyone is a 40 year old dude playing a pin in their home. There are a lot of people on location that play because they cant afford to own one, don't have room, etc. There are also a lot of old people, kids, etc that play and don't have smart phones. Saying that people who don't have a smart phone don't care is ridiculous. Like having a smart phone is what defines if you care? HUH? What if there is a tournament and they can piggy back off this? What if there is some other feature that is killer or needed for something. You guys are very short sighted on what can be done or what this could be possibly used for. Why not design something that works for every single person instead of just most people? Sorry it costs $50 extra to be fully inclusive

    Quoted from BallyKISS1978:

    Because some of us don’t like or want this doesn’t mean we are on a high horse. You made a huge assumption. I could care less about this add on. I play with my family and don’t need to be connected to other players and compete.
    It should be an add on option because there are many who won’t use it and there are people who will. Plus you will have to pay extra to use the service like Microsoft charges for Xbox live.
    So not on any high horse or nor am I rich. I just don’t care about this and don’t need WiFi in a pinball game. Why people like you feel the need to insult people because you disagree with them is beyond me.

    Then don't use it. There is nobody with a gun forcing you to. But when faced with the choice to put out a product that 100% of the population can use, vs some subset, its dumb to think you wouldn't chose 100%, that would just be a bad business decision.
