    Quoted from pinballkyle:

    Yeah Stern didn’t develop all these operator tools out of the kindness of their hearts, it was probably a very expensive software build, when they do start charging subscriptions, it’s a huge money making opportunity for them.
    Someone is going to have to pay the fees, it’s hard enough to make money on pinballs that cost as much as they do now, I do see price increases to play at a location happening due to this.

    I think you have it wrong, it'll be the player base They will try to charge.

    See, they already have the premium Stern Insider subscription model. So the waters have already been tested. They'll have a premium tier service that customers can buy, and a free option with less features. Similar to something like Xbox live. They might charge operators for promotions and things of that nature, but that is a small piece of the puzzle. Getting Stern pinball fans to subscribe to the premium service is where the real money will be, not the operators. They NEED the operators to use their new platform. And operators won't if they're charged.

    Quoted from thechakapakuni:

    So you’re hoping for something that hasn’t been announced as part of this feature?

    I'm not hoping for this. I just expect it. Personally, I would prefer if there wasn't any subscription model at all.

    Gomez clearly was looking at Xbox Live and PS Network when pitching this idea. A subscription model for users is much more likely than one for owners.
