They should cut additional costs elsewhere and pay the extra $?.?? per machine to go back to whatever pinball companies did for decades to keep this ghosting problem from showing up so quickly and widely. I mean, surely someone actually does know what was changed that created this situation and what would have to be done to go back to the way things were, right? Purely strategically, cut corners elsewhere so problems show up down the road instead of early on and so obviously.
Or maybe this is all just a clever prelude to the introduction of an amazing new optional Super Stern Inserts upgrade (a la their clearer glass) which you can add to your order for an extra $500 or whatever.
