*I* don't want *any* of those games in a finals...much less in qualifying. They're all incomplete and nobody knows the full rule sets other than the guys that programmed them? So what? I don't think new release games should be used in tournaments at all until they've been in the hands of owners for at least a few months.
Stern is not going to have any say over what brand of games get used. Only TDs are going to have that power, or the circuit events will be a failure. Most "pro" players are pretty sick of Sternaments as it is..
