    personally, I don't get the big deal with the pegs. I have games with and without them and really can't say it's ever been something that's come even close to upsetting me. The pegs and rails both do the same thing really. At first I fell for all the whining about lockdown clamps too, then I got a pro with them and they are actually better. The lockdown bar sits much more solid than before, the physical action of popping a couple clamps to lift a lock bar off is again nothing to stress about. It takes much more effort to actually remove the glass than it does to pop two stupid clamps.

    Lots of people point out the 'cost of goods' for spike like it's pennies. the board might be cheaper, anyone care to take a wild guess on the development costs of it? The cost of electronics isn't solely the chips and pcb, you have to spread out the cost of designing it, testing it, new dev environments, devs with a different skill set etc etc. Think bigger than a simple nut bolt or screw. Would a painter paint your house for the cost of the paint? of course not, he has a vehicle, paintbrushes, ladders etc to pay for too in addition to himself to eat.
