There is plenty of room for guys like AP and especially Deeproot to come in and start picking off meaningful chunks of Stern market share.
AP is doing it the right way. Oktoberfest may not be a hugely popular theme but it’s a kick ass FUN deep mode based game that will only get better and they put the consumer first
Can you imagine if someone like DR can come along with all of its coders and graphics people and create a pinball experience that GROWS with each pin over time?
In other words, I buy their pins and we know we will get the Lyman treatment x 2
Maybe updates and new challenges every year
The old Stern model of “hey GB and Munsters sold really well so we don’t have to worry about making the experience better”.....
If DR or anybody can change that old model, I’m in and I suspect many others will be as well
For HUO these are expensive toys that the manufacturer should think about ways to extend the long term experience versus same old same old
