    Reveal tomorrow

    https://twitter.com/sternpinballinc/status/1245760036422508546?s=19

    Is this the rumored internet connection?

    #2 56 days ago

    Wilm they be playing TNA with those graphics?

    #3 56 days ago

    Could it be? An original title?

    Competitive play via WiFi??

    I keep seeing "Stern Shutdown." Like, we get it already lol

    This is my guess too. And going off recent history, it's probably already built into games + coded but will require a monthly subscription fee or something similar. Honestly though if it is head-to-head online play, it's the absolute perfect time to unveil it.

    #8 56 days ago

    TRON Vault Edition?

    Apparently they already have wifi chips in Spike 2, so this would be super cool.

    I just hope it’s not the 18 person Deadflip stream he has scheduled for tomorrow night.

    Turtles supposedly has this built in.

    But they aren't going to release Turtles yet so wonder how they can show off wi-fi gameplay?

    And yes, what better time to have head to head wi-fi games.

    The time is now Stern!

    Plot twist, Stern is actually a biogenetics company, and dropped the coronavirus in China to deflect away from them...all towards their evil plan to sell TMNT with online play. Think about it. Everyone is stuck at home. No location pinball to play the new game at. What other option do you have but to buy their latest release and still play with all of your friends in the ultimate social-but-not-social playing experience. /sarc for all the crazy conspiracy theorists out there.

    #15 55 days ago

    so when is this release? 8pm?

    Well, that's....underwhelming.

    #20 55 days ago

    #22 55 days ago

    pretty sure this has been done already *coughH2Hcough* #nocoronacough

    #23 55 days ago

    Final Four - Batman 66, Simpsons Pinball Party, Metallica, Deadpool

    #24 55 days ago

    OK so how do we all want to do this? I assume vote the opposite way? Whom do we want in the final 4? Avengers, WWE, ...?

    "Stern Letdown"

    #31 55 days ago
    Quoted from Ricochet:

    "Stern Letdown"

    The funny thing is, it’s us that hype this up to be bigger :-p we let ourselves down

    #32 55 days ago

    sigh.....

    Quoted from northvibe:

    It is funny... but given the current state of the world... I mean it's a safe thing to do.

    #34 55 days ago

    If we all band together I'm pretty sure we can have WWE claim the title

    I was not expecting a new game, but a feature on spike for online play. So while this was a safe marketing post, the hype for something new was huge because of us pinball obsessedbut I still wish it was a new feature :-p

    Spider-Man playfield used as a background picture of the brackets , so I guess that means there is big news coming soon about Spider-Man .

    I have no Facebook, no twitter, then...

    #39 55 days ago

    Boy, they sure stacked the deck for some of those games. Pretty clear we know whom they want to progress through rounds. I would have hoped they seeded games by random draw but no way JP gets WWE, Deadpool gets AV, AC/DC gets TF, LOTR gets Mustang in first rounds via a random draw.

    The only match-up I would be curious about (if people didn't game the system) would be Tron Vs Deadpool and LOTR vs BM66, based off that bracket.

    Quoted from TheLaw:

    Munsters and... First bracket is tough for me to pick a turd. I'd say FG is my least fav of the bunch but I don't dislike it.

    #41 55 days ago

    LOTR vs TWD
    ACDC vs SPIDERMAN
    JP vs MET
    DEADPOOL vs IRON MAIDEN ( I guess as I never played them)

    Better than a reveal, this is a real knockout to JJP and others.

    #45 55 days ago

    So excited.

    Jeeze guys...they are just trying to give us something amusing to do. They never promised an earth shattering announcement or reveal. I appreciate their attempt to stay connected and entertain us while unable to produce. They OWE us absolutely nothing.

    Some things need a teaser. Some things just need to happen. This does not rise to the level of teasing.

    I think being disappointed that the teaser bar has been lowered is reasonable. Not the same as being negative, IMO.

    #49 55 days ago

    Yeah, I definitely agree that this did not need a teaser. But it's a perfectly fine thing for stern to do, especially now with everyone stuck at home.

    Anyway, here's how I'd see this showdown going.
