If the reliability claims are true, I could definitely see a niche for this but they would have to get the cost below 2k. Also, it really, really needed a LCD. It would have given it a totally higher end look and appeal. In fact, this product line could have been their jumping off point for LCD since the simpler ruleset wouldn't have required as much programming.

If the playfields were user swap-able so that you could get a new game every couple years, that would be a selling point.

Quoted from vid1900:

I've played a bunch of WOZ and so far, LCD does nothing at all to improve gameplay (I know, wait until Fall when the game is finished).
I'll take fun gameplay over a bunch of silly animations on a display anyday.

It may do nothing for you personally but I think what matters is the broad consumer perception.
The display technology they used is 40+ years old. Early handheld electronic games in the 70s used it.

I'm also underwhelmed by woz as far as what they're doing with the LCD so far, but one game doesn't break the case for it.
