Quoted from GravitaR:

Sterns new ball lock assembly. Two posts and a side rail to hold the initial ball against / which will rest on a switch and can be hit out like a captive ball. A 2nd ball can be hit up to the top of that one and to the left activating a second lock switch. (New cost cutting measure)
[quoted image]

Am I alone in thinking this is pretty brilliant?

I hate to rain on all the negative feedback, but I like watching a company try to target a lower price point. I personally believe the future of pinball is amazing full sized game feel on more portable and cost effective hardware. It is going to take a long time for someone to dial that in, but I'm happy that at least Stern is trying.

Wouldn't it be awesome if we could get the exact same experience from a full sized machine for less than $1000 new? I personally believe it is possible, it is just going to take many different attempts.

To me, the fun of the game is the physics, artwork and code. If you could reproduce that using cardboard and crayons without compromise, I'm in! I say keep going Stern.

Quoted from flynnibus:

Maybe you missed where this effort is nearly 2000 more than sterns last home game effort? It’s not heading in that direction...
Or that this is like their 4th attempt?

I think they are playing with the mechanics of it. This attempt looks more like a commercial pin than the prior ones I have seen...admittedly only in pictures. I'm not saying that their path is correct, I am just excited that people are playing with the parameters around the game. Hell, this game started with tiny wooden boxes and nails...I say any innovation here is good for the community that enjoys pinball.
