Quoted from CrazyLevi:

You have to be joking.
STTNG is as big as a Jaguar and requires even more maintenance. There's a huge potential market for people who want a reliable brand new game that doesn't dwarf their fridge, rather than a 25 year old problem child...not everybody wants to deal with craigslist and used games or the increasingly shady secondary pinball market. This all goes without saying, and we have this conversation every time a home pin comes out.
The problem has been the games and the value, not the concept. There's room on the market for a quality $4,000 game, now that the cheapest pro game is $5500. That's a big difference in price and a lot of money for a consumer to save who doesn't mind that it isn't STTNG.

Are you suggesting, that this thing Will be less problems, than a 25 years old well Kept Williams machine?

The problem i see with this thing is that for most people 4k is still serious money and with that comes serious investigation on what to buy for that money?
I dont think many Will end up in the conclusion, this is their best option.

Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

Shit, I own a pro and this looks cool. So did the SM home version. Clearly, pinheads want more, but if some random dude wants to buy this for their man cave, what’s wrong with that?

How many Do you know, WHO has a man cave, that wants to clad it, with cheapest possible man-toys?

IF they want to make man-cave versions, they should consider extra everything, maybe only saving money on the coinmechanism, but ofc with a more luxorious door.

Quoted from Stuieb84:

Agreed. Home pins aren't the market segment for the more hardcore enthusiast on pinside. If it achieves the goal of getting more people interested in pinball, then it isn't a bad thing

If you want people to get interested in boating, you dont take em out on the sea in a rowing boat that sinks after fifteen minutes.

Quoted from Matesamo:

But you also sell lower cost Cuddy Cabins and Bowriders so they can work their way up to the Motor Yachts.

Ok. A valid point if the youngsters, you were to engage allready liked pinball. Most are just not interested. First you gotta wake their interest.
I dont think a subpar product will do that, and young people arent going to buy an anemic marginal fun pin at 4k.

If pinball manufacturers really want to get young people into pinball and make them popular again, they would let keith elwin produce a stern pin with jjp toys and theme integration.
With up to date themes, as avicii, rihanna and imagine dragons. Maybe a pin with overwatch, world of warcraft or pixar/disneys coco.

Then you put them up on youth centers and cafeterias near schools with reduced price to play and the abilities to win free lunch next day or such, ofc adopting jjp high score photos etc.

That would make for a serious attemtp to vitalize and give a youth injection to pinball, instead of this fugly overpriced abomination.
