Quoted from Eskaybee:
Sorry I don’t side with the red faced enraged vein popping haters that have been posting, but this game actually looks bad ass! Haha.
At $2,495 it looks pretty good. At $4,000+, not so much.
Quoted from CrazyLevi:
Do you really think they could sell this at $2500 and not lose money on every sale? This game is almost a pro. Put a bigger screen on it and coin mechs and it's a legit location game.
I guess I understand you think it's too expensive but at some point it's a moot line of thinking. I mean, $2000 would look even better. $1500 would look better still. $500?! HOLY SHIT!!!
But we are living in reality here.
I don’t disagree with what you’re saying, but I’d love to know cost on this machine.
I do have a pretty good feel for the home buyer/family that Stern is attempting to attract and at 4K they are losing that buyer. These folks are not diehard pinball fanatics and will most likely opt for a $2,500 pool table or a $2,895 Super Chexx Pro. I’d love to be wrong, but I don’t think I am.
I’m now ready to purchase Jurassic World LE so let’s make the announcement.
Costco has already sold Stern machines in the past. Years ago, Costco offered the stripped down (no spinners, no magnets, single coin door, and minus some other features that escape me right now) versions of IM and BMDK. I don’t believe that worked out too well so I wonder if Costco will be willing to devote any floor space.
Quoted from russdx:
looks pretty good to me, definitely looks like a real machine and not a toy which i like. Shame does not have the larger lcd though.
Seeing as NO ONE here actually knows what the BOM cost is / how much they spent on R&D its hard to say if it's priced fairly. Maybe pinballs are just expensive to make?? and you just can't sell them for 3k like every one wants.
So much hate for a company trying something different its insane!!! If you don't like it don't buy.
I don’t hate it at all.
However, I know that it’s not going to move at $4,000.
