Who would bet that Stern already has a distribution agreement in place with Costco? Do you think a $3999 price tag would be too prohibitive to actually move these things in a Costco?

Quoted from koops:

$4k is a shit ton for retail/impluse buy.
What else in costco compares at that price level? The biggest tv they carry perhaps?

I've seen full size Mame cabinets, pool tables, air hockey. This is definitely more expensive but I could see it happening. They only need to sell a handful at each Costco location to outsell anything Stern has done in the past 10 years.

Quoted from sataneatscheese:

Good point. Costco has 770 locations. Lets say they bring a pallet of 4 to each location, that's 3,000 machines at $4,000 each and $12,000,000 of revenue for an existing license, low/no art costs, low/limited programming, and a lightly modded existing layout.
I am really not a fan of the machine but there are some smart people working upstairs at Stern and I can see this making them some serious money.

And consider that it would probably not be the only distributor for this machine. They could easily use their traditional resellers and sell another 2-3K machines. This could be the biggest money maker for Stern, that doesn't at all resonate with the hardcore base.
