I know there is always a certain level of complaining when a new pin is revealed. But 100% of this is justified. I am in the market for another pin and was really looking forward to something REAL.
Quoted from Aurich:
This community sure knows how to throw a temper tantrum.
I'm curious to see how it all works personally. Do you really need a new announcement every month or two to keep you interested? Maybe stop and think about the vicious buying cycle and relax for a moment. Stern will have a new toy for you shortly I'm sure. Jurassic Whatever or some other lunch box.
Meanwhile, here's something slightly different, and instead of anyone being at all curious about how it might work (looks different from the Spider-Man home pin in some ways already) it's just crying and teeth gnashing. Have a little curiosity, and a little patience.
Yea but not all of us are in the vicious buying cycle. I've only had one pin for quite awhile now and have been interested in some of the rumored themes. For me this is just a massive letdown and I'm ready to buy something.
Quoted from Aurich:
So by something. Or wait. A new pin is only new for a couple weeks then it’s just another game. Get something used, it will have finished code and be a better value anyways.
All good points. But I was looking forward to something new being announced, just very disappointed, nothing wrong with that.
Quoted from CrazyLevi:
Corrects a number of issues that made the Spider-Man home (and The Pin before it) look so bad:
Legs outside the cabinet
No speaker on your right gonad
The small LCD makes sense too as it's proportional to the original, just smaller. The overall look is pretty professional. It appears to be a full-size pinball machine, and that's been the main obstacle no home game has overcome yet. I love the look of the head reminds me of a System 9 game.
Depending on price they could sell some.
If this is really a full sized machine then at least it's a step in the right direction. I still wouldn't consider buying it.
It must be really lightweight. In the stream the machine shakes a little bit with every press of the flipper. The problem is price, looks like a 3K machine.
