Quoted from HighVoltage:
That explanation appears to make sense, but Stern announced a day after the show. So there's a 1-day buffer for sales generated by interest from the show, and that's when you think all these sales happen that an announcement might affect? That "hopefully buy them" suggestion is fantasy: everyone who wanted one, bought the show demos. Anyone that was waiting to try before purchasing, isn't going to lock in the sale in that 1-day buffer.
From a strict, "stealing the thunder" of Munsters, I'd agree with, but just from a psychology perspective though it would look bad: not from a sales perspective, which is what the poster I replied to was suggesting.
Has anyone considered that MGC had something like 31 Iron Maidens on the floor last year and it was the biggest launch ever? Maybe the people of that show are being rewarded.
In the past 60 hours I have jumped all over about which model I want including LE and PRO together at one point. Right now thinking Premium but MGC could change my mind to PRO. Gotta play it I guess even though that goes against all conventional wisdom.
Quoted from TomGWI:
Yeah I know when I walk up to a pinball machine, the first thing I do is stare at the art for at least 20 minutes making sure everything is perfect and anatomically correct before I put my money into the machine.
The Black Knight needs his arm and wrist to bend like that to help when navigating around Luci's misplaced hip.
As an owner of BK and BK2K and will own a Stern BK premium soon I feel the need to discuss the most important parts of this new release. Here they are:
Bob the Builder
Shit box that takes my picture when I don't want it taken
Waaaaaaah, I want my pinball to tell me a story, a mode based story.
Can we flush the turd that is DI into it's own thread and stay on topic? Please?
Quoted from Mike_J:
Is the Pro really as good or better than the LE/Premium or are people just trying to make themselves feel better because they didn’t want to spend the money on the big boy version?
The upper playfield is not that fun. I want the premium art but the pro is more fun.
