Quoted from pinballaddicted:
The odd consumer not buying a game will have almost zero effect on Stern. People have to stop playing the games.
I agree with that sentiment.
Stern sales have been rising steadily the past several years per Dwight and Gomez AND confirmed by a big Distro I spoke to. Tracking sales for the year is doable with the serial numbers from Jan to Dec
Stern has two full lines and one smaller backup
When fully ramped they produce 50-60 games a day.
Like I said, my last LEs were great.
I still play my Munsters with pooling and it doesn’t impact my enjoyment one bit
Same thing with Ghostbusters, I don’t think about the two tiny insert ghosting slivers when I’m playing it
Would I rather have a perfect PF? Sure
But Stern sales won’t drop until they start making shitty games, prices go too high, the economy tanks or people just start losing interest.
If I wanted a TMNT, and I don’t, I wouldn’t hesitate to buy one, but that’s just me.
I respect the right of you guys being pissed off and unhappy and not buying
