Wooohooo that's terrible.

Quoted from Coz:

Looks like a poorly made home brew pin, I was expecting so much more.

Nah. It looks decently 'made' -- it's just ... eugh. It's not like it's hand cut plastics and sharpies.

Quoted from robotron:

love the detail in this one. nice exposed wire.

An optical spinner. Wild. Why'd they do that?

Quoted from Richthofen:

its crazy they didn't just put the hole and opto on the other side of the spinner though, to avoid snaking the wire over the top.

Both ends of an opto need power.

Quoted from Shapeshifter:

Why no picture of the LCD?
Looks like it was cropped out?
Is there definitely an LCD?

There is. That last 'it won't be long' animated shot is from the game display.

Quoted from Darscot:

Does this even have an LCD or DMD, based on the video I don't think it does. People expecting Rockband and Stern delivers this. This is about what I expected but Stern really needs to sort our their marketing and PR. They are just so disconnected.

It has the standard LCD. The "Won't be long" animated screen at the end is from the display.

Quoted from TechnicalSteam:

Wonder if you could take a Seawitch Playfield and plunk it in Beatles game and do an Alternative translite. - Hack some roms - and have sewitch 2019

Without the extra stuff on the playfield you couldn't just pinball-browser out the music and graphics to make it a seawitch game.

If Stern wasn't so stretched thin on programming man-hours they could do a family guy/shrek with this new playfield and do an unlicensed release of the layout as Fathom 2.0. Would need all new art/audio/etc so it wouldn't be cheap, and then pinside would be crying again.

Quoted from DS_Nadine:

Is this really the same ben heck then in the videos?
You seem kinda bitter.
And with 'kinda' I mean... uh... off every chart?

Bitter Ben is real Ben. Element 14 video Ben is a character.

Quoted from vid1900:

While the Beatles are idealistic, the Monkees are cynical under a saccharine sweet glaze.

It's almost as if [the monkees] were put together by corporate America for a comedy tv show or something.

#1165 1 year ago
Quoted from Svend:

I would seriously not be surprised if Stern is taking the piss out of us and does in the end come up with a proper pinball machine instead of what's being shown now.

Why on earth would you consider this a possibility when the preview video of the machine is available?

#1167 1 year ago
Quoted from InfiniteLives:

whats funny is you cannot search for the video on youtube or on sterns page to find it. you have to already have the link.
i agree with you 100% that this is the game, but just real odd how they are treating this video. locked it down from comments and made it hard to find.

It's on the thebeatlesstore.com page. It's not a secret.


#1190 1 year ago
Quoted from InfiniteLives:

thats pretty weird in my humble opinion.

You can’t find it on Stern’s page because it’s unlisted. Maybe the Beatles store has some deal to get to be the ones who release the info. Nobody knows, but it’s not some conspiracy.

Quoted from luvthatapex2:

Anyone want to talk about something other than the price and flipping these games?
Like any guesses on the LCD content? Will it be focused on Ed Sullivan appearances (they were on that show 9 times)?
Will there be a story line?

My guess is it will be generic colorful art/text as a majority because of license difficulties. It'd expect the same still images that are on the playfield/cabinet when the band is used.

Quoted from kermit24:

So is Joe K saying that these will all be selling below $10k? Read that somewhere.

That's from the reviewjournal article. It specifically says:

"The machines will sell for less than $10,000, Kaminkov said, declining to provide specifics."

I took that to mean "you'll be able to get one for less than 10k", meaning the cheap one would be less than 10K - not really talking about the other 2 editions. But I could be wrong.

#2267 1 year ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

I get the impression things are not selling anywhere as well as you presume. Joe seems to be a bit touchy on the subject all together...

Why would Joe being reactionary about someone insulting his game be any indicator of sales?
