Unless I am reading this wrong, new buyers are the *only* chance EAs have at getting their games in the future.

Quoted from Rarehero:

That’s only if you believe this new story from known liars. My take: This is happening so Barry & ARA can call it square. After these games are gone, DP will officially cease to exist, you’ll never hear from Barry again or see any more TBL.

There are two paths;
1) Boycott these 40 and no one gets the games. They go in the garbage. DP goes bankrupt. 0% chance EAs will get what they paid for.
2) Sell these 40 at the inflated price, settle with ARA and there is something greater than zero chance EA games are built before the end of time.

That doesn't mean you are wrong in your prediction, but really it is the only possibility left for pre-paid folks.

I am curious how Cointaker is protecting itself from paying for a container of half-assembled, half-corroded, non functional games?

Quoted from cpr9999:

Financial risk is on the buyers end - they will be shipped to you. Cointaker is just passing them along, they are not unboxing them to check them (& don’t even think a little that there is any sort of warranty or spare parts). Buy at your own risk level. Hopefully, all turns out fine for the 40 units.
What risk Cointaker is taking on is their reputation here to either (as you see it): to make a few pennies in the deal OR serve the NA pinside market.
Personally I give them kudos, but if there is lots of issues, no good deed will go unpunished!

I guess what I am really interested in is the mechanics of when the dollars are transferred from CT to DP. Will it be immediate to get the games moving? Will it be when the shipping manifest are delivered? Will it be after the container lands and can be inspected? CT is taking a financial risk selling a game with their name on the bill of sale. If a game goes missing, is delivered as a rat infested surprise , or just a cardboard box full of Dutch candy, the credit card backcharge will go to them. The transaction is between the game buyer and CT. I have to believe CT is taking all the right precautions, but it just seems that it could go bad in so many ways.

Helmets ON!

Quoted from MOMM:

Yes, Nitro will be getting games. Our first priority is to those that still have deposits with us.

So that is 40 machines through CT and an additional amount through Nitro? I thought the total number available was only 40?
