I'm not holding my breath here, but I'm cautiously optimistic about this. I hope they deliver on their promises, and that the market can bare the quantity of machines they are saying they will be pushing.

It seems highly unlikely that with the amount of money invested, the legitimate facilities that people have seen, the amount of known and proven talent (sans jpoop) on the payrolls, and the time committed (3 years or so at this point), that this thing is all an elaborate masquerade by some huckster. It's more of an aggressive, brute-force, blitzkrieg into pinball manufacturing. Unless it's an elaborate ponzi scheme and/or money laundering scheme, but why pinball, and not something else far more mainstream to fleece far more plentiful and willing investors looking for their next get-rich-quick plan?

I wish them good luck, and am hoping to see what comes of all of this. They have perennial designers on staff of some of the most beloved machines of all times.

More pinball is always good in my book, and maybe, just maybe, this whole thing may drive prices back to sanity on the used market.

Quoted from BrewinBombers:

Someone who thinks "guerrilla warfare" is racist doesn't know the etymology of the word or understand that guerrilla and gorilla are different words. Not political, just facts.

Late to the party, but...

He said "gorilla". Not "guerrilla". "Guer", "go"

Meh, I'm not offended or alienated by any of these statements. I think it's pretty funny that the CEO is shitposting here to be honest. Some people take pinball SERIOUSLY.

(As an aside, I've never pre-paid for an item that doesn't exist, so I've got no skin the pre-order game; which is really shitty)

Also, he never mentioned any problems with CGC, therefore I should probably be putting my money down on a MMr, AFMr, or a MBr (why I actually haven't yet, I'm not sure...)

This thread is a soup sandwich...

It really has it all:

"F#ck DR!";
"F#ck Stern!";
"F#ck JJP!";
"F#ck AP!";
"F#ck Spooky!";
"F#ck CGC!"
"F#ck Suncoast!";
"F#ck Gottlieb!";
and I think there was even a ""F#ck B/W!" at one point as well, if I'm not mistaken. (Which begs me to ponder, do DE/Sega get no "love", or are they captured by extension of stern? No Gameplane? No Zaccaria? No Capcom?)

By this logic, who will be the first to just come out and say "F#ck Pinball!"?

Quoted from chad:

As well as Something that is posted online say 15 years ago and that persons views changed to a better , but still gets lambasted over it....and loses job or endorsements.

Before cuing the Robert Downey from Tropic Thunder, or Dave Chappelle in whiteface as the news anchor gifs, I'd like to relay a story from my undergrad days.

Two kids down the hall in my dorm, who were randomly paired by the university to be roommates, were almost text-book polar opposites. One kid was from a wealthy suburb of NYC, had a new (then) BMW M3, both parents were well-to-do doctors. Stereotypical "preppy". The whole nine. Mike was going to school to be a doctor himself.

The other kid, was from what most would consider humble roots. Came from a poor family, played baseball but wasn't "good enough" to get a scholarship for it, his dad worked in some crummy factory 7 days a week to make ends meet. Paul was a good student though, and a hard worker, and worked full time during the 4 years I knew him.

Anyways, the two formed an unlikely duo, and were pretty tight. Tight enough that they chose to remain roommates all four years, and met each other's families and what not. Well sophomore year, they decided to go as the other for Halloween. Mike rocked Paul's baggy Carhart jeans, his old redwing boots, and his flannel shirt. Paul dressed up in Mike's Gucci dinner jacket, his designer jeans, and Italian loafers.

If you haven't guessed by now, Mike was black, and Paul was white, and they helped each other with their respective "face-makeup". Everybody that saw them thought it was hilarious, and nobody was offended by it. Many pictures were taken, and the administration didn't get involved. I can't imagine what the reaction by the administration would be in today's world. And this was only 20 years ago.

I'm not going any further than that, I just wish we could all get along, and stop being offended at everything. It makes life so much more fun and interesting.

I could see that pinbar getting smashed right quick in a bar or bowling alley setting, purposefully, or by accident. People punch lockdown bars out of anger or as a save reflex. Some drunk idiot goes to set a beer bottle down a little too quick and...

Interesting concept, but I'm not sure about its implementation. Maybe two small touch screens at both ends under a traditional lockdown bar with windows cut out for it would be better? I guess this is why i don't work in the industry, haha.
