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.
