    Except for the small handful of people that collect, it's over Johnny. I don't think the general public, or the younger generation cares about pinball.

    I don't think it's making a come back at all. The demand is small. There really is no market for it, besides supplying a small number of collectors. It's becoming obsolete. Pinball is on life support. It's a dying struggle to keep it alive.

    The hefty price tags just are adding nails to the coffin for the people that enjoy it. 6-7K NIB for each title. MM/CC 14-15K. BBB 20K. Right.

    Last I checked, you don't need a MM, CC or BBB to enjoy pinball. Hell, although I know a lot of people on this site don't agree, there are a ton of cheap early SS and EM titles that I think are just as much if not more fun than newer ones that you can get for $500 or less all day.

    I understand your point. I wish I liked the early ss and em's as much. I would have been done years ago. Bought in bulk.
