what say ye about the next pps release? I went with the three highest priced b/w titles as they seem most likely.

Please ignore the licensing issue as i want an accurate gauge of what is wanted, not what is probable.

#3 8 years ago

I hope mb, but universal license could kill it

Yup! Much easier to do AFM. (AND, I want one!)

#5 8 years ago

If they make afm and cc but not MB, I might have to pimp slap someone. (joke)

#6 8 years ago

Just like MM, AFM and MB will sell like crazy. The next several years could be banner years for these guys and brutal for everyone else.

#7 8 years ago

I left off TZ and TAF bc there are way too many out there and they sell below the $8K that they want for MM.

Farsight / Pinball Arcade managed to do it without much trouble. My fingers are crossed

I'd pay $8K for a new version of TAF even though there are many used ones available for less.

#10 8 years ago

so far, one person owns 1 or more of these pins and is upset about the prospect of these being reproduced.

#11 8 years ago

It's AFM and then CC. Doubt all you want but I called the remakes in the first place.

#12 8 years ago

AFM would be the way to go. Then slowly make their way down the list until it is no longer profitable. Of course what will happen with the market is that as these are re-issued, others will take their place in the ridiculous price category. I am going to take a wild guess here and say my Funhouse is going to be worth a lot more in a couple years. Good thing I got it for cheap and to play the hell out of and enjoy while occasionally getting angry at it and kicking it, not worrying about my "investment".

Nope, it is not going anywhere. Lives in the basement permanently, unless I'm dead broke.

#13 8 years ago

AFM hasn't been selling well at the $8K price point and above but the other two have. Just sayin'

#14 8 years ago

CC. Give people a chance that haven't even seen it, let alone played it.

#15 8 years ago

If you don't use CCC rules or at least finish the rules for CC it wont work. Its a neat game but gets old quick. CCC on the other hand is bad ass.

#16 8 years ago

Cactus Canyon - it is the most valuable, so buyers won't hesitate at $8K, unless PPS has a ton of quality issues with MM.

#17 8 years ago

13% think i should get screwed?

edit: that percentage is likely higher but they didn't feel like throwing away their vote on that option.

#18 8 years ago

Was hoping for a remake of Popeye or Bugs Bunny Birthday Bash, but I will take an AFM if I have to.

#19 8 years ago

I vote MB! So many heavily played and blown out games on that title. I would really love to see one in all of its glory.

#20 8 years ago

I'd prefer MB, but AFM seems like the most logical choice. No extra licensing fee, simpler bill of materials...I can't imagine that the demand for an $8k AFM will be ANYWHERE near this MM madness though.

#21 8 years ago

Cactus Canyon for me.

#22 8 years ago

wow, its a pretty close vote, as of right now at least

That brings up an interesting idea. Will they only remake machines that go for over $8000? What if they remake TAF. That is a $5000 machine in very nice shape. Would they have to price a remake at $4000-4500 to get sales? If so, does that mean they are cleaning up with MM at $8000?

#25 8 years ago

The problem I see with doing CC is, if it's not CCC, people probably wouldn't want it as much.

Rick stated according to the agreement with WMS, MM had to play exactly as the original, and Roger Sharpe needed to sign off on it. The problem with CCC is it's not WMS code. And if you made CC with a new boardset, how would you convert it to CCC? AFAIK, P-ROC doesn't work with this new boardset, or at least, no yet.

Lots of issues surrounding a CC remake...

#26 8 years ago

MB will never be remade due to the Universal license.

#27 8 years ago

Has to be Cactus Canyon, just due to low numbers made, BUT - it would need to have completed code to be viable, which now is obviously possible. They'd have no problem moving a boatload of CC, I'd sign on immediately

Do you hate money?

#29 8 years ago

CC - no thanks, not without some rule updates.

The no brainers are the unlicensed pins first, fully test the market with those, and decide if they want to go full force into some of the others.

New TAF - I'd be in too. Best machine ever made.

It's hard to not imagine AFM as the next logical choice for so many good reasons.

TPA managed to negotiate a license for MB (and HD, both Elvira games, TZ, ST:TNG, and T2)

I'm guessing it would certainly be possible for PPS to do the same!

Smart Money is on Monster bash

.

Yeah I think they'd probably finish the code.

Unlicensed first for sure. Easy and makes most sense. Doesn't hurt that AFM is waiting.

I am sure universal would be happy to sell a new license and make a profit. That's what business is about, why have a license if you don't plan to profit from it.

Nope. Love pinball....

#35 8 years ago

Bump.

Man, I hope they. Do monster bash next. The won't be able to do the new software with cc and I hear the new software is incompatible with the new boards, anyhow.

This is pointless, anyhow. Lol.
