It is all a great conspiracy by Jack and his cohorts

I have to think that some of the full-time employees are building some of the machines at this point, even if some of the parts are still waiting for delivery. I would guess that a team of four people could build 12 to 15 games in a week once they have worked out how to manage difficult parts, and especially considering that wire bundles, lights, coil assemblies, and cabinet set-up are probably mostly done by suppliers.
Quoted from LTG:
I don't know if the plan has changed. At one point they were going to hand assemble the first games to learn the steps.
Then hire 15 people and train them. Then go into production.
In line with my guess in production per a four person team above, I would guess a 15 person team could make 50-60 games a week when they get the hang of it assuming the other parts/assemblies I mentioned above are done by the supplier.
I have seen pictures that they have already made at least a few so I would think they are capable of training people now if the necessary parts are available. The code is the other issue, but that can be put in after they are built provided they have areas to store the built games. Another possibility would be to put the most basic code in them for testing the mechanisms, and let the buyer download the code through the WIFI as soon as they get the machine.
Mine being a Feb. 2012 LE order, I do not realistically expect to get mine before January at this point.
Quoted from AkumaZeto:
i know why Dennis left i am just waiting to here the spin Jack puts on it. Its gonna be a slick slippery greasy slope he slides down thats for sure.
Lets just say Jack has burned lots of bridges and he continues to burn them.

Jack said that he is not talking about the guys that left and that what they do after they have left is their business.
Anyway, it was a well-known rumor that Jack had sort of agreed to let Nordman make an un-licensed theme as JJP #2 but plans changed as has the planned timeline for JJP including WOZ.
If Nordman can do better working for another company then that is his choice.
