Quoted from Chicoman:
Used pinball market is so inflated with regards to price. Only the n00bs to pinball are paying those ridiculous prices. I don't even look to the used market anymore....I'm strictly out there looking for new pins to add to my collection but even the new pinball sector is becoming congested with NIB Pinball machines. It use to just be Stern for NIB Pins....now there are many more companies....Jersy Jack, Chicago Gaming, Circus Maximus, Heighway Pinball, Dutch Pinball, Spooky Pinball, American Pinball.....the list of companies continues to expand and so does the market but I just don't see it continuing on this rocket like climb for much longer....I just don't think there is enough money to keep them all afloat! Only time will tell!
Yeah, I have no interest in the new games even the remakes of the classics. I grew up on the 90s games, and I am not desperate enough to spend north of 5k on banged up or poorly “restored/shopped” games. That I will have to dump another 1500-2000 into. Personally I like restoring games as much as I like to play them.
I get it it’s a supply and demand market I am in the finance business I know how it works I just couldn’t believe how much has changed since I stopped paying much attention. I wish I had the room to buy up and horde games back then.
