The pinball community has another great game to add to its list!
It doesnt matter with it turns out for someone to be a "7", "8" or "10"
Simply knowing its part of a mega year of releases, is the hopes all vendors have great sales,
as can we ever Not want new games?
We have a few debates on model, a few on art, and likely some on game play....nothing the pinball community hasnt done before, but with this release, the consensus is overwhelmingly positive!
Im joining the Frenzy with an LE, my first to have an LE at home, and that makes it part of, nostalgia, art, game play, and more as a reason.
For the monetary side, here is my biased view, on how I justify this:
Yes, I am not thrilled with the cost, but am comfortable with any loss, as long as my family and friends and I find the joy in playing. Many people pay hundreds to rent a machine for an event, I dont mind this expense if it means I keep for a year!
So, I put on the CC, write it office as a business expense, and pay for it monthly on an equity line.
For those that like numbers, Full payment to my distributor, Credit card rewards/cash back.
Depreciation, and interest only payments. Depending on how you dice the numbers, the purchase costs, Interest only payment, $14-$16 a month cost to own. After Tax benefits, $12-$14 a month cost to own. A Premium $10-$12 a month.
How could anyone not, who may have some home equity to tap, and is responsible, not want a Premium, for under $15 a month, and if you sold it a year later, have the standard opportunity of losing $500-$600.
It might go up, it likely will go down, but if someone said, Own a Premium in your house for just $2.00 a day.....Would you jump on this game or another?
Its one big long way to self rationalize this purchase.
Of course one needs a home with equity, a spouse that accepts it, and room to place it!
Think about it.....So many new games, 1 year old games, and Happy Faces everywhere!
Bring on Ghostbusters!
Its a Great Year for Everyone in the Hobby!
