Quoted from NorCalRealtor:
I no longer buy into the B/W superiority and DE/Sega inferiority that was spoon fed to me when I got into the hobby. I have owned plenty of both now and find a lot of DE/Sega pins to be just as fun and plenty reliable. But I don't mind all the B/W snobs talking down on DE/Sega. It helps keep the prices down.
I mean obviously to each their own. I have owned several data east titles over the years and enjoyed a lot of them quite a bit. The resale on most of those titles is not the same as bally Williams. It’s just not. I have a JP right now. It’s a cool game. If it were a bally it would be a $3500 game or more. That doesnt mean it’s a bad game or less of a game than any other game because it’s a data east. It’s just the way the market dictates the price.
