    I am with Rarehero on this one.

    Online connectivity for checking machine errors, status logs, patching, auditing info, etc. but for head to head gaming probably not.

    Also, poll is a bit misleading. I think they will be online in a few years - but for the above (not part of the gaming experience)

    For what it's worth JJP is probably further along and likely have future proofed - as much as they could be I guess - their games as they are all PC based hardware and using a desktop UNIX based operating systems.

    Quoted from Zablon:

    Hi this is Microsoft support. Your pinball machine has notified us of an issue.

    But I used new rubbers!?

    Quoted from TreyBo69:

    Spike is UNIX too

    Didn't know that. Good info, they may be good to go then as I was considering a USB based wifi hardware option.
