Quoted from pinballwil:

Other pinball makers told me GOT its coming but they don't no if it is after kiss.
Its coming for shure.

We all know it's coming, the radio interview with Carice van Houten a while back confirmed that.

Quoted from lowepg:

Much as I want to see a GOT pin, if its not going to feature an LCD and rather just rehash the same 90's tech, I'd just assume it NOT be next.
Bring out some shit title like Jaws or ghost busters (themes that are already 20+ years old) and save the good stuff for later....

How does a display make the "pinball" of the game better for you exactly? As long as the game kicks ass, who cares what the display is?

Would a TZ with a calculator display become a worse game than a GI with a movie theater attached to it?

When you play in large groups of people or have parties the display makes a difference. Helps people follow the game more. The display matters big time, especially in home collections.

It's a flat out better and a more up to date experience IMO. The DMD is very very dated pinball is still alive and kicking so why don't we get with the times and let pinball evolve? IMO a LCD screen the size of large Sega displays would be perfect. No need to overdo things but there is a need to get with the times.

I think the LCD screen that is on TBL is going to become the widespread standard eventually.

I doubt it. That's a custom cut size. Very spendy.

#807 4 years ago

I'm still waiting for an announcement before I vote in the poll. That way I can say that I voted for the right one.

I fully expect Jared to endulge in and enjoy dragging this out as long as possible.

lol really? I've never heard anyone at my place ever comment on an aspect of the display, it's really only looked at at the end of each ball.

If there is one aspect of pinball I really could care less about anyone concentrating on advancement, it's the display, well no, maybe the cab art first, then display.

I honestly would expect no less. If it pisses people off, so be it, but it's just pinball.

First GoT is cancelled for a Rocky Horror game, and now it's shut down in favor of an internet free clip-art theme game? No thanks.

Good point.

Why do they even paint the playfield? Why not just leave it white- i mean it doesnt really effect the gameplay, right?
And why all the silly artwork on the cabinet...
And this foolish desire for music and sound....

Yes, aesthetics MATTERS. Pinball is more than a steel ball.

Tomorrow's the day.. Got

#820 4 years ago

The Friday before Labor Day is a bad day to make an announcement unless you are a politician wanting to hide something in a slow news cycle. I'm guessing we won't hear anything until next week. That said, I hope Stern proves me wrong.

Well then you've never had a WOZ. People comment on the display at my place all the time. Then they say, "This must be new". Then they ask how old my Sterns are. I tell then 1-5 years old and they are blown away. They say they look a lot older. Hmmmm....

I understand, but who cares what other people think? If they don't know anything about pinball which is obvious theres a slim to zero chance they are going to spend 5 to 10K on a NIB pin, I would rather have an alpha numeric display and get better playfield toys, lighting, gameplay etc. display and cabinet are the least important aspects to a pin for me.

hmmm, I dunno, I've seen some WoZ playfields that look a lot older than they really are

#824 4 years ago

If you rotate it..........

Hmmm looks like a playfield to me. The circles look like inserts?

That's a loooong playfield. I don't think so.

Haha you do realise that this is just a stock image from the Internet? It would be like posting a random picture of clouds and people seeing pictures in them.

See Guenesstime's screen capture above to see where Stern got the pic from.

#827 4 years ago

You can even get them in other colors

"techno-grey-emo-theme"...maybe it is a clue after all, perhaps Rocky Horror is "emo" now. A little soon for another emo-themed game, we already got Daryl in AMC®'s The Walking Dead

It's quite clever.....at first look, you think it's immediately Game of Thrones.....but it's currently just a blank slate.

I WAS RIGHT!!! I VOTED FOR GAME OF THRONES AND THERE IS THE PROOF I WAS RIGHT!

No I said it was coming this week at the beginning of the week. When Friday came obviously it had to be today.

#844 4 years ago

This poll was started so long ago I forgot what I voted for

Hey....I vote for more pinball!

#845 4 years ago

Here's hoping the LE just has bling over the pro.

#846 4 years ago
Quoted from kvan99:

Agreed. My guess is it will be like Star Trek though and the top light show will be LE/Prelium only with only minimal inserts color changing on the pro.

#847 4 years ago

Hope so..someone mentioned the LEs will have different trims for the different houses. These guys are making it hard to go pro but I got my fingers crossed that the Dragon, magnets and stuff are the same on all trims.

Im betting the LE/Prem will have many more upgrades/features compared to the Pro. I'm just interested to see pricing.

IMO pricing of new pins has gotten totally out of control and I bet they try and up it again on this one. It's tough to pass on a pin I love but soon I will have to pass on all new pins if the prices continue to climb like this on principle alone. It's getting super close to that point for me.

#849 4 years ago

Everyone's always talking about the dragon, but this is surely a Hobbit-killer with three dragons. That's way more dragons.

#850 4 years ago

In our niche hobby there is enough love for both Hobbit and GoT.
