It’s seems like we will hear an update on Wednesday. Here is a question for all of you pinsiders - what do you think a manufacturer makes in term of margins? This has to play into their decision making process. What is going on with JJP’s marketing strategy? It doesn’t seem like they have one.

If this results in a less than 5% margin savings - I really think they are insulting their customer base. Most people who are buying this machine own all of the JJP titles. Their marketing team has to realize this. They have a loyal customer base. Heck - I can’t stand the Hobbit, but I own the game.

This might be a good time for them to give us what they promised and eat the cost savings. I have a hard time believing this is a reliability issue and if it is, take a few more months and get it right. Before releasing the next title get your costs straight and have a marketing strategy in place. If everyone is happy with POTC, they will likely buy Toy Story, Willy Wonka, whatever is next, etc....

Also, I think it would help them if they changed their image too. There is no way that they should be compared to Stern. The volume isn’t there. They need to rebrand themselves as the premium boutique pinball manufacturer. Once they start cranking out games reassess, but that won’t be for years. There is something to be said about having the image of being the best and JJP is there IMO. They just need to restructure internally.

Quoted from WackyBrakke:

You can’t stand The Hobbit, but own one......makes sense to me

The movies not the game. JJP IMO did a great job making a fun game regardless of the theme.

What game do all of you think has more features now - Hobbit or Pirates?

#420 1 year ago

Valid point. Hobbits have been selling at low prices recently. It makes me wonder at 6K vs. 9.5K what is the better game? Regardless of price, which game has more mechs and interaction with the player at this point? Seems like Pirates has an upper playfield that moves back and forth and a pirate that spins in circles. If they just left the trunk working, I'd probably still buy it!

I was in on the CE, switched to an LE and back to the CE. Need to get off pinside for a little bit! I think the artwork will change, spinner stays and an aftermarket mod for the trunk. After watching the stream again... the game still has a lot to offer.
