Quoted from JodyG:

Here is how you can get your JJPOTC game, and even get it for free:
Call JJP up and offer to buy 1000 POTC games for 10 million bucks.
Once they agree, wire them the 10 million.
Sell 999 games for $12,000 each.
Save one for yourself.
Put the $1,988,000 profit in the bank.
Play your free POTC.
Seems easy, right?

Why the hell didnt I think of this.

#1154 7 days ago

Rather irrelevant, I am sure... but if they make more I will buy one.

#1156 6 days ago

That would be cool if that signaled a rerun of Pirates, but I’m not sure Pirates qualifies as a new title. So this is more likely just confirmation that a new title will come out this year.

Still, if it was Pirates, I may actually be in a position to buy.

If I'm reading that right, Keith is agreeing that no new title will hit customer's hands by the end of the year. Doing so with the Barbosa gif may indicate an existing title, Pirates, could be coming. Always good to have more copies of a game available. I hate the inflation crap on these games.

#1158 6 days ago

Only thing that need to be coming from Pirates is some f’ing code completion!

Oh. I thought he was agreeing to take the bet to make $100 by taking the opposite stance.

This is complicated.

I don't think that's what he was implying at all. Simply using a gif from a game they already worked on, to be playful regarding future game production.

It isn't that complicated. He was just agreeing to take the bet that a new JJP game would be released by the end of the year with that gif. He obviously has insider knowledge so it's a safe bet that a new JJP game is revealed by the end of the year now or he's out $100. The bet terms were, "$100 says no new title..." so if it was POTC he would lose the bet as POTC isn't new...so it isn't that game. Using the Barbossa gif was just a fun way to do it with hopefully a nod to the code update being announced soon as well.

I took it as Keith agreeing that no *new* title would be shipped this year. Who knows, though.

Keith was agreeing to the bet, taking the opposite stance of smalltownguy2. As an employee of JJP, if Keith knew that no new games were going to be released this year, he would never publicly say that, especially on a pinball forum. He would catch hell from JJP for a move like that.

The previous post was this...and then people were lining up to take that bet.

I hear ya. I guess it just comes down to whether he was agreeing to the bet or agreeing with the statement from smalltownguy2. The fact that we're debating it means he didn't actually say anything at all, I suppose.

"I'll take that bet" means you are taking the opposite end of the proposed bet. Keith was saying something will be released before year's end. Not clear if he means a "new" game or what.

Stop making complete and total sense.

#1167 6 days ago

Keith quoted "$100 says no new title hits a customer's hands by year's end."

Keith then typed "Agreed." With Barbosa saying Agreed in the Gif.

I take that as not a new title by years end... Make more Pirates!!

#1168 6 days ago

I’ll buy one put it next to my Stern Potc.

But it's so simple. Keith posted Barbossa saying "agreed" which clearly means that there is no new title before the year's end. However, a clever man would realise that Barbossa was a character in POTC, so only a fool would deny that the next game is POTC. But Keith must have known that in the movies, Barbossa has a pistol, and we all know that a pistol is a type of gun, so, clearly, the next game must be Guns and Roses. Nevertheless, Keith knows that Pinside is not populated by fools, so he must have suspected that we would know that Barbossa was carrying a pistol, so the next game must be Toy Story...

So, the next game is Princess Bride! That would be a nice surprise!

Seems to be a divisive comment, lol. Some of us think he was agreeing with Smalltownguy and some think he was taking the bet. No biggie to me.

Check the New JJP Teaser Video thread. Keith just posted a lengthy explanation of why JJP stopped making POTC when they did and the problems with making more of them. I read it as a pretty clear indication that they WILL NOT be making any more of them. Maybe someone else will read it differently.

I read his statements as a clear indication of why they stopped the run and moved to Wonka, earlier than originally planned. It is not a clear indication that they will never run more.

Ok. Well, like I said, someone else may read it differently than me. It seemed to me that his implication was that it would take a lot to start the line back up for POTC (buying all the parts, etc.) and that JJP's heart was no longer in it. But I could be wrong.

#1181 3 days ago

I guess it makes sense about PotC not enough juice for the squeeze.

I will say (for me) I could buy one for $15K whatever people are asking (I have the money) but I won't buy one unless it's $10K-$11K used price maybe another $500 for a new

I bought AFM LE and R&M BSE (both with toppers, colored armor, shakers, side blades, knocker yada yada yada) for $17K not worth it to me that one pin PotC would cost $15K

Also back in the day, I bought Tron, Iron Man and XMLE (three pins for $16K) even today I could get three pros for $17K (probably $15K for three used Stern pros).

No way in my book is Potc worth 3 Stern pros.

I love PotC but would rather have DP, Maiden and some other Stern pro or Hot Wheels.

He didn't actually *say* that, but it's a logical conclusion to draw. Spinning up parts isn't like ordering off Amazon. Plus who knows what the supplier lead times are now, if they're even working at capacity yet.

#1183 2 days ago

I’m not losing any sleep about Potc it’d be nice if it was remade because I don’t think it got enough exposure before it was gone, almost like TBL or Alien in that regard.

But... I’m banging my head against the wall either because my last game purchased was SW premium comic which (to me) is a better theme, I like Potc movies but I love SW.

And

R&M which I’m getting in October and I’ll have some room and space for something else like Maiden or GNR.

I agree, almost sounds like if there's enough demand and lead time they can run it easily

PotC had plenty of exposure. People were unforgiving a-holes at the time when the chest close feature and triple disc got pulled.

That's pretty harsh. How do you expect people to react when price is extremely high, long delays, and major features get removed with no compensation? People commented they were worried about huge depreciation and rightfully so. Excitement for the game was quickly heading south and there was zero indications this game would end up trading in the future for well over msrp.
