Quoted from Vpv1rgin:

The real questions is let’s assume they do in fact make more games. How much will they cost? $10,500, $11,000? I don’t think they were making any money at $9500.

Hmmm... that's interesting. They sell new POTC playfields on their website for $1,000 unpopulated. They have offered them at "Cost" - $550.00 - to those owners with bad PF chipping. I'd say that's a healthy mark up. So I'm thinking they are making at least 45-50% margin (not profit mind you) on new pins as well. Those here on Pinside that run a medium to large size business, would hopefully agree that operational costs, employing personnel, building mortgage, business insurance, local taxes, 401k, health care, investor dividends, etc, etc.... it would take at least 45% margin to make even a small profit. So yeah, I think you are right. They are likely not "making money" (or not a lot of it) but they are employing people and giving them a living. Which with a medium size business like JJP, that's a pretty great thing in this day and age. : )
