Quoted from twenty84:
The demand is there and if JJP has a game already designed and licensed but can't turn a profit at $9500 they're done.
My guess is that this is exactly why they are not going to make any more. It is too complex and expensive to produce and support at that price point. Their market analysis shows that raising the price to the needed profit level won't garner enough sales to justify restarting production. I think it is a simple return on investment decision. POTC is not earning what their investment in other pins can earn. Even though what is already invested is sunk cost at this point, the return on additional investment in parts, production lines, and support isn't warranted based on other options for their investment.
Pretty simple decision on the face of it ... but disappointing to a lot of people.
