Before everyone gets upset, I am not slamming Stern. Love their games and thank goodness they exist.
But first they came out with WrestleMania. They missed the popularity window by a decade or more.
Then Nelly. Ok, not really a Stern game, but their finger prints are all over it.
Now things are looking more and more realistic that Kiss will be the next pin.
So, will Kiss sell well, or be the 3rd(ish) weak machine in a row?
I say ish because Mustang sales started slow, but I think more and more people are warming up to it and its gaining some steam. Walking Dead is borderline. The machine had such great potential. What timing to release that title, but Stern kind of crippled it without the full license and horrible voices. Now people are unloading it and selling them for much less than they should get.
Don't get me wrong, yes, each one of these titles will sell some and I am sure Kiss will sell more than the previous 2. But the mass appeal I don't think will be there. I would think Stern cant afford to keep making weak sellers.
