Quoted from fosaisu:
Huh, interesting move. With HUO WOZLEs listed at $7500, and HUO WOZ Standards at $6700, it's hard to imagine they're going to move a lot of NIB Standards at $8500. Maybe they're calculating that used prices are already enough of an anchor that their primary sales for WOZ going forward will be to affluent newcomers to pinball, who either won't notice or won't care about the increased price differential? Or maybe it's just an illusory bump in MSRP so that dealers can maintain prices but trumpet a larger discount from "retail"?
Still can't say it makes a ton of sense to me.
