not you specifically Mike (as always), but the pinball industry does itself no favours in building a market. I appreciate your stance and its something I also drive with my own team. And as I said looking forward to seeing what Joe comes up with.I'm unsure if that is a dig at me?? If it is, my response is below - if it isn't then perhaps you should use a few more words to ensure your comments are not seen as ambiguous.
In any case we run our own race here at Homepin and are pretty much oblivious to what other companies are up to AND that is very deliberate.
I have no intention of being influenced by what others are doing - good and bad - as, like I said, we run our own race and do things our own way. Some will see this as bad, others will say good - either way it's just how we operate.
If the 'timing' of my announcement clashed in some way with some other announcement, that is purely coincidental, it was not intentional nor of any consequence whatsoever.
When we announce the title of our new machine, that will also be done without any reference to any other companies business. What they do simply is of no concern to us.
