Hi Folks,
Other than rumors, wish lists and gossip....Is there any information about the next release as of yet? Is there any idea how many remakes are in the plans for Planetary Pinball?
Love my MMr, cant wait to add to the collection.
Thanks,
Jim

Nope, that was the idea, but a couple of details not ironed out, so we are not announcing sooner than it should.

We are finalizing things, and I will post on the PPS forum information as soon as we have anything to post, but it will be soon.


I can tell you that most parts are in or have been ordered, and assemblies are being constructed now, electronics have been done for months. There are just some minor cosmetic details being finalized, etc.


We have had something to do with the delay in announcing as we want the distance between ordering and delivery to be 'reasonable'.

so just so I'm clear the place I need to keep looking back on this page for the announcement? (not pinside or tilt etc.)

also how long after the announcement are you planning on taking orders? (can I call planetary to place an order directly after I see the announcement?)

thank you

SO, the FIRST place I'm going to announce it here, and I'm sure whether I or CGC announce it on Pinside it would be there within a minute or two anyways.


We would likely be taking 'pre-orders' as the game will be shipping reasonably soon after the announcement. The game will be built at Chicago Gaming which has the benefit of not having alot of issues in terms of finding parts and scheduling the line (which the Stern execs have been great, but the combination of two companies trying to manage parts shortages and issues has been a challenge) - so the upside should be a more consistent 'up-time' to producing games. The downside is that CGC's line will inherently be running slower per day ... but given the starts and stops on the MMR line thru the past year, it could actually be a positive, we will see.


The game is going thru final tinkering, and it went into UL testing awhile ago, but with so many things going on here, I've not checked on the status - it's alot easier this time, as CGC knows the 'pinball' UL process, as well as there are many components that are the same or similar, etc. I should be getting a pre-production game here in Reno shortly, as well as I know they are looking to put a couple out on test.


Stay tuned.


Rick

Hello Rick,
Thanks for the update and excellent information, I am very much looking forward to your new game.  The MMr you guys made is wonderful.
Have to ask, and I apologize for the frustration it may cause....Do we have an official name of the new game yet and pricing structures?
I look forward to hearing from you and certainly understand your need for careful release to avoid the usual backlash.
Jim

not yet ... we certainly have a name, but have not published that, as it's not useful without the answers to other key questions (pricing, etc) ...


it is FAR less painful to keep pushing the announcement that it would be to take pre-orders and deal with that we had for MMR ...


You will hear it from me first, PPS is the largest reseller of MMR's and we expect to be the same for the next games as well.

Thanks Rick,

Like many others I'm sure, I am very much looking forward to your next machine release.
Ill keep an eye out for future posts from you, and completely understand Planetary's need to be cautious with information updates. 
Question about the physical purchase, will it be handled from the PPS website?
Jim

There is a discussion required about current availability, questions to answer, etc, also payment options ... so while we will have info on the site it will generally be not be ordered via the web ...
