      Please Stern, add a proper head quality Control officer instead and you wont need a marketing campaign.

      This is the standard practice for companies that are growing so large that the left hand doesn't know what the right is doing.

      Usually sanctioned by other white collar workers in the organisation to draw the heat away from them.

      It is a classic case of too many cooks and nobody willing to accept responsibility for the cockups.

      Ive been saying this for a while now, people just keep lining up for them.
      The only thing holding them is the themes. Stern have great themes.

      But I really feel people are now starting to back away from Stern.

      They are the only real game in town at the moment, the other ones are more boutique other than JJP and their themes are not to everyones taste. They are getting a free run with pricing due to the silly prices older williams games are getting now.

      And they can now Mark as we have choice and some pretty good choice at that. It's that choice that SHOULD make Stern lift their game. You only have to look at how many other brands have sold x number of machines for Stern to see how much of the consumer dollars that have lost. Some maybe be left based on theme but a lot would be the consumer voting with their wallets somewhere else. I love Stern games but quality and content can't keep getting ignored and Stern should realise this. How can they not? Maybe SW will be the turning point as it seems to be a global feeling of discontent on what could have been done regarding what is probably one of the biggest licences on the planet. Why wouldn't you try to to the whole hog. Extra lights like STLE shaker included mirror backglass include. The whole nine yards hell they could have sold 2000 LEs in my opinion if they got this right. My 2c worth.
