Well then, that could just be a cool thing to attend.

Well that's like saying TF stopped in the 80s and only showed up again in 2007... Pinball launch parties haven't stopped either, you just never hear about them.

 

Nope. That's a completely different argument. You're moving the goalpost. I know there a plenty of pinball enthusiasts I just didn't think there would be such a big buzz nowadays over the release of a new machine that calls for such an extravaganza.

 

Yeah Tron had a similar thing. I think it has to do with the following of the product.
