Pinball Magazine & Pinball News: Interview with American Pinball
On different models:
David Fix: “Starting with the next game…there’s going to be two models, a Deluxe and a Classic. The Deluxe is going to be designed just for homeowners and the collectors. The Classic is going to be designed more for the operators. However, homeowners can buy the Classic too and enjoy it just the same, it is just going to be different trim packages.”
[Note: Fix also said the gameplay will be nearly the same on the different models.]
On licensed vs. unlicensed themes:
David Fix: “The next two games coming out from American Pinball will be unlicensed.”
[Note: Fix also said that licensed titles would be coming after those two unlicensed.]
