You got the buttons, the form factor of pinball. You got a nintendo switch that you really enjoy pinball games on same thing. They got something for you and even to boot. They’Re building their own virtual pinball machines, full size, full scale, so i’m, really anxious to see what those look like and how those turn out. But overall i got ta say sharpen’s doing it right, it’s, a smaller company, but the good thing about being a smaller company is they can focus on doing everything right as far as their build quality and structure, everything about this machine, all the lines, the seams everything Came together top notch quality overall, as far as they build they ship all over, so there’s great availability to everyone out there.
