It’s worth noting the the retail price for The Pin is now $2,499, down from the original $3,000. Hey STERN, $1,999 would be a powerful number. Just having that “1” in front would make it seem a lot more affordable. Think about how game console makers want to be able to crack that $199.00 price barrier as soon as they can. It would surely get more people, who are rediscovering the hobby, to think about getting a machine for the home. Besides, “nineteen ninety-nine” just rolls off the tongue more smoothly. Do it.
