News : MMR Color Display Upgrade Cost Revealed.
The announcement for the MMR (Medieval Madness Remake) color display pricing has been finally revealed. Many people are quite upset because the claim from the beginning was if you bought an LE from Chicago Gaming you were promised the color display upgrade for free. Now if you bought an LE, the pricing is $199 plus shipping and $399 plus shipping for the standard. Far cry from if the color display was promised for free from the beginning. Not knowing all the details, I cannot speculate or comment on what was told to buyers before the release of the game. The colorized dots do look great though. Read the statement from PPS Pinball below.

Chicago Gaming Co. (CGC)
Planetary Pinball Supply, Inc. (PPS)
The color display upgrade for Medieval Madness Remake (MMR) was a large investment delivering outstanding quality fully colorized output in high resolution which enhances the overall MMR game experience. This option will be available on ALL MMR’s and the retail price will be $399+shipping. MMR Limited Edition (LE) original owners will receive a 50% discount of the retail price or $199+shipping.
The MMR color display upgrade will be a hardware (security chip) upgrade and will include the latest software revision (SD card) required in order for the color to be enabled. Full instructions are included in the kit.
The color upgrade will be available as follows:
– MMR LE Owners: the CGC kit will be available from Planetary Pinball webstore (http://www.planetarypinball.com) for $199 and will require customers to enter their LE# (from the Apron or Serial # on the back of the game) which will be verified by CGC that the owner matches the LE#
– MMR Standard Owners: you will be able to order the Color upgrade for $399 from any MMR game reseller who elects to offer them.
Kits are being created now by CGC and as soon as PPS receives notification that they are on the way they will be available for purchase – we are not going to take pre-orders until we are confident that the kits are on their way – we will update everyone when that happens. CGC indicated that the kits would be completed in next week or two and PPS will post an update when that happens and enable kits to be purchased on the store.
NOTE: We would encourage any original MMR LE owner (as well as all MMR original owners help with general warranty support) who has not submitted their warranty info to Chicago Gaming Company to do so as soon as possible as this will be one of the ways to verify the customer against the LE#. You can now email the warranty card info to email@example.com and please use the subject “MMR Warranty Registration” in the subject line. Warranty registration is particularly important when games were shipped to a reseller and then sold to the end customer.
NOTE: For LE original owner orders – if we have trouble verifying your LE# that may result in a delay in fulfilling your order.
NOTE: Shipping will need to be a trackable method of either domestic US or International.
If there are any questions, we will try to address what we can on the PPS forum at:

Thank you for your patience and we hope you enjoy your MMR in full color!
