Maybe if there was a Street Figher II one I'd care.

Actually, I got the Capcom stick and like it because I really wanted one, and for reasons other than for collectibility. I'm sorry you were disappointed by your TV Game purchases, but I have been pleased with all of mine (and I have 6).
Incidentally, I never said Jakks Pacific lost money on Ms. Pac-Man. In fact, I'm pretty sure they made a huge amount of money on the Namco II stick, maybe even more than they did on the original Namco stick. Jakks cites only 3 TV Games as having been failures: the World Poker Tour, EA Sports, and Mortal Kombat models. They say the others have sold pretty well, and I know of certain models being singled out as top sellers: the Namco (presumably the first one), Spider-Man, The Batman (apparently, this one alone sold over 1 million units), and Wheel of Fortune models. I'm also pretty sure that the Namco II model was a good seller, considering it was on Amazon.com's best sellers list for a while.
Also, atarilovesyou, you may have gladly paid $50 for a better stick and more accurate port of Ms. Pac-Man, but for the average consumer, and also for me, $50 is out of the question for a plug-and-play game. I honestly don't think Jakks Pacific, being a large, publicly owned, mainstream toy company and not a small specialist manufacturer, would have turned a profit selling plug-and-play games at $50. I know I wouldn't have bought any.

And after the majority of the buyers saw what kind of quality they were getting via Ms Pacman, can you blame them for not trying the others? Why should they?
Anyway, I hear what you're saying. It would have been nice if they did it right when it REALLY mattered, the flagship of their line nonetheless. I've heard the Capcom stick is great...I would have bought one, but ...nah. Not after Ms Pacman. And I think this type of thing hurts ALL plug n plays, Flashback systems included. Consumers remember negatives, and BUY positives...but perhaps the negative backlash of multiple returns during 2004 Christmas lingered into the 05 season when the BEST plugnplay so far, Flashback 2.0, was released. Just my thoughts.
