You bastards, am I the only one looking forward to this? Pinball rules.

The game is going to have four tables, online multiplayer (with in-game video chat!), trophies.... I'm surprised it hasn't gotten any buzz. Has the world forgotten pinball?

Wasn't even on my radar - this looks sweet. Is it going to be a PSN download? What's the release date?

That does look pretty cool. Online with a friend would be decent too, just to shoot the breeze with.

Oh, yeah. This sounds good. I've been playing Williams pinball for the PS2 a good bit lately. I've been patiently waiting for the PS3 version which was suppose to come out in June. Now it looks like it will be in August. So, by the fall of this year we should have two pinball games for the PS3. As Tony says, "That's Grrreat!

Pinball FX for the 360 was so great that I'm considering keeping my PS3 for this game. It's strange they'd make one game 360 exclusive and the other PS3 exclusive.

Is this worth getting for $13? How about the PSP version?

inFamous, God of War 3, Uncharted 2, GT5, Ratchet Future, Heavy Rain, etc. aren't doing anything for you?

No, yes, no, no, no, and no, but that's not the thread for this discussion. I don't play enough of the games available for the 360 to have two game systems anymore and I want a Blu-ray player with 5.1 outs instead of replacing my $800 receiver.

Don't know about the PSP version, but for $13, yeah I think the PS2 version is worth it. The graphics are just so-so, but the tables are fun. I basically bought the game just to be able to play Gorgar. I have a lot of good memories wasting quarters on that game when I was in college. (I think I just dated myself)

There's one thing to keep in mind though. According to Amazon the game will be released for PS3 in a couple of months for $30 bucks. It might be worth it to wait for the PS3 version. Hopefully (Surely?), the graphics will be upgraded.

4 tables doesn't seem like a lot. I don't know if I would get tired of them quickly.

If they are good tables, I can see them having a lot of staying power (think Metroid Pinball; though I forget exactly how big that game was). I'm almost positive they will add tables later on, though.

The Williams collection was solid, and I was a big fan of Alien Crush on TG16 back in the day--not to mention a fan of actual pinball games.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one. Since most of the best 360 games are multiplatform these days, there's not much reason for me to fire it up anymore. It's been at least two months since I've turned it on. I've considered selling it, but I know I'll regret it.

Pinball Dreams/Fantasies on the Amiga is my all-time favorite pinball series. This one looks to be pretty interesting.

Mmm..pinball.

Have I ever mentioned how much I enjoy vpinmame, despite most of its tables being poor reproductions? (there are several really good ones, though!)

Well, it's $13 before Edge card. Too bad I didn't grab one while I had the 20% off coupon last week. 30% off $13 would have made it pretty darn cheap.

Some of my favorite pinball games were Williams. I'm 42, so that shows you how old the ones are I liked. Supersonic was GREAT! Williams pinball games had a very fast action compared to most.

It looks like that 2nd screenshot might show a little higher camera angle than Pinball FX. I played some more Pinball FX tonight and while I like the game, the camera angles are all too low. Like you're 4 feet tall and can barely see over the front edge of the machine. Makes it very hard to see the ball up high (and no the up close cam is no help...it makes you sick!). I'm hoping this game has a more top-down option with less actual camera movement.
