10w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King announced today that the Pinball Arcade is getting a Terminator 2 table on Tuesday.
Below are the details, to quote: Hey there, Playstation gamers! It's been an exciting time for us in bringing pinball table recreations to everyone on PS3 and Vita!
Over the month of September, we've released four classic pinball tables in two packs; Champion Pub, Whirlwind, Flight 2000, and Goin' Nuts. Now, thanks to our amazing supporters and a successful Kickstarter campaign back in July, we'll release Terminator 2: Judgment Day on PSN this Tuesday, as well!
PSN users, are you ready for Judgment Day? This table was released by Williams in 1991 and is unquestionably one of the greatest pinball tables of all time.
It was designed by the legendary Steve Ritchie (who also designed Firepower, Black Knight, High Speed, and Star Trek: The Next Generation). T2 was the first game by Williams to use a dot-matrix display. The table was also the first game to feature a video mode and a swing out cannon that can be fired by the player. It's one of our favorite tables ever!
We hope everyone's been enjoying the releases so far! Also, for those confident in their pinball skills and want to show it, we've begun introducing Tiered Tournaments...

To quote: Starting today, we will be offering the Pinball Arcade launch pack of four tables, free to PS Plus subscribers! Tales of the Arabian Nights, Black Hole, Theatre of Magic, and Ripley's Believe it or Not are all great tables.
If you're a Plus subscriber and you haven't tried our game yet - what do you have to lose? These machines are all classics. The depth, well-balanced, and yet, challenging gameplay is something that's worth checking out. But that's not all.
We have bundled our first ten Table Packs together into a Season One bundle. Players can now buy 18 of the all-time greatest tables at an amazing discount!
There are two options. The Season One Bundle costs $29.99 - bought separately, these 18 tables would cost almost $50 - but for the serious pinball fan, the Season One Pro Bundle for $39.99 is the way to go.
The Season One bundle includes; Medieval Madness, Bride of Pin Bot, Cirqus Voltaire, Funhouse, Monster Bash, Gorgar, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Black Knight, Harley-Davidson 3rd Edition, Taxi, Elvira and the Party Monsters, No Good Gofers, Scared Stiff, Big Shot, Twilight Zone,...
43w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King has confirmed that the Pinball Arcade Twilight Zone Table is out today.
To quote: This is Bobby King from FarSight Studios, the makers of the Pinball Arcade for PS3 and PS Vita. We are super excited to announce that today, thanks to our fans, we'll be releasing our re-creation of one of the greatest pinball tables ever - Twilight Zone!
With the help of the pinball legend Roger Sharpe, who did the original table's licensing deal for Williams/Bally, we were able to get the CBS-owned rights to the TV show. This deal was too expensive for us to make the numbers work, though.
We would have lost money with the number of sales we were projecting. But thanks to our players and pinball fans all around the world who chipped in through Kickstarter.com - we got the extra money that we needed to make the deal for the Twilight Zone IP!
This is such a great table. Personally, it's my second favorite to play in our game right behind Star Trek: The Next Generation (which we'll be releasing before the end of next month, but I'm getting ahead of myself).
Twilight Zone is awesome! It's an unbelievably deep gameplay experience. One of the features...
We have four great tables running on the most accurate pinball physics engine ever developed. What's more, The Pinball Arcade will offer players the ability to buy our game (and any DLC tables) once and own it on both the PS3 and PS Vita versions!
The PS Vita version supports the front and rear touchscreen and will be a great way for people to play our game while they're on the go. We can't wait for the game to be launched on April 10th.
We can confirm that the game will run at a smooth 60 frames per second, and the lighting effects and real-time reflections make the graphics look stunning. This is the best pinball simulation we've created so far!
If you're a fan of either real pinball or video pinball, we're pretty confident that you're going to love our game. FarSight has been making digital pinball games for years!
We have received overwhelming support by the mechanical pinball community - and these are the people who insist on realism in their...
