Get your flippin' fingers ready! It's my pleasure to announce that today ZEN Pinball Street Fighter II Tribute is making its worldwide debut as the first expansion table for ZEN Pinball.
That's right, we've coordinated our launch efforts with our friends over at Sony to make sure that our fans on both sides of the pond can experience on day one the legendary Street Fighter franchise as only ZEN Pinball can deliver. We also included a few screens below for a first look at the table!
And for everyone looking for a great value... well you can be the judge and jury! In the US you can grab the Street Fighter inspired table for only $2.49, and a mere 1.99 EURO in Europe. Not bad, right? For more information, be sure to check out the official site for ZEN Pinball at: www.zenpinball.com.
199w ago - To add more fuel on the fire of the last PS3 Slim rumor of a September 2nd European launch date, today comes the latest chapter in PlayStation 3 Slim speculation.
UK site GhostStorm (linked above) is reporting that UK chain WHSmith are currently selling PS3 consoles in-store at a reduced price of £200.
When they asked the retailer a reason for the clearance, they were told, to quote:
"We are clearing PS3s to make room for any new products that may come from Sony in the future."
So the question that now remains: Is WHSmith privy to some information on an upcoming PS3 Slim model, or is their giant clearance exercise completely unrelated to a potential PlayStation 3 Slim appearance this fall? Time will tell...
PS: Can anyone else confirm that WHSmith is selling them for £200 locally?
