Two New Expansions Coming to The Pinball Arcade This Summer

50°
107w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King has officially announced today that two new expansions are coming to The Pinball Arcade this Summer via PSN with details below.

To quote: A lot of people are calling The Pinball Arcade the greatest pinball simulation ever created.

At FarSight, we take great pride in our work and we take this distinction very seriously. We are focused on adding a steady stream of great pinball tables into The Pinball Arcade for both PS3 and PS Vita.

It's always a pleasure to get feedback from hardcore pinball fans telling us how much they appreciate the attention to detail we put into each table. We actually own a real, physical machine of each table, which we re-create digitally. Our studio's rec room and half of our conference room are already full!

So full, in fact, that I'll be moving my favorite machine - Creature from the Black Lagoon – into my office to make room for the some others that we just bought!

We've already released four new tables with two great DLC expansions: Add-On Pack 1 ([Register or Login to view links], [Register or Login to view links]) and Add-On Pack 2 ([Register or Login to view links]
 

Videos: The Pinball Arcade Scores on PS3 and PS Vita Today

119w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King has shared some new video footage of The Pinball Arcade, which scores on both the PS3 and PS Vita console today!

To quote: With the PS3 and PS Vita launches of The Pinball Arcade on PSN this week, I thought that I'd share a few more details about our game and offer some general gameplay tips.

The launch tables include one from each of the four major manufactures that we've licensed. Tales of the Arabian Nights (Williams), Ripley's Believe It or Not (Stern), Theatre of Magic (Bally), and Black Hole (Gottlieb).

Tales and Black Hole were part of the Pinball Hall of Fame games. We've spent a lot of time improving the physics and the graphics of our pinball engine over the past few years, so we feel that they're definitely worthy of updating.

When we first made the Gottlieb collection we gathered references from the Pinball Hall of Fame in Las Vegas. We took a lot of pictures, recorded the audio with microphones, and took notes on the rules along with gameplay video reference. We actually re-programmed all of the rules from scratch.





That was a huge challenge! Now, we buy all of the tables and take them apart. Plus, we now have a bunch of physics...

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...
 

Video: Pinballistik: Build a Battle Pinball Arcade Today on PSN

142w ago - Creat Studios Technical Director Jason Benham has made available a Pinballistik video trailer spotlighting how players can build a Battle Pinball Arcade beginning today on PSN.

To quote: Creat Studios is proud to present Pinballistik, our latest PSN-exclusive game.

Pinballistik is unlike any other pinball game you've ever played - it has the first two-player Battle mode where you can face off against your friends and play on either side of the table!

In another first, you can play against AI players with varying degrees of difficulty. In a nod to the purists, we also offer challenging and full-featured single player Classic tables for each of our themed table packs.

When we tell people Pinballistik is only $3.99 for the first two Wild West-themed tables, they often ask: Is this only a mini? Does it have Trophies? Well, I can tell you that this is no mini and it has a ton of Trophies! In fact, the 'a la carte' approach we've taken has allowed us to provide 29 trophies with a total of 525 points - all for less than the price of a standard PSN title!

Pinballistik offers a ton of game configuration options. In Battle mode, either play to reach a certain point threshold or get the highest score in a time limit. You can configure penalties that are applied when...
