128w 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]
