Hey there, PlayStation and pinball fans! We are now officially available on PS4! We're super excited that we were able to get it out in time for the holidays.

The positive response to The Pinball Arcade has been overwhelming. Reviewers have been raving about the new lighting and reworked physics which take full advantage of the PS4′s powerful hardware.

The next-gen experience is alive and well in the PS4 version of The Pinball Arcade.

Some people who own Season One basic on PS3 were not able to purchase the discounted Season One pro on PS4. To those waiting on that Season Pass discount in North America: expect a fix by Tuesday the 24th!





Thank you all so much for your support, and have fun with Pinball Arcade on PS4.

17w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King announced that Pinball Arcade PS4 is officially out tomorrow on the PlayStation 4.

To quote: The holidays are here, and we're happy to be launching Pinball Arcade on PS4 tomorrow!

We've been working hard all year on remastering and relighting the classic pinball tables in our game to take advantage of the PS4′s power. And you're getting a table on PS4 for free.

That table happens to be one of the best pinballs of all time, Tales of the Arabian Nights, which was designed and manufactured by Williams in 1996. We can't wait for people to try it who may never have tried pinball before. Pinball is a much deeper game than some people think.

Out Tomorrow

The digital version goes live this week in North America. The blu-ray is also getting delivered to a few retailers this week - a great stocking stuffer for anyone who likes pinball (hint hint).

We're launching with all of our Season One content available. That's more than 20 tables worthy of first ballot Pinball Hall of Fame inductions. In fact, nine of the top fourteen ever, according to pinside.com are available from day one on PS4. We're humbled to get to recreate these masterpieces for all of the real pinball fans out...

29w 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...
