Awesome! I’ve been playing a lot of the Earth Defense table since it came out, and I’ll pick this up as well. Hope to see more tables in the future.

I’m glad to see that you guys continue to support this game with new content, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 being my favorite. However, can you take this to the next level by giving us ZEN Pinball themed Game Launching Machines for our Personal Spaces in PS Home as well as a Zen Pinball Public Space for tournament hosting. I would imagine an arcade or a 1950s style Pinball Wizard Malt Shop. Please take this idea into consideration and run wild with it. Thanks for the awesome game and update. ZEN is definitely one of the best PSN Games.

Any improvements in audio quality over the last few tables? I expect 16-bit losslessly compressed, at least. A couple of the tables have sounded like low bitrate MP3 or something :(

Please let us know details,
Thanks!

+ WYO1016 on April 14th, 2010 at 9:39 am said:

The new tables rock! How about a new tournament, though? I’ve had the game since it came out, and the only tourney has been the Tesla table.

pinball has moved on from many years and it is very famouse

+ Xanthene on April 14th, 2010 at 10:22 am said:

@11 – The digital static/compressed sound you’re referring too for the earth defense table is supposed to be there, threw me off at first too.

Zen – looking forward to this and all future releases!

Looks good! Earth Defense was a good table as well, and THANK YOU for returning to classic generic themes. Those two licensed-theme tables were terrible. If I were 12 years old I’d probably think they were rad and kewl, but I’m not.

As an owner of real pins, I appreciate the classics. Keep it up!

+ DragonRay on April 14th, 2010 at 11:31 am said:

definitely getting this – I have had the game since day 1 and still play a few times a week and every new table makes it better .
for the full game and all 8 tables it’s less than $20 – a great deal
@zen studios — how about reviving some classic 80s/90s pinball tables from the arcades ? terminator 2 ? ghostbusters ? elvira mistress of the dark ? those were some awesome table designs and deserve to be introduced to a new generation that didn’t get to play them in the glory days of the arcade

+ Xamindar on April 14th, 2010 at 12:06 pm said:

@Subzero316 There probably will not be an Uncharted 2 table as all Zen tables are so far just ports of the x box ones, nothing new. Would be really nice to get new tables though.

DUDES!!!!! PLEASE build and release a pinball table editor for Zen pinbal. Gladly pay for one.I would love to able to create my own pinball tables and maybe even share them or trade online. PURE WIN.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!

Keep making them, and I’ll keep buying them!

Even more DLC I would buy if Sony hadn’t blocked me for not updating. Have fun not getting any more money from me.

+ midnightshade on April 14th, 2010 at 8:24 pm said:

Thanks for releasing this.. The table looks great!! I loved the Earth Defense table and sigma 2 table. Your game is the best video pinball I have played since Alien/Devils Crush on the TG-16/PC-Engine back in the early 90′s. I am loving Zen Pinball and hope you guys continue to release tables on a semi-regular basis. The price is right too. At that price you made earth defense, I will buy everyone.

+ SHINSPIKES on April 14th, 2010 at 9:10 pm said:

Cmon guys, cheaper price? Bundle cheap price? Hmm hmm?


31

+ mixedkidbx on April 14th, 2010 at 10:32 pm said:

i’ll be buying this table like i have all the others.

If possible i would like to see more tables built around old school arcade pinball tables (sorry i cant recall all the good ones from the 80′s).


32

+ nerdmanwhippy on April 14th, 2010 at 10:33 pm said:

I’ve noticed the other comments have asked as well, but any heads up on when to expect the mini golf? I wish I could say I bought your pinball, but it’s not really my type of game. However it’s definitely very nice quality, and I’d buy a mini golf game from you guys on day 1.

I’m getting this the first thing today when arrive from work

+ DeadCell34 on April 15th, 2010 at 4:18 am said:

I’m still trying to figure out what’s so fun about this game. I tried the demo and thought it was bland and boring. I guess if I want to play pinball, I’d rather play it on a real table….. that or play that old pinball game that came stock on some PC’s a few years back (I forget the name).

I am looking forward to mini golf though :)

+ ferekreni on April 15th, 2010 at 5:52 am said:

Sweet but we want table with God of War, LBP, R&C, Killzone, Uncharted, GT ?!? ;D

+ Kamahl_rg on April 16th, 2010 at 11:40 pm said:

this looks better than the other DLC tables in my opinion, i got all of them and im getting this as well

+ CDubyahS on April 17th, 2010 at 2:34 pm said:

cute im picking this up

+ devilmosh on May 1st, 2010 at 8:24 pm said:

Awesome! I just picked up the full version after playing the demo for a month – money well spent, and I plan to get the add-ons.

But… and for forgive if this has been brought up elsewhere, the full game is missing the “vibration” in the settings menu, like the demo had. The scroller hint (R1) mentions it but it’s just not there. Tesla vibrates on its own and the rest don’t. Tried re-installing it, didn’t work, and I can’t find a solution or news of it anywhere on the Net.

Anyone else have that trouble? It’s a great feature that I loved on the demo.
