All you pinball fans can breathe easy, PlayStation Network is finally getting some pinball arcade action! ZEN Studios is extremely excited to announce that after all the long hours and hard work we finally wrapped up development for ZEN Pinball and have confirmed the release date for May 14, 2009.

In case you haven’t heard, Zen Pinball not only brings some intense pinball action, but it comes packed with options including several in-game missions, head-to-head online bouts and multi-day worldwide tournaments. In addition, we included a solid offering of four tables in the initial download with more to come as DLC after launch. As far as we are concerned, this is pretty much the Ferrari of pinball games. We suggest you check out the trailer to get a better visual of the game.

Also, if you want to get an exclusive look at the list of the ZEN Pinball trophies, you can do so by visiting PSU. Stay tuned for more details as they become available at www.ZENPinball.com.

  • will it have trophies and custom soucd tracks

  • I heard there’s a possibility of video chat in-game. Any information for us on that?

  • Yes! I am so excited about this game!

  • Looks cool! Read that it will be a $10 download. If so, I may pick this up.

  • Day one buy for me, looks great!

  • OOOOOOooooo I’m a sucker for pinball.

  • Very fair price for PSN game (PuzzleQuest developers take note).

    I support such initiatives and will be there with my goldfish containing platformers on.

  • Looks fun

    It has trohpies, but they didn’t mention custom soundtracks.

  • TheGuardianFID

    I was hoping it was coming out today, oh well SOLD!!!:D

  • #1, read the last sentence of the blog post. Doesn’t look like a huge collection of trophies, and they’re all bronze and silver…

  • @2…

    It is on the feature list on the linked website so not a rumour.

  • I’ve been eagerly awaiting Zen Pinball since I first heard of it months ago – great news!

    It figures that it will finally release the day I’m leaving home for a week. I sit through week after week of useless PSN kiddie stuff, and the one I really want has to wait.

  • I haven’t played a good pinball game in ages so I can’t wait for this. And yes, there will be trophies. I’ve seen the list.

  • #2 34 sec into the video you can see the video chat being used

  • Jack-Bauer-89

    Any news for a European release?

  • Will it have a demo? I don’t blindly buy PSN games. The other console has demos for all of their arcade games so we should get demos for all of our PSN games. It should be mandatory.

    If a PSN game doesn’t have a demo then I won’t buy it no matter how hyped it may be. Hype doesn’t work on me.

  • Hi still trying to get my comment heard – when will they announce the winners for the motorstorm PR competition because it seems like it is dead

    THANKS

  • The game looks pretty cool and I love pinball machines and all, but will there be a demo for it.

    Also, whats the price point?

  • ye11owpharmacy

    Hellz yeah, love pinball. I wonder how the “multi-day worldwide tournaments” are gonna work?

  • EXTRREEEEME PINBALL!

    Needs a demo.

  • Pretty cool.

  • Does it have custom soundtracks? As in playing my own music.

  • Sounds fun…..

  • Sweet I love pinball,

  • Does the new table in the DLC bring in more trophies?

  • starBlinky01

    this is pretty awesome, saw the trailer a while ago and was pretty physicked for it. I am not a huge pinball fan, but this game looks like a lot of fun.

  • Will there be a table design tool and a community where those can be uploaded for everyone to try and rate? That would be AWSOME!!!

  • Sorry, got another question…

    Will the sixaxis be used to control something? Is this game be using the unique features of the PS3 or it is just the same software as that of the 360 but just adapted to the PS3 engine?

  • now this I will buy the full version of the game for… pinball is a classic gamming icon and a must have

  • I love when people ask about trophies when they are clearly mentioned in the blog post. lol

    Anyway, it’s been so long since I’ve played pinball, but it looks like I’ll get a chance to next week.

    Highlights of the day so far: The Infamous demo was in the Hong Kong store for a short period of time. There’s a Savage Moon demo in the UK store. Hopefully the US update will be pretty wicked.

  • Very interested in this one. If $10 is the price point, that’s fair and reasonable. I’m all in.

    I would also encourage developers like D3 & Capcom to take note.

  • Looking forward to this! Very nice.

  • Will it have a demo? I don’t blindly buy PSN games. The other console has demos for all of their arcade games so we should get demos for all of our PSN games. It should be mandatory.

    If a PSN game doesn’t have a demo then I won’t buy it no matter how hyped it may be. Hype doesn’t work on me.
    Why would you need a demo of a pinball game? not saying I wouldn’t want a demo, but it’s pinball. If you played a pinball game before you’ll know how this one will play.

  • Day one buy for me. It’s why I own a PS3!

    :P

  • Vengeful-Chaos

    Hopefully it’s no more than 5 dollars.

  • @1: trophies are mandatory since january 2009, so EVERY PS3 game released after that is going to have trophies

  • @16: I completely agree, I already bought 1 awful game, PoP Classic. I can’t believe the SNES version is better. There’s $10 that won’t come back, but I won’t buy a PSN game again without playing a demo first.

  • TROPHIES??? Day 1 purchase for me if it does have them.

  • Excellent! I’ve been waiting for this game to come to PSN for a long time! :D

  • @Posted by Zsolt Kigyossy // Managing Director, Zen Studios

    Cost?

    @Jeff – Can you let the people who post that if your going to announce a game, please give us the price. Every post this week and last didn’t include a price.

  • Will there be a demo day-and-date?

  • OverlordSpike

    lol at people asking about trophies..read the blog!

  • @Sneeches

    Read the last paragraph and my previous comment, they have trophies and provided a link to read what they are.

  • ShadowOfEden

    Nice avatar Zsolt Kigyossy, I was wearing that shirt yesterday.

  • Sales + 1

  • I would of been happy with just classic pinball.

  • This game looks fun. Count me in!

  • Looks fun, but I’m guessing it will have some ridiculous price like $15+. If it’s $10 or less, I might pick it up.
