    I have been playing hours and hours what I consider to be the best game on PS4 right now, Pinball Arcade. The game is available on other platforms but it has been upgraded for 1080p on the PS4. It is a faithful recreation of many classic pinball machines, with all details from lights, table designs and even original sounds being accounted for.

    My only quibble is that the audio sometimes sounds low quality, but my email to support staff was answered quickly: the ps4 is playing the wrong (lower quality) sound files and this will be fixed soon in a patch.

    The game is downloadable for free from psn store. You can demo tables up to a score limit and purchase tables in packs at various prices.

    I recommend starting/demoing with the masterful table Medieval Madness to get a taste of the game. This table my family has been playing nonstop since I bought it.


    Truly a delight for pinball fans!

    A nice selection of tables too, shame I don't see some of my favorites, Diner,Tx Sector and or Mousin' Around. Still may get this though.

    Had a look (read watched the video at the end) and it looked OK. Personally I have never really got into virtual pinball at all, occasionally do not mind the real thing but there has never really been a machine anywhere I have spent time. If I have to have a pinball game though I much prefer the "could only exist as a game" type tables.

    Yeah I have always been a snob about virtual pinball, until I tried this one. They just did such a good job with the tables IMO it gets close to recreating the actual experience of playing a table. And it looks great on our tv. I would recommend giving the demo a go if you like pinball (medieval madness is a good bet if you don't have a favorite on there)

    Some of my favorites aren't here either, but they have season two tables lined up and are planning a season three after that, so there is hope! I just hope they maintain their quality standards for all seasons.

    You can tell they are very passionate about pinball, including extras like the original flyers used to advertise the tables, really helpful documentation about the features and modes of each table, etc. Also table goals for each table that give trophies and unlock the ultimate wizard goals for more trophies an harder challenge.

    Are you Scott from Rev3 Games? :P I first heard about this game through that guy. I got mad props to the devs of the game for their dedication :o

    Nope, not me. I think the devs did such a great job anyone who likes pinball can appreciate the work they put into it.
    Yeah might be cool if it was designed well...I don't mind the ps4 controller but my wife dislikes it. Sometimes the flipper keys stick which is annoying.

    We were out last weekend and found a funhouse table. Played a few rounds and my wife actually said she prefers the ps version.
