The lights are on
Pinball FX2 and Zen Pinball have become popular platforms for pinball, boasting cabinets based on everything for Plants vs. Zombies, to Marvel’s Civil War comic book series. Now it’s time to add Star Wars to its stable of properties reimagined via the silver ball and cabinet.
Star Wars Pinball’s first batch of tables include Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Not just virtual pinball tables, the cabinets come to life as set pieces mirroring the movie move and make noise. Don’t be alarmed if the cabinet flashes brightly, and Luke Skywalker starts to dual Darth Vader.
The tables will release for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network for 800 Microsoft Points ($10) and $9.99. Each table is $2.99 in the Mac app store, and $1.99 a table in both the Apple app store and Google Play.
February 27 marks when gamers can jump into the world of Star Wars Pinball for all platforms excluding the PlayStation Network, which gets the tables on February 26.
The video below shows off the table inspired by The Empire Strikes Back.

I will enjoy getting this.
I don't want to wait a week, I want it now!!!
I really just wanna buy the Empire table by itself
Not into Pinball, but looks fun I guess. Interesting that it took so many years for Lucasfilm to let 'em do this. Just you wait until Episode VII pinball hits us. . .
No Wii U version?
Just imagine a pinball table that could do all of that in real life....mind blown.
SLAM!!! Playstation users take that, goh wait!
It looks cool, and Zen tables are always fun... but why couldn't they use the actual voice-overs from the movie? Disney owns the rights now and Zen has a relationship with Disney so I don't see why this would be such a problem. Darth Vader and Yoda are passable but Luke's voice over work is embarrassing. I'll still buy them and I'm looking forward to playing it -
This looks awsome!
Nice. This combined with the free 10 dollar psn money will make me very happy.
