The lights are on
Thanks to the improvements Pinball FX 2 introduced to Zen Studios' evolving digital pinball formula, the 360 has been the preferred platform for many silver ball junkies. That may change this spring. Today, the developer announced its newest pinball title will be coming to PSN, in the form of Zen Pinball 2. Here's what's new.
Zen Pinball 2 will be available as a free title update to both Zen Pinball and Marvel Pinball, and will include upgraded ball physics, new trophies, and more social integration for playing and competing with your friends. As with Pinball FX's sequel, all of your Zen Pinball table purchases will carry over into the sequel for free, and there will be demos of all 26 currently available tables alongside the update's release.
If that's not enough, Zen Pinball 2 will be simultaneously releasing on PlayStation Vita, and any purchases you make will be available on both platforms, allowing you to play a table at home or while on the go. Not a shabby bonus for Zen Pinball owners who already have a decent table library on their home consoles.
Zen Pinball 2 will launch alongside the Marvel Pinball: Avengers Chronicles pack, which you can read more about here. Now, why not check out the Zen Pinball 2 announcement trailer?

The sharing between the PS3 and Vita is amazing... keep it up Devs/Publishers! It is nice to buy a vita knowing I have 5+ games to play on it already :)
I guess I'm going to have to look into buying this, aren't I?
The Epic Quest table is Epic!!
Now it's time for me to get the first one!
Hey everyone, don't forget Pinball Arcade! I prefer it to Zen Pinball for it's perfectly recreated tables and stellar physics. Come on, Game Informer don't forget this underdog!
Awesome news! Been playing a TON of pinball lately. Are the marvel tables included? If not will Marvel Pinball receive a similar update?
Yes! Love Marvel Pinball, glad to see that it has Vita crossplay.
Finally! ps3 gettin some love
kinda nice news. ill get it
I haven't played Zen Pinball yet but now is a good time to start!
I've played Zen Pinball. I was addicted for a couple days before I stopped playing it. My interest is returning... A sequel?
As a ps3 owner I found it sad that FX did not find it's way to the ps3. I'm a fan of Zen's pinball games, I buy every table as soon as they are available. Reading about this has me really exited, especially cause I have a Vita as well, can't wait for new tables!
For some reason, I am terrible at these games :(
