PS3, Xbox 360 Getting Some Much Needed Pinball This Summer

Kotaku: Crave's excellent Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection will be getting a pair of high-definition ports this summer, apparently. The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game just showed up at GameFly.

And you know, to the best of my knowledge, that's news. Good news, I'd think, because the Wii and PlayStation 2 versions of the collection, full of classic pinball tables like Black Knight, Fun House and Pin*Bot were surprisingly well done. Here's to hoping they expand the list to include other Bally Williams pinball classics.

The story is too old to be commented.

Nah I already got Pinball FX which does pretty fine for me, no other pinball game needed.

Yup, love PinballFX on the Xbox 360. More pinball than I need sorry Crave.

Pinball Hall of Fame has 10 pinball game recreations based on actual pinball games and PinballFX only has 3, but you can download more.

I don't have either so will have to compare PinballFX + 7 pinball levels to the 10 in the Williams Collection.

Even if they where cheap enough to buy them both, I'm thinking I'd just want whichever one is best.

How accurate is PinballFX, I mean is it more of an arcade pinball simulator, or comparable to real-world machines?

3 first, then 2 free for download if I'm right and then something like 4 to download like a Street Fighter II game.

If you don't own a pinball game already its wise to compare.

I already invested 1200 points in the game + 2 or 3 x 200 points for paid games. So I probably won't invest in another pinball game.

I don't know if I am the best one to compare with real world machines, but as far as I've seen its comparable to the real thing. Not sure if these games/machines also are playable in real world machines.

Enjoy PinballFX/360 now or Williams Pinball/PS3-360 later.

Two days ago I didn't even know about either one, so if I can't hold out till June 12, I'll just have to give FX a shot...it sounds like fun.

Thanks for the help, they both sound fun & priced right.
