    Ya, Zen sounds like it is going to be good. Let's hope!

    I have, along with some work friends for leaderboard competition.

    I am in no way an expert in 'good' table design, and certainly no connoisseur of physics, but so far the quality has matched they're xbox360/PS3 outings, albeit perhaps with a feeling of a little less weight in the ball.

    What i have found interesting is the use of 3D, it really makes the rails and features stand out, some of the colour schemes are a bit ghastly and busy, but with the 3D on it really help define the elements of the tables.

    So much so that after playing it for a week I had a go on Pinball FX2 on my 360 and it took at least 5 minutes to get used to everything being in flat 2d again, looks like we might have a genre that definitly benefits from a 3D display, but with movement that's sedate enough that it's not fatiguing, something that's quite important during some of the longer pinball sessions i've had in the past.

    Sure, I could find plenty of ways to pick flaws in it versus playing real physical pinball, but until they make one of the HD consoles versions compatible with 3D tv's in my opinoin it;s one of the top implementations of video pinball, and at a decent price too.
    It will be interesting to see if they add extra tables with DLC, or just publish another pack of 4 as a standalone game

    next week for Zen Pinball in the U.S. eShop, hopefully it'll add all our scores to the friends leaderboard and not care about the different regions

    Like they say, "Finally". I have been anxiously awaiting this one!

    I like the first table the best so far.

    I've just found some EU boxart
    So hopefully some sort of release date is coming (if it was unlikely to happen they wouldn't likely to have gone to the effort of getting a PEGI rating, and they shouldn't really display one if it's not been assigned yet)

    How does it compare with Zen Pinball?

    Work is a necessary evil to be avoided.

    I think Williams Pinball blows Zen out of the water, just because of the camera angles. The follow angle on Williams is much better than the overhead static shot in Zen. When the ball is at the top of the table you just have no clue what is going on. Zen is not a BAD game, its still good, just Williams is better.
