  • Williams Pinball Classics

    Just making a thread to see how many of the PFX2 community is going to be purchasing the Pal release of PHOF Williams Collection which has been retitled for the Pal release as Williams Pinball Classics.

    I preordered the game from GAME for £25 - http://www.game.co.uk/Games/Xbox-360...nball+Classics

    I had that on order since last year, with all the madness of the delays it seems this Friday is finally the day that UK/EU will get to play this. I wont be at ease till the status says dispatched.

    So who else from the PFX2 community preordered this, and if you have the US release could you share some opinions with the rest of us.

    My Order status is still at Preorder, so I assume that means no stock yet.

    Just receieved an email from the publisher System3 which I asked if Friday's release is still on and this is their reply -

    "Hi there. The game is due for release this Friday.The game has left our warehouses, however, due to the last minute nature of the date confirmation, it's difficult to say whether all stores will have it in place on day 1.You'll need to ask the store you've pre-ordered it from.

    Best wishes,
    Chandra
    "

    Seems it is on but might not get the game day 1

            Had it pre-ordered from zavvi for a while, up at £17.85 I think. Fingers crossed for friday, although it only says processing at the mo.

            Good price though, still time if anyone wants to jump ship.

              I've been playing Williams PHOF on the PS3 again for the last few days.

              Unless the WPC edition is changed -- and I suspect it won't be -- I probably won't be getting it for the 360. When I first got the game, the physics looked good in comparison to Pinball FX 1. But it compares poorly against PFX2.

              For example, Medieval Madness is seriously out of whack, with moonball physics and shoddy flipper collision detection. And then there's the low resolution table artwork and poor texture filtering.

                I will be looking out for some reviews (hopefully some pinhead will get a review out soon as I hate these review-because-I-am-paid-to crap). From their web-site it seems that they have made some improvements from the original including improved physics, real 3D models of features and high resolution life-like artwork. My guess is, after pinball fx 2 came out, they realised (apart from the legal hold-up) that they couldn't release it as it is because people will rather buy fx 2 with the better physics and graphics and that they thus first have to improve their products standard before releasing it.

                  As long as its enjoyable Il like it, I know it wont match Zens perfection but I must support the Pinball Genre any way I can.

                  My Order is still at status - Preorder

                  I hope GAME isn't one of those who wont have stock for day 1.

                      Yeh omg if they did I would cry with joy. They should really do a Terminator 2 and Lethal Weapon 3 table again I remember they where freaking epic.

                      Just view this vid to see Terminator 2 table in action - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8vV5HJK6VY

                        GAME just sent me this in responce to a question I asked about if they have stock etc and when the product will begin shipping -

                        "Thank you for your email.

                        I can confirm that the current release date we have from the publisher is 17/06/11,

                        When a release date is not a Friday, this sometimes leads to a change in the normal process
                        Often payments are taken in advance, usually a few days before the release date and products are kept ‘on hold’ until publishers allow Game to send the product.

                        Regards,
                        Charlie S
                        The Team at GAME"

                            It's pretty tough to find pinball machines in good shape in Europe, so it's great that this game is finally coming out there.

                            BTW here is another picture of some of the tables we like to play at the office
