        Typo! It was supposed to be 1500, but my copy/paste skills are lacking. I fixed it, thanks!

          This is great news for those who have been wanting this My garbage computer probably can't run it like it's suppose to run (my ati radeon hd 4350 is a bit lower in specs than the hd 3850 from what I've seen), but I may try it out anyways

              At last! Will buy every table if screen can be rotated into portrait mode. Is that possible with XP?

                We're working on implementing features like that post-launch, so yes, eventually!

                  Awesome! It looks like I'll be finally able to play that PFX2 Core Pack soon. I'm not going after the game right away, but it's definitely going to be a future purchase.

                    In some ways it's good news for those that wanted to play the PBFX2 core pack finally without having to buy an XBOX to do so. Now I will have to get a controller with shoulder buttons to be comfortable playing them on my CPU.

                    If the PBFX2 tables miraculously show up on the PS3 in the future my scores on the leader boards will go along my best scores of other tables I've purchased on the PS3, I would gladly pay for them again. The Table pack will probably be about $10 so i guess I would go ahead and purchase the tables again for the PS3. However buying all the tables on steam again would probably not be an option for me. $50 for the packs listed plus the other tables like Plants Vs Zombies, Fantastic Four, Civil War, Captain America, Sorcerers Lair, MARS, Epic Quest etc could be a bit pricey.

                      Same here! I will only buy the PFX2 Core Pack on Steam and that's it, but I will gladly double dip if it comes out on the PS3.

                        About time Zen you slow pokes about time. I will be buying every table you release because like all smart people I don't do consoles. You still need to hire more programmers though.

                          stereoscopic?

                          Are the tables playable in 3d stereoscopic?

                            Eagerly awaiting cabinet mode! It's going to be awesome.

                            I'd be interested whenever you have anything to announce regarding specific features you plan to support (I know probably not right now). It's nice to see Windows XP support there - I know a lot of cabinets run on that (though mine is Windows 7).

                            I know some features are a long shot, like support for a real DMD. But I'm hoping at least everything related to controls is nice and configurable for any key/controller/joystick. Many cabinets use Pinball Wizard kits for the buttons, plunger and nudging. The buttons are joystick presses, analog nudging is supported on the X-axis and Y-axis, and the analog plunger works on the Z-axis.

                            There is also a standalone Pinball Wizard controller for desktops that I'm sure some people would be interested in on PC if the game could be configured to use it.

                            It would also be cool if we could launch the game right into a specific table via command line. That's how the front end running on a pincab can switch between tables in different pinball titles without exiting back to windows and breaking out a keyboard/mouse.
