    Sorry! I couldn't resist!
    LOL yes and your highscore is half too, cause you can play only with one side

    Don't see the ressemblance too... and hope it's different.

    I personally don't see the resemblance.

    I mean original virtual tables with a theme/story/hero doesn't appear in movies, comic books or other games. No, I didn't mean recreations of real-life tables. I also have some of them (Future Pinball etc.) but they aren't that interesting if you haven't had the chance to play real tables. There were no arcades in my place...only 1 random pinball table in a pub but I was too young back then or it was too expensive...so no locations with 10 different tables side by side

    I enjoyed playing Pro Pinball, Future Pinball and some others before Pinball FX2 came out but I like Pinball FX2 so much more, the range of tables, the controls (XBOX360 pad with rumble).

    I have some friends that are Star Wars fans but they don't like pinball at all. I agree there are some that are attracted by the theme but the gamers I know either play any pinball tables (because they love pinball) or they don't play at all. They play The Old Republic etc...

    I'd love to see a Castlestorm pinball table!

    All I can say is WOW! These pins look amazing! I am glad that Zen doesn't have to stick just to the actual movies themselves. I hated the prequels, but Lucas did ask his good buddy Spielberg if he would direct them and he declined. I too hope for some original tables, but as noted before me, big licenses attract the more casual player. Then once you're sucked in, that's it you're done. You yearn for the next release and then the next and so on. I sure do hope one of the Jedi get their own tribute table. (Hint, hint.) I look forward to this with much aplomb and don't forget Kickbeat it is really a unique and fun game. I am hoping we get Castlestorm for the PS3 as well. As usual great stuff Zen, can't wait until this releases!

    Very true, I just want to know what will Zen be bringing over to the PS4 and X1... the possibilities are endless.

    That's exactly why some of these licenses are birthed. Most of us are pinball fans already. The fact that Marvel/Star Wars tables are here is only a plus for us. However, I have spoken to those on my friend's list on the PSN who weren't pinball fans before playing these licensed tables. Guess what....now they are! Not only that, they also liked Pinball Arcade too after playing Zen Pinball 2 (although they lean towards Zen more). So it's proof that these licensed tables entice casual players to play pinball of their favorite franchise. Comics and Star Wars are pretty much geek territory (not being facetious here. I'm a proud geek! I mean no offense to anyone by that statement).

    So I guess it's both. Some people just want original IP tables, which I can understand. Then you have those who adore these licensed tables. Me?! I don't care either way.

    Indeed! I got 5 friends that have been asking me about Zen Pinball 2 after playing Star Wars Pinball (thanks to PS Plus). All five of them don't care much for pinball in general, but they are huge SW fans.

    I understand but I think Zen needs to grow the community with new players and SW fans, who are not necessary and originaly pinball players.

    I mean a SW fan can be interested by this licence and not really by an original Zen Studios table.

    But I'm with you, I'm waiting for new tables without licence. And I hope the community will grow with licences, to motivate Zen to do a original table.

I don't like Marvel at all...I like Thor or Wolverine...just for its setting and colors but regardless of the hero behind the story. Real tables such as Pasha, Rome etc. are so much better in my opinion than licensed tables limited to a hero/story...
