    Having a similar issue. Bought on PS store for PS4, but I can only play the demo versions. Tried a license restore with no luck. I'm in North America.

    edit: Nevermind...fixed with the PS4 firmware update....errrg

      Really liking both tables so far...They nailed the Star Wars atmosphere especially on the ''First Order" table

        Took third place on the PS4 on the Might of the First Order table with 874 million. Had another game that came to about 850 million. Hoping to take first today

          I've haven't played it much but quickly realised the Multiball (is it called Crushing?) where you knock the ball across on the playfield under the glass is easy to start and profitable. So I played a game doing just that and nearly got a billion easily, did get boring though lol. Might be the best/safest way for a good score but I'm sure there's more interesting ways!

          Excellent tables, can't wait to play some more and check out all the features.

            Just got first with 1,234 billion . I found the multiballs to be a bit tricky since the big points come from the double supers which are really hard to hit. Even the regular jackpots can be a pain. I think that getting to wizard mode with lots of modes played is the most rewarding thing by far. However completing the Ability Test is a huge pain.
            Also Troops is actually an incredibly effective mode to get points as well. The rewards for hitting the captive ball go up very fast. If you can keep it going for a little bit and hit those loops as fast as you can you can get 20 million or more for a single captive ball freed.

              New here but yes to this! I was feeling this as I played the new tables. Rey's theme would be perfect here and the music does so much to capture the mood of a movie that it feels a shame that there are no Force Awakens themes here. Or at least none that I have heard.

              I have no doubt access to materials during development can't have been easy but now that the movie is out, any chance we'll get some themes from the movie?

              Related to that, BB-8's sounds appear to be temp sounds put in before the movie was finished. The Sphero BB-8 had the same sounds until the release of the movie and it got an update to replace them with the actual movie BB-8 sounds.

              Great tables though. As soon as I saw the movie, I found myself hoping for a Zen Pinball table and here they are.

                Just wanted to update everyone on the release - the tables are available on iOS and Google Play today. We're seeing some crashing happening on the Amazon version so we're investigating. Still no word on the Xbox 360 purchasing issues but I'll update as soon as I hear some news.

                  Just a little tip I've learned on The Force Awakens table, on the Scrap side mission when the ball enters the upper playfield (with the 2 flippers) don't use the upper flipper - if you use just the lower one the ball tends to stay up there and you can earn the Extra Ball quite easily.

                  Great table, just beat the final scene and look forward to improving my score

                  Here's the Wizard Mode if anyone's interested:

                    Looks like Microsoft has resolved the issue and the table is available for purchase on Xbox 360 in-game now. Let me know if you have any trouble downloading.

                    • 2 great tables thanks guys

                      Love the bb-8 pinball mission
                      funny to see him rolling around the table
                      Neat how background changes with the scenes

                      Like the Poe / trooper fight and flame throwers on first order too
                      Very fun and interesting to watch
                      And unique mode to push ball across the underneath play field

                        That's great man.
                        Nice save at around 1:25.
                        I can never manage saves like that during wizard mode. Especially with 2 other balls at the flippers.
                        Thanks for posting.

                          You look to be an experienced player, so I need to ask: is the semi-frantic flipper hitting during wizard mode the best strategy during a multiball like that, or is there method to the madness that I'm not seeing? I tend to choke when I have a multiball. Most of the time the balls just hit in-between lanes a lot and I feel I'm not utilizing by bonus time enough.

                            The flame thrower trooper is hilarious in my opinion

                              That's quite impressive.
                              Very carefully. Like not ch checking back here until I saw the movie. Saw it last night. Loved it. Funny thing though, my main motivation for going last night was that I really wanted to play the new tables.

                              BTW, I was the only one in the theatre. Must not be a very popular movie.

                                I know it looks like flipper spamming but I was playing each ball as best I could, when there's that many balls round the flippers the flippers do need to be used A LOT! There are some multiballs where it's best to go for controlled shots, even cradling a ball or 2 on 1 flipper while hitting accurate shots with the other. This MB doesn't really require that though.

                                My advice would be to watch some videos, TY-24 is a master at big scores during MB and has some great vids on his channel on YouTube.

                                Have fun!
