    Okay guys/gals I have a question that may come off as if I'm ungrateful, but I assure you that's not the case. First let me say that I LOVE pinball. I'm average at it, but I love it nonetheless! I'm certainly no Hypno, Shogun, StevieJ, Stormtrooper...just to name a few.

    Now here my question. Today on the PS3trophies site, I made a mistake by saying that there was going to be 4 extra tables with the ZP2 release. That wasn't my intention. Someone there let me know that it wasn't the case. Here's where my question comes. Also note that I don't know if this question was asked prior to me joining.

    Now why is it that when Pinball FX 2 was released, they got tables with their release....but now where Zen Pinball 2 is released, we're only getting the Avengers pack? I don't know if Zen is using the Avengers pack as a staple to promote the "new physics and trophies" that comes with it. PBFX2 also had the achievements and such and it was free for them as well.

    I'm not ungrateful in the least bit. I'm just very curious! I also noticed that the tables that came out for the PS3 were released on the Android and 3DS, but the 360 tables weren't. I have every single table on both systems, so there's no bias here. Again, I'm just curious. Can someone please respectfully enlightened me. I know this is a lot to read on. Thank you all!
    That was me on PS3trophies You have a good question. I guess they just didn't get around to it(?) They have many other tables in the works, so maybe some of them will be PS3 exclusive, but as for new tables that come with ZP2, no new tables. Perhaps Barbie can shed a little more light on this.

        Very small XD No problem, nobody blames you, it would be awesome if there were some more exclusive tables with it, but not at release.

          Still would like to see Agents, Buccaneer, Rome etc on the PS3 and vice verse. It would be ashamed for fans of pinball on both platforms to miss-out on some interesting looking tables. I'm not sure it was barbie or whoever but the exclusivity won't lift anytime soon. Sad to say but I would buy day 1.

            Yeh it would be nice to see this happen, but of course exculsivity is part of business.

              We're a fairly small studio. Here are just a few of the projects we have going on right now:

              -Roughly 12 NEW tables from scratch
              -Putting existing tables onto new platforms like 3DS, Vita, and other mobile devices
              -Making Zen Pinball 2 for both Vita and PS3
              -Making Avengers Chronicles for PSN/Vita/XBLA
              -Making 2 non-pinball games for release this year

              I think it's safe to say that we're a bit busy

                Thank you, Barbie! When I wrote my post, I meant it in the most sincerest and respectful gesture. I know how hard you all work on the tables and it sure as heck doesn't go unnoticed. We fans appreciate everything you all do. Thank you all again! WE LOVE ZEN!!!

                  Questions:

                  -Do you include 3 or 4 trophies per table?

                  -Are there 3 bronzes with 1 silver or 2 bronzes with 1 silver per table? (I didn't like the setting in MP when some tables only had bronzes [Iron Man] and some had the silver one. [Capt. America])

                  -Do you keep the old Zen pinball music theme from Zp1? It really rocked!

                  -Is there a "My country" scoreboard that 3DS version has?

                  -Have you made any major differences with the tables? (New physics not included)

                  -Is there a table sorting option?

                  -What kind of tutorials will you add?

                  Thanks!

                    ya some of those bronze should have been silver or gold for sure and a platinum should be there too not sure if there is one i did not look i'm guessing not

                    Is there a "My country" scoreboard that 3DS version has:
                    that sounds like a great idea as a filter button feature

                        There's no platinum trophies in the game. There's a reason why we get mostly bronze trophies and that's because of the trophy score. Sony gives out a limited number trophy points per game. If they exceed that, then they can no longer release out add-ons with trophies.

                        Bronze trophies only equals 5 trophy points IIRC, while silver, gold and platinum cost far more points. I believe each game is limited to 2,500 points (counting add-ons), so Zen doesn't have a whole lot of wiggle room, especially if they are going to release out lots of new tables for this platform.

                        It's the same for the Xbox 360 and its achievements. Microsoft recently reported that they were going to bump up the limit soon.

                        Edit: If you click the link in my sig. It lists the trophy scores for each game. Zen pinball is already at 915 points and that's with only 12 tables.

                          wow that sounds incredibly lame but ya your right, so future tables may not have trophies at all

                          we are really in it for the scores and not trophies, that's how i look at it anyway

                            No! This is the reason why they use bronze (and sometimes silver) trophies. That way future tables can have trophies.

                            For example, let's say that they offer 3 trophies per table on ZP2. There will be 26 tables, so that means there will be 78 trophies when the game releases.

                            If they went with all bronze trophies, which are worth only 5 points per trophy. That will use up 390 trophy points (out of 2,500), that means that Zen will have 2,110 trophy points left over. That's plenty of points to work with for new table add-ons.

                            Now, if they went with silver and gold trophies on each table (like you're requesting), then they would run out of trophy points in no time.

                            We will most likely see a few silver trophies and possibly a gold trophy from time to time. However, don't expect to see every table to have them. I'm personally fine with bronze trophies.

                              Excellent points. Very insightful. I'm fine with bronze trophies as well then.
