As such I expect that Zen pinball 2 is going to have many improvements and adjustments taken from the FX 2/Marvel Pinball base and then when FX 3 comes out, it again will be built on Zen pinball 2.
      I thought the physics of FX2 was pretty good already, I don't know if Zen needs to invest more resources to make a 3rd release. Especially considering that FX2 is available for Windows 8 already. And then Even ZP is better than the competition. Zen will be pretty busy delivering more and more tables.

      Anyway, "only" 4 more weeks to go? Oh well, at least now we have a date!! I wrote in the other thread that at the end it was going to be in September!!

        Well when the next gen Consoles come out then Zen will have a whole new set of Toys to play with, one must always strive for improvement!

On the other hand, FX 2 is on all accounts much better than Zen pinball so it would be worth the wait if FX 3 is able to iron out all the inevitable issues and make the required tweaks from Zen pinball 2 before releasing FX 3. Very interested to hear if (and how) the physics engine has been updated.

          No matter what the Popcap table is; peggle, zuma, PvsZ etc., I just really hope that it is a bit tougher than Zen's collaboration on Ms. Splosion Man... still a good table, just too easy to get to Wizard mode and long games is way too easy.

          Not to sound like a tool here, but ZP was barely got any love outside of the tables like Excalibur and Epic Quest (which also PBFX 2 got), and to top it off PBFX 2 just came out not even 2 years ago. ZP came out in '09. It was time for ZP to get some love man! It was a long time coming.

          Also I don't care if the PopCap table is hard or not. As long as we get it...that's all I care about. You also have to remember that everyone here aren't pinball wizards, so if something is too difficult, they get turned off quickly. Ms. Splosion Man wasn't too difficult at all, yet its still fun to play.

            I agree, it is pretty damn good but there is always room for some tweaking. There is still some real life moves that you can't do in FX 2.

              Although I wish we were getting ZP2 sooner, I'm glad we are getting it sooner. As for the Pinball Table, I hope it's either PvZ or Zuma. I'd settle for Bejeweled but hope its not Peggle.

                You know, I'm not sure I've ever played a PopCap game. I'm glad there will be a new table available but I'm not as amped up for this as some of you appear to be. I'm more interested in playing some of the Zen tables that I've missed out on. Great to finally have a release date to look forward to. Thanks Barbie!

                  Agree 100%. I doubt I'll even buy the new table when its first released, which will be a first for me. Unlike most people here, I haven't been too excited about the newer tables. I'm more into the "classic" style Zen tables. I'm looking forward to playing the original Zen tables without the ball physics issue.

                    It came out in late 2008 actually.

                        This is what I figured as well, reading it earlier, they have enough emphasis that it's a MEGA hit, so it can only be something like PvZ. I hope it would be Bejeweled, but it's not as big as PvZ.

                            In the PS Blog, it was noted in the comments that F4 "may" make it in time for the 9/4 release. However, they won't know for sure until we get closer to the release date.
