    Default Zen Studios makes the best pinball games, but...

    I've been playing pinball since Zen Pinball on PS3. It was clearly much better than other pinball games, and it only improved since then. I bought many tables, and I played a lot split screen with my friends. Some years later I got a PS4, and I imported all my tables on Zen Pinball 2. But then Pinball FX 3 arrived. We got better graphics, but we lost split screen and we lost some tables (in my case I lost 4 tables: Plants vs Zombies, 2 South Park tables, and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2). This would not be a problem if Zen Pinball 2 would have not been removed from PS4 store. But now I permanently lost 4 tables that I have bought. I feel cheated.
    I really want to buy more tables (i.e. Jurassic Park tables look great); but I won't do it because Zen Studios might release Pinball FX4 without these tables; remove Pinball FX3 from the store, and bye my tables and money.
    I strongly suggest Zen Studios to add Zen Pinball 2 and all the tables to the PS4 store again; or find a way to add all tables to Pinball FX3. Split screen is a very important thing too. Couch playing split screen with real life friends is much better than playing with random people over internet. If you give us back what you took away from us, then we may trust you again and buy more tables.
    By the way, it would really help for not experienced players to have a tutorial of how to "bang back". Some people really dislike when randomness make them lose the ball; and knowing how to save these balls; having a tutorial where they can practice this technique; will make them play pinball much more time.

    I've spent several months away from this game,and played yesterday.
    Got 65 tables,and can only access 2 on matchplay!
    That means buying MORE tables,and then having to grind the mess that is "matchplay mode"..just not doing it!

    I can understand you feeling "cheated".While we wait for certain elements to be updated and improved,time just bombards us with more tables added,and more money to pay out!
    Just to add though...the "Stern Arcade"game,has a new version,and only one table I've bought is included! The others are on the older game,and the price there is much more expensive than FX by Zen..

    When there's FX4,the developers try to include many tables,from the previous version,but it's down to the licences,and there's not much they can do about it,if they can't get them..

    I would really recommend,judging your decisions by just buying the tables you really feel you want to play and would KEEP playing!
    After all,it's about beating YOUR highest score,and bettering it each play..
    The "old school"way 😉
