Thread: Marvel Pinball tables not free after buying them for Zen Pinball 2 on PS3?

    Default Marvel Pinball tables not free after buying them for Zen Pinball 2 on PS3?

    First of all, I'd like to say I'm a big fan of Zen Studios' pinball games. Played Zen Pinball, Zen Pinball 2 and Star Wars Pinball on PS3, Vita and PS4. To complete my Zen Pinball trophy collection I was thinking of starting Marvel Pinball. I went to the PS Store to download the game and the tables. I didn't think I'd have to pay for them again as I've bought them on the PS3 already and played them in Zen Pinball 2. To my surprise I have to pay for Civil War and Fantastic Four. All other add-ons are being recognized as being bought already and they are free to download. Not so with the two I mentoined. Does anybody know why that's the case? Do I have to buy them again?

    Just like ZP2 on the PS4. Cross Buy only works one way between Marvel Pinball standalone and ZP2.

    But that's strange, because I bought every add-on on the PS3 for Zen Pinball 2 and all Marvel Pinball add-ons (Avengers Chronicles, Vengeance and Virtue and Captain America) are free for me except for those two (Civil War and Fantastic Four). Shouldn't all Marvel Pinball add-ons cost money for me according to your logic? I'm not sure I understand what you're saying.

    Did you originally purchase the ZP2 versions of the tables, or the Marvel Pinball versions? Is it possible you purchased those 2 tables for ZP2 (and not Marvel Pinball)?

    Hi Barbie, thanks for your reply. I bought all tables for Zen Pinball 2. I'm sure, because I just checked my PS Store download list. So it's strange some are free in Marvell Pinball and some are not.

    Default Same default

    Hi,

    I have the same default on Marvel Pinball, The "Fantastic Four" and "Civil War" table appears not free. I've baught them on my PS Vita under Zen Pinball II. Perhaps due to multi-system and multi software..... If you're like me (PS Vita/PS3/PS4) working on each other, maybe the numbers of unlock are reach.
    Let me explain: (ZP2 on Vita;ZP2 on PS3;ZP2 on PS4 and MP on PS3) ==> Three system and four unlock for some and 3 unlock for this two tables. But well unlocking for Star Wars Tables with the same number of three (SWP not exist on PS4).

    Thanks for the reply Gilles! I appreciate it. But I'm afraid your answer is too cryptic for me. I don't understand what you're trying to say. Do you mean that some tables are free four times and some are only free three times? And it also depends on the system you're playing on? I don't think I am following your train of thought, but your theory seems far out there .

    Edit: Or perhaps you're merely saying that you're experiencing the same problem as I am?

    Yes, that I said. Of course this two tables are unlock for me too.
    When you baught, the legal text said: "Two Home System and Two Portable Sytem", and I think (2+2=4), if you're unlock once on each system, you've unlock three time. Except if you have more than one software. If I take 4 unlock for right, maybe each time and each software turn.

    I don't think that's the case. As I've said the other add-ons are free. Only Civil War and Fantastic Four aren't. According to your logic all add-ons should cost money, but that isn't the case.

    With the way the import funtion is set up, it is supposed to work as follows:

    When Zp2 released, any tables you owned in Zp1 & the Marvel standalone were able to be "imported" to the Zp2 version for free. The first two games do not have an import tables function, so technically, if you only purchased the tables in Zp2, you wouldnt be able to import them back to Zp1 or Marvel standalone.

    I recall buying my first Marvel tables in Zp2. When i decided i would eventually take a run at the Marvel standalone trophies as well, i had to re-buy the first pack i bought in Zp2 because i could not import backwards to the Standalone from Zp2, nor did the store show the pack as purchased. So i then just bought my marvel tables from the standalone version so i got them free in Zp2.

    I see two possibilities here...is it possible when you bought the packs from the store you actually purchased the Marvel standalone versions for some packs, which would entitle you to Zp2 for free? I remember them as being somewhat easy to mistake for each other if you werent making sure which version you bought. Then if you bought Civil War & FantasticFour Zp2 versions first, it wouldnt recognize those purchases in Marvel Pinball, & thats why you have all but those two.

    Or the store glitched & is recognizing some Zp2 purchases as crossbuy to the Marvel standalone, but not all.

    I am positive I bought all packs in Zen Pinball 2. I checked my download history in the ps store today, that's why I'm sure. So it can't be the first explanation you suggested. Don't know about the store glitching though. That doesn't sound like a satisfying explanation either. Maybe Barbie can shed some light on this.
