    Default Pinball Arcade coming on pc with cabinet support (from the horse's mouth)

    Hi All,

    I am guessing most of us have at least heard about the Pinball Arcade game thats out on just about every platform now. I play it on ios and android and I received a newsletter in my inbox yesterday, where I read this:

    Our 2013 plans include:

    • Catching the PSN and 360 table releases up to the mobile offerings
    • Releasing Pinball Arcade on Wii-U, OUYA, as a Windows 8 app for desktop and Surface tablets, and as a PC game with cabinet support
    • Being a launch title in the digital stores for any next generation consoles released later this year
    • Continuing to release new tables every month
    • Adding support for more peripherals (like 3D TVs and the iCade) and features (more tournaments and online play)
    • Some other really cool stuff we can't talk about!


    sounds like something to keep an eye on I guess :-) Probably not (immediately) with DMD? But maybe/hopefully with backglass support, and could we even ask for ledwiz/arduino/other force feedback hacks/api's or something? Probably not, but if the graphics on the phone are anything to go by, I am looking forward to trying it on my cab (but I hope they do improve ball physics a bit)....

    I want to put this on my cab so bad! I can’t wait to have VP FX2 and Pinball Arcade.
    I already have VP and FX2 just need the last one.

    The downside is they are trying to get it on Steam. Not sure if they'll release it standalone or not, but if it has to be with Steam, many will pass. I don't mind Steam, but it's not really something I want to have to have running on my cab just to run a few tables.

    Also will it require Windows 8? Not many people want to go there on cabinets.

    Probably, since they mention it in the mailing. No XP support expected Burt hopefully Win7 at least..

    Actually.....
    In the Mailing they mention it as a Windows 8 App... AND as a PC Game with Cabinet Support. Which would suggest that Yes, Win XP and 7 will be supported.

    I don't think it will require Windows 8 necessarily. It says as an app on W8 desktop/surface, and for PC's with cabinet support. The "and" makes it two separate items IMO. Regardless, I'm pretty stoked for this. It's progress!

    Damn, you beat me to it. Glad to see I wasn't the only one who read it this way.

    ah, well let's hope that's what they'll do then. Downloadable (not through steam) on winxp. Where can I sign up?

    I wonder how those would compare with the VP tables already available...
