Oh, and the other big news for today is that "Marvel Pinball" is now availble on PlayStation Network, following last week's arrival on Xbox LIVE Arcade via "Pinball FX2"! PS3 gamers can buy "Marvel Pinball" as a standalone game for $9.99, while "Pinball FX2" owners on 360 can buy the Marvel tables within the "Pinball FX2" platform for 800 MSP. Same prices, same levels of awesomeness, just slightly different methods of gettin' your game on.
Our friends at Zen Studios, creators of "Marvel Pinball," have this to say about the game:
"Even though we at ZEN Studios have been making video pinball games for many years, we never stop thinking of new features to make the game better. Marvel Pinball features two new scoring systems which are designed to improve social connectivity and overall competition. The challenge of beating our own personal scores and checking in on your leader board rankings is fun and all, but we thought it would be even better if you had an idea of your overall ranking in the community. To satisfy the craving, we built the Hero Score system which allows you to track your all time play records and compare to the rest of the community. What about a score that measures how good you and your friends are together? Team Force requires you to band together with friends to rule the Marvel Pinball community. Could this be the beginning of pinball guilds? Disclaimer: Don’t blame us when you start receiving a bunch of random friend requests!"
