Hi, This is my first post so I hope it helps someone as I just discovered this site a few weeks ago and everyone seems so cool and helpful :D

Williams Pinball Hall of Fame. This great Pinball game has 13 tables in the 360 version!

Gohastings.com has the 360 version for only $19.99 new and $17.99 used.
Shipping is $2.28. I'm in Missouri so counting tax etc it works out around $23 new. Amazon has this listed as $42.20. Gamestop isn't much better. Used versions on Ebay are dearer! So if you like pinball grab this. It is in my opinion as good as Pinball FX2.

I'm a new user so it won't let me post the link.:cry:

The other systems is cheap as well so you may find a bargain for them too. I only have a 360 so if you have another system hopefully you'll get a deal on this as well.

Good Luck :)

I believe gamestop had this for 9.99 for awhile. Either way its worth way more than 19.99. I'm not much of a pinball guy but I played a bit in the arcades as a kid. These tables are amazing, identical to those old games I used to play.

Like I said I'm not even really into pinball but this game is amazing. Knowing what I know now I'd pay even more for it.

I've spent countless hours playing this recently, it's totally worth $20+ (or more). The physics are very well done; I often feel like I'm standing at the table I'm playing, rather than sitting at home playing my XBox. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys pinball, you won't be disappointed. Hats off to the developers on this one :applause:

And no matter how many times I play Medieval Madness, that board always makes me chuckle ;)

I never saw this in my local gamestop at all. I do live in a small rural town. :cry:Checking online at Gamestop to be sure they don't have either 360 or ps3 version available. PSP version is $9.99

I'm looking forward to this because when I was growing up I used to hammer away at the space shuttle one in my fav boozer (solid rock cafe in Glasgow). Spent a fortune on that and booze lol.

The others I vaguely remember. I'm sure it will come back to me when I see them. Ah the golden age of Pubs and Arcades.....feeling nostalgic already..

And I agree it's a steal at this price...every review I read said it was great.

Altogether now: I'm a Pinball Wizard, there has to be twist........

A month ago I was on the hunt for a 360 copy of this and couldn't find it ANYWHERE, aside from on Amazon for some absurd price like $50 used. Then I found the goHastings listing and snagged it for $20. It seems goHastings is the only e-tailer with the 360 version still NEW and in stock.

Awesome game, definitely worth $20.

They've got it priced at $20 used now, and its availability is sparse.

I bought that game, when it first came out, to support
the devs.

They're suppose to release the Gottlieb collection,
as an XBLA release. I haven't seen any news on
that, in around a month. I'm bothered by that.

I'd like to see them team up with the Pinball FX
people, and release the games on a single
platform, instead of having to have multiple
programs for pinball.

I recall some people were able to pick this up during the Halo Reach $10 off promotion at Toys R Us awhile back. T'would've been a CAG dream come true... (listens to Pinball Wizard by The Who and loses self to music)

$20 is standard-issue price for this, I believe.
However, I absolutely love it, and couldn't recommend it more: tons of real tables, excellent modeling/physics, challenging achievements. All that's lacking is more detailed leaderboard functionality (like Pinball FX 2).

Two things you should know before buying this game.

1) It's the best pinball game I've ever played.

2) It has no support for a friends list leaderboard, making the leaderboards all but worthless.

Sad but true. It's a ridiculous thing to leave out of a game where score matters as much as it does. If that isn't a deal breaker, though, then you should absolutely pick this up. It's truly fantastic.

I bought it for $15 new, but recently it has been selling for much higher prices on ebay, so this is a probably a good deal.

Wonderful, wonderful game. The most expensive game I've ever purchased, because after getting it for $10 at Gamestop, I fell so in love with real pinball, I bought a $1500 Super Mario Bros. machine for my basement. If you've never liked video game pinball, give this one a shot; it's so much better than anything else out there, by a mile.

I have this game and it is absolutely fantastic! I used to play Gorgar, Black Knight, and a few others back in the day and loved them. These ports to the PSP and 360 are really fantastic and well worth the money. Also, the 360 version is indeed getting very hard to come by; found a copy at a local Walmart a few months ago for $20, and snagged it as an extra. These Williams classics are also much better than the Gottleib collection (which I have on PSP).

Anyone who likes pinball games and hasn't picked this up should get it now; well worth the price and getting harder to find these days!

I've seen it cheaper, but definitely worth the cost. My friends and I play this more than any other game I own. And I never cared for pinball games before. But it explains each table to you step by step, which is really the key to enjoying them.

good god I hate the vernacular of "table" when referring to a pinball machine. The real designers never used that term, it's always been machine or pin or pinball. None of this table BS!

It depends on where your from. We use pinball and table around here. Just like we use the phrase goosebumps here but where my best friend is from everyone there calls them chillbumps and it bugs me but I dont complain about it.

I've played this more than any game on the 360 or other systems. Well worth the money. I paid $40, and think this game is easily worth $60 or more.

Great game! I'm sure glad I picked this up at Amazon Warehouse Jan. 2010 -- even way before that deals thread was started on CAG. :) Surely getting my $17 worth seeing how it's in the $40+ range now.

Seriously dude? I mean, I have some pet peeves too but this is a bit over the top.

anyway, back on topic, this collection is great. Much better on 360 (and ps3 I guess) than the wii although since it's just pinball the graphics don't matter that much.

This was selling at TRU for $10 so I'm a little surprised this thread is getting so much attention.

It's sold out online at TRU and I don't recall seeing any copies the last time I was in my store. The game is apparently harder to find now, which is why this thread's here.

If you're in the market for this game and haven't had luck finding it, definitely check your local TRU - it should be < $20.

Hah the only reason this is getting so much attention is because people (like me) are popping in to say how much we love the game!
