Pretty much what I predicted. No release date news.

Xbox 360 Update : FarSight's contract with Fillpoint is now an asset of a bankrupt company, so they need both the consent of the creditors and the approval of the court to move the game to another publisher. The good news is that they are VERY CLOSE to getting court approval on a transfer. FarSight wishes it was happening faster (and they're more frustrated than consumers as they lose money every day the new tables aren’t available on the Xbox 360). But it will happen!

This has been an out and out disaster. I feel bad for anyone who gave them $$ for the Kickstarter campaign too.

I'm pretty much about to breakdown and buy these again on the PSN. (mainly for the portability on the Vita)


I would but as Europe got the main package as part of PS+ for the Vita, I'm holding off.

it's really pissing me off.. I want TZ bad but made the mistake of investing in Pinball Arcade on my 360 instead of my PS3. Now I really don't want to spend the $10 to start over on the PS3, but I'm stuck without the new tables.

Really hoping they get their sh*t together soon...

I'll never get my initial 800 MSP back from buying this, but I finally broke down and got the PSN version. Thankfully, I hadn't bought any DLC packs for my Xbox one before the issues. Honestly, my higher scores are on Xbox, and there is less lag to boot. But it's been such a disaster, I wouldn't trust those tables to come out any time soon on XBLA.

Sucks because I love what they are doing and believe they are honestly trying. But the mismanagement of this whole thing is crazy. For now, I'll support them on PSN.

$60 for FIVE kick ass games? With a BUNCH of extras?

And some of you are COMPLAINING about the price?

I was thinking about switching to PSN too... but then I found out that nothing on PSN will transfer to the PS4, so that plan is on hold. Would suck to buy all these tables and then *have* to keep a PS3 plugged in once I have a PS4 (which will happen eventually, certainly not anywhere near release). I might end up switching to OUYA for my console Pinball Arcade (I think it's going there, right?).... OUYA should have absolutely zero release issues. Indeed the more I think about it, the better that idea seems.

And now it's Spring 2013, they released Star Trek TNG for PS3 and STILL no word on what the hells going on with the 360 versions... Ridiculous.

I've about given up on the 360 version. waiting for the Windows 8 version which they said is soon. can use my 360 controllers on my PC and I also have a vertical/portrait monitor. Can also use the game across my laptops as well.

I have the Star Wars for Pinball FX2 on the PC and it's just so much better on a vertical monitor. the way pinball is supposed to be.

From the Pinball Arcade Facebook page:

Due to the length of the delays on the Xbox 360, we are offering to switch kickstarter backer platforms to any other platform we support. If the base game is needed to play (for example the PS3), we will be happy to provide a means to getting the base game free-of-charge. We are continuing to work with the bankruptcy court to get the legal issues with our 360 publisher sorted out, and we remain confident we will be able to release all of the new tables on the 360 soon. Please contact us at PinballArcadeStarTrekCodes@gmail.com if you'd like to switch platforms.
And thank you for supporting us!


I grew tired of waiting for the 360 release so I opted in for this. All they needed was the email address associated with Kickstarter, my new preferred platform of choice and region. Within 24 hours I had my codes for Star Trek, Twilight Zone and Pinball Arcade base game for PS3.

I'm still going to stick it out and wait for the :360: packs to drop. It's a nice (and frankly much needed) gesture but if I wanted the tables on another platform I would have bought the base game on it.

It looks like there may be another option for anyone considering moving away from the 360 version and all of the related headaches that continue to come with it. TPA got Greenlit on Steam yesterday.

I'm going to wait it out on 360 too. I already have the other tables on 360. I don't want to buy them again on PS3. Plus we know the PS4 won't play them. Maybe the 720 won't be backward compatible either, but at least I can be blissfully ignorant for the time being. LOL. Also I have them on iOS, so I can play them there to tide me over until the 360 releases.

Well, I was waiting, but maybe not any more. I've been playing TPA on PS3 due to the PS+ freebie and now am considering buying the season 1 pack and going in whole hog. I'm starting to lose hope on the 360 version. I do prefer the 360 controller, though. If you are similarly jumping ship, feel free to add me as a friend on PS3 so we can compare scores. I'm "crunchewy" there as well.

I'm thinking there's a high probability that they won't get the rest of the tables out before the end of the 360s lifespan. Legal stuff goes on and on for years.

That's my thinking as well. Especially since they offered to switch Kickstarters to another platform if they wish. I think the writing's on the wall - the 360 version is never going to see any new releases. I think it's even doubtful that the Xbox One will get a version of TPA. I think with this experience they are going to be unlikely to jump on board with the One when it has the same policies in place. AND Sony has invited Farsight to demo in their booth at E3. Sony is just being MUCH friendlier to small developers.

So... add me on your PS3. :)

They'll probably get stuff on 360 when they can. There is too much money to be made for them to just give up on it. Next gen console adaptation is going to be slow this time around, the 360 will still have a few years left even after the new one is out.

What I really came to post: There is going to be an upcoming Kickstarter for the T2 table. Was "leaked" back in November but no follow-up until just recently when a FS employee confirmed it.

T2 is a fun game. I'll probably back it, though I hope they offer some reward other than just getting the game and such, because I'll have the season pass anyway (once that is up).

New Kickstarter is up for the Terminator 2 table. http://www.kickstart...-2-judgment-day

 

Also, Farsight's publisher has filed for reorganization.  Supposedly, Xbox tables should resume before the summer is over. We will see.

The news that MS stopped charging publishers for title updates ought to help expedite the process...but who knows given the situation Farsight is in right now.

 

At least, that should be good news going ahead for the Xbox One also.

15 grand still to go on the T2 table with less than 9 days to go...don't know if this one is gonna make it. They really should have done this sooner when there was more interest in the game. I think most of the 360 crowd has long given up at this point.

The 360 crowd definitely has, and FS hasn't done themselves any favors with other issues involving KS gifts and the like across other platforms. It's really as if they bit off far more than they could reasonably chew when they started up this whole game.

 

Seems like some would rather wait until they get their house in order before investing in another KS of theirs -- but Farsight seems to be poorly managed in addition to running into a bad set of circumstances on the MS side. At some point they were going into run into resistance unless things changed, and this T2 KS may finally be the breaking point for them (or else it might just eek it out).

 

It's a shame too, because the concept and the game itself are great...or could be...

I backed it even though I essentially get nothing but my name in the credits, because I really want to see this game happen... and because I switched to the PS3 and Vita for Pinball Arcade. I recommend it if that's an option to you. I picked up the season 1 pack and will be getting the season 2 pass once I have the funds (thus why the KS doesn't really get me anything... except the opportunity to have T2K as part of the season 2 pass, which is good enough for me!)

 

If anybody switches over to the PS3/Vita, add me as a friend to compare scores: Crunchewy.

Well if nothing else, it looks like they may actually make it. Less than 5000 bucks to go, 3 days left. A lot of progress in the last few days which surprises me.

A little over 2 days left and they are at exactly 59000. Will be interesting to see if there is a stretch goal.
