    Default Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection (PS2/PSP/Wii/360/PS3/3DS)

    Anyone know what the status of this Wii/PSP/PS2 title is? Release dates have come and gone several times, there's no news about it, and its not in the system for some major retailers like GameStop.

    Was hoping to get it since I enjoyed the first Pinball Hall of Fame. We've already missed out on the bonus tables Europe got when the Gottlieb one was rereleased with additional content on the Wii. Would be ashame if we never get the Williams one.

    The only place I've seen it for pre-order was playasia.com, but they charge $5 over for U.S. titles even if they're shipping to the U.S.
    Currently catching up on PSN, WiiWare, Wii U E-Shop and Xbox Live Arcade exclusives I missed.

    Wow, I totally forgot about this one. I was a big fan of the original PHOF...was waiting a while for the Williams Collection but it kept getting pushed back and back until I stopped caring.

    Hope it does come out eventually. Some great tables were supposed to be on it from what I remember.

    It came out yesterday for the PS2 and should be out for the Wii by the end of this week. Amazon has the PS2 version in stock and the Wii version can be preordered. Just a heads up, Gamestop has not stocked some of the new PS2 releases like Iridium Runners or Heavenly Guardian. Not sure the reason for this, but there it is.

    I didn't even know that there was a new Pinball Hall of Fame collection in the works. If it's true that the PS2 version was released yesterday, I'll be looking forward to adding it to my console pinball video game collection whenever I see it in a store.

    Will get this just for PINBOT.

    I played the hell out of the incredible N.E.S. version that rare made.

    Black Knight AND Pin-Bot?

    Sounds like a winner to me.

    Looks like another game that I'll have to keep my eye out for. I've always loved pinball games on the PC and even Pinball for the NES so this seems like another fun game.

    Yep, and it also has Pinbot, Gorgar, Firepower, Black Knight, Space Shuttle, Taxi, Jive Time, Whirlwind, and Sorcerer. Nice collection, but I wish Black Knight 2000 was on there. That's my favorite table of all time.

    And to the OP as to why EB/GS doesn't have this on their systems. They usually don't have budget titles on their systems.

    SWEEEEEET!!

    Definite purchase. Pinbot, Black Knight, and Whirlwind are some of my favorite tables.

    Bring on the Bally tables, now!! (specifically, Twilight Zone)

    I don't understand whay they didn't include Flash the best pinball ever
    I like Gorgar and Black Night, but Flash is my favorite.

    I hope this sucker shows up in the $14.99 value bin at K-Mart soon.

    Thanks guys

    I haven't gotten around to ordering this yet, was hoping to get it in person but I've yet to see it locally.

    Is Jive Time & Sorcerer worth paying over twice as much for the Wii version? I've seeing the PS2 version for 12.99-14.99 everywhere while the Wii version is $30, and has those two bonus tables.

    I'd buy this in a heartbeat if it had Medieval Madness on it.

    That is by far the greatest modern pinball I've ever played.

    The press site lists a release date of "2007" for Pinball Hall of Fame, but lists March 2008 for Williams Pinball Clasic.

    I got 5,000,000 on Flash when I was at FunSpot this weekend.

    I heard about this collection, it's going to be on the Wii and it'll use the motion control to tilt the tables, that sounds neat.

    Hopefully they make good reproductions of the tables. I saw the screen shot of Funhouse and Rudy looked awful. Hopefully it'll play better then it looks. If not, I'll stick to PinMAME

    Just got it in the mail today from Amazon (free shipping! woo!). Played Pinbot and Black Knight for a little bit, had a lot of fun. Wish it ran in a higher resolution, I'm not too big on the sound, and it felt like there was a slight input delay on Black Knight that I guess I got used to. Looking forward to playing more throughout the week (and especially this weekend).

    Now if only they'll do a release with Black Knight 2000.
