Pinball FX2 Arrival On Xbox One Upsets Xbox 360 Owners

/ 2 years ago


Following its update to run on the Playstation 4 platform, Zen Studios – the designers behind Pinball FX2 have announced the arrival date for the Xbox One, although they have upset a number of players who use an Xbox 360.

Unlike the Playstation platform, Xbox One owners will not be able to import ANY of the tables that they have purchased and downloaded for their 360 consoles. In a response to the disappointing news, Zen Studios have made a statement saying that the lack of an option to import DLC content was not an option that was made available to them and we presume this is down to the way the two systems work. On the other hand though, Playstation users are able to port their content from one generation to another with DLC working on both the PS3 and 4 as well as the Vita.


In a statement about the lack of cross-platform compatibility, community manager ‘BarbieBobomb’ said:

“We know this is very important to fans of the Xbox 360 version, but we are very sorry to say that this was not an option made available to us on Xbox One. We always do our best to take advantage of any platform’s features whenever possible, and if a feature like cross-platform entitlement is an option for us, we will make it an option for our players. Unfortunately in this case, it was not.”

Whilst the lack of DLC will upset a number of users, hopefully the stunning graphics will make up the dismay with 60fps, 1080p gaming on offer as well as updated achievement goals and the option to play in tournaments across the globe. Lastly the game is going to be free to download, but whatever way you look at it all, the lack of a DLC import option is likely to turn a few heads away.

    I remember misspending my youth playing pinball on the genuine Gottlieb and Bally electro-mechanical tables at 5p a pop. Those were the days.
