The core game of Pinball FX 2 will be made available for free, with the ability to import tables from the original title in the series, which launched on the XBLA in 2007. Although there is now a gap in the current promotion, the press release outlining the delay still makes a point in referring to Pinball FX 2 as part of the Game Feast campaign, which next will add Super Meat Boy to its digital platter on October 20.
Tomorrow the XBLA will add both Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode One and Dead Space: Ignition.
According to Microsoft Games Studios lead producer Mark Coates, the decision was made to delay the game to "take a little extra time to ensure the launch of Pinball FX 2 is absolutely perfect."
We suspect the real reason is because the MGS team is trying to set insane high-scores before releasing the game to the public. But we're conspiracy theorists when it comes to "pinball controversy."
