Imagine a pinball machine with no moving parts other than buttons for flippers. Imagine being able to load up any of your favorite tables from memory to play instantly. VP Cabs custom pinball machine lets you do exactly that. We had a chance to check one at at San Diego Comic-Con today, and now I have to have one.
That's a lot of money, sure, but you're getting access to countless tables that will never bust on you. And if a software problem does arise, troubleshooting can be done via wifi. You're set forever with the preloaded Pinball FX, too.
It doesn't hurt that this thing is classy as hell. If you're anything like me you'll find yourself figuring out where you'll put this in your house after trying it out.
Aside from looking great (the playfield is displayed in 1080p), the VP Cab feels fantastic. From button to virtual flipper, the action translates perfectly -- it feels completely natural. I could have spent the rest of the afternoon playing. It's that good.
If you are at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, visit Microsoft's Xbox Lounge to check out this virtual pinball experience. Photo Gallery: (6 images)
