AVATAR Pinball shipping this week

AVATAR made a crazy amount of money in theaters. As such, expectations for things like the AVATAR video game were pretty high and at the end of the day, disappointing for whomever held those expectations. It was panned critically and was even called a flop despite selling over 2 million copies(were the expectations in the 10 million range? 100 million? Higher?). Now some months after the movie was released, Stern Pinball has their newest pinball machine ready to go, based upon AVATAR.  Can AVATAR the Pinball machine take the success of the movie and turn that into sales above and beyond other pins of recent memory? We will know soon as Stern begins to ship the game out to collectors, distributors and operators around the world this week. Some people are already getting their hands on the game, as PinballNews.com has published part one of their AVATAR review. No verdict is given on how the game plays at the moment but some of the cost cutting measures are painfully obvious – from a change in the lock bar, to Jake’s static pod to the mech that lacks a figurine(but it does move). Those all may be minor issues at the end of the day and it could be a fun game to play which we will know about soon enough.

UPDATE: Stern has added the game to their site, where you can place an order for it now.
