Maybe it has something to do with the DMD rendering then... I admittedly haven't played all the PBA titles, but in terms of the roms, they all seemed a bit off... barely noticeable but still something screwy.

Regardless of that, I'm not sure if android tablets and the game consoles have enough horse power to emulate the roms, especially android tablets.

In terms of the stuff they are supposed to deliver... well we'll see when it gets here. I was going to get the Wii U versions... with a secondary screen to show the DMD, ect it seemed like a no-brainer, but I was shocked to see that the second screen wasn't really taken advantage of at all, nor were the "built in" nudge controls of the Wii U gamepad. I think they need to stop making new tables for a bit and work on optimizing their engine to the various platforms they support.

I already prefer this (Unity3d) to FP, even with updated physics. It has a ways to go, but in terms of DMD/scoreboard support it already blows both visual pinball and FP out of the water.... no fiddling with the zorder of vpinmame, no focus issues, it just works.
