Scorching hot rumour – Terminator Salvation Pinball?

  • 1991 – Terminator 2 – Williams Pinball
  • 2003 – Terminator 3 – Stern Pinball
  • 2009 – ????????????????????????????

Respected coin-op newsletter The Stinger Report included the following line in their update today:

“Another aspect that stays the same is STERN Pinball, even after major restructuring the company came to ASI’09 with their selection of latest tables with ‘24’, ‘Indiana Jones’ and ‘CSI’ – the company still seems to be rolling with the punches, and sources spoke of another big pinball presentation for the coming ‘Terminator Salvation’ motion picture.

Reasons to believe a TS pinball might be coming…

  • Stern love licensed games.
  • They already did a Terminator sequel pinball.

Reasons to doubt a TS pinball is coming…

  • The film’s out in 3 weeks. Surely we’d have seen pictures of a TS pinball by now.
  • Stern appears to be simplifying their games. Fans would hate a “simple” Terminator pinball.

But here’s another twist in the tale.

Arcade Heroes suggested in March that there’s a TS lightgun arcade game on the way “later this year”. Now, if the gun game is coming “later” then maybe the pinball could also arrive “later”…

So – do you think T4 Pinball is coming?
Anyone got Steve Richie’s phone number?

  1. I’ve got Steve Ritchie’s number, but he’s not designing pinball machines anymore.

      Well, next time you’re chatting, please thank him for designing T2 pinball. It’s the game that first attracted my attention & coins) from videogames. 🙂
