- 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?
