They are Venom! Spider-Man’s symbiotic nemesis gets his own pinball table on PC, consoles and mobile.
Venom pinball will be coming to Zen Studios pinball platforms on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS, Android, and Amazon the week of December 8.
As Eddie Brock's journalism career spiraled downward, he always blamed Spider-Man for his own failure. A symbiotic organism from an alien world sensed his rage, and having itself been rejected by Spidey before, shared his hatred of the web-head. Thus, the Symbiote chose Brock as its next host, and together they are – Venom.
The Venom pinball table features Eddie Brock as the Symbiote-empowered villain as he faces not just his mortal enemy, Spider-Man, but also the threat of his twisted offspring, Carnage. Can Venom and Spider-Man team up to defeat a greater threat?
The Venom pinball table will also allow players to experience Carnage’s origins in an exciting mini-game, relive Spidey’s own black suit exploits with the Symbiote during an electrifying multiball event, and teach Venom a lesson by exploiting the Symbiote’s weaknesses.
Venom pinball will be available for Zen Studios pinball platforms, including Zen Pinball 2, Pinball FX2, and Marvel Pinball, the week of December 8, 2014 for $2.99/€2,99/£2.49 on PC, Mac, and consoles, and $1.99/€1,79/£1.49 on mobile platforms.

Update Regarding Pinball FX2’s Release on
First of all, we’d like to thank the Zen Studios community for their feedback on our announcement of the Xbox One version of Pinball FX2. We cannot underestimate the importance of your support, insight, and yes, even criticism regarding our projects.
Zen Studios has a few announcements to make affecting Pinball FX2 fans and particularly the Xbox One version of the game.
Microsoft and Zen Studios have taken your feedback to heart, and seeing that many of you were very upset with the news that table transfers between Xbox 360 and Xbox One would not be happening, we have some good news for you! We will be able to implement table transfers on Xbox One starting from Pinball FX2’s launch. The issues preventing us from giving our fans this functionality have been lifted, meaning that any available table on Xbox One that was previously purchased for Xbox 360 can be imported to the new version free of charge.
However, as this process will take a bit more development time for the game, we are also announcing that the Pinball FX2 version of Xbox One will see a slight delay from its original release date this week to next month. We apologize to any fans affected by this delay, but we pledge to make it up to you by incorporating this highly desired feature.
Once again, we cannot thank you enough for your support through this process, as well as Microsoft’s, who took your feedback very seriously and worked with us to implement this feature. And again, we do apologize for the delay while we create the Pinball FX2 experience that our fans both want and deserve. We’re excited to bring Pinball FX2 to Xbox One owners, to have their previous purchases honored and transferred, and we can’t wait to share with you what we’ve got coming in the future.
We thank you for your continued support!
