Pinball Arcade… PS4… tomorrow… that is all

I feel as though a hefty weight has been lifted as Bobby King (The BK) officially talks about The Pinball Arcade coming to PlayStation 4 tomorrow when the PlayStation Store updates for North America. Although there is no Cross-Buy if upgrading to next-gen, there is a reasonable discount.
The caveat to the reasonable discount is that you must have bought ALL of the season one table packs or the complete season one pack. So long as this is the case, the season one pack for PS4 will be 50% off to you. Just check the PlayStation Store after the update has completed to ensure the discount is applied.
Other than all the sparkling bells and high definition whistles The BK talks about in his PlayStation Blog post, the biggest difference everyone will notice comes in how the game is made available to everyone in the PlayStation Store. Just like the Android or iOS versions, The Pinball Arcade is essentially a free-to-play game on PS4. It will come with Tales of the Arabian Nights absolutely free to play.
On PS3 and Vita, it was $9.99 for the base game which included four tables, with each $5 additional table pack containing one or two tables. On PlayStation 4, if you want more tables, you gotta buy the entire season 1 bundle $29.99 ($26.99 for Plus subs), or upgrade to Pro for $35.99 ($29.99 for Plus subs).
