Once again, a thing that we promised was going to happen has happened. Pinball Rocks HD, the new pinball title/music delivery and discovery mechanism from Sony Music Entertainment (a TriplePoint client), is out now, and is flipping, bumping, and scoring to the sounds of “Richie Kotzen, Chevelle, The Sword, Filter, Red, All That Remains, Hatebreed and Nonpoint” for starters. There’s also “premium music content from artists like AC/DC, Alice in Chains, Bullet for My Valentine and Slayer available via In-App Purchase.”
From the press release:
Pinball Rocks HD innovates on both discovery and a simplified purchase process of music featured in the game. For example, the game prominently features music that rotates on an ongoing basis, and allows players to seamlessly purchase those songs directly from iTunes without having to leave the app. These songs download in the background directly to the player’s iTunes library for permanent ownership.
Sony Music previously released the best-selling and critically acclaimed titles AC/DC Pinball Rocks and Slayer Pinball Rocks which will now be offered as part of the overall Pinball Rocks HD compilation. Game add-ons such as multi-ball modes and extra ball packs will be offered as in-app purchases to enhance gameplay. Additional premium artist tables and featured music from Sony Music artists will be added over time.
For those about to lock the third ball for a chance at the jackpot, we salute you.
