Looks like quite a few people are interested in Pinball and have machines. Thanks for your interest. I'm still planning to bring all 17, but just not sure where to put them. HA

The First Responders recreation center is scheduled to open up in 2022. They do plan on having a room dedicated to games not seen in other places in TV. Pinball was mentioned as well as those old type bowling machines, electronic darts, bubble hockey, foosball, etc.

Default It's Alive!

Just finished with my Bally Little Joe and it's up and running. Quite a few mechanical issues and some playfield retouching. Also about $100 in new parts from PBR.

For reference.

(And I know in the pandemic, things you have to touch to play are not a good idea. But my question stands just for fun, discussion, and future reference. )
If by on TV you mean on a video screen, the OCULUS Quest VR player offers a pinball experience rather close to the real thing and can be mirrored to the TV while you're playing.

Is this an app? Hardware? Something possibly for a PS4? Something else?
