lol... they are scared :)

Let me clarify... Standing behind your product when you are confident means you are not worried about how Betas are perceived because they are just that - betas. But when you start saying not to post screenies or videos its because you are worried how people will perceive this product. So far (and again just going on my own observations) it doesn't seem that much of a step over the mac version yet. Matter of fact it seems for now the mac version can run at a higher resolution.

What gets me is that they have had a good year since the mac version came out to think about how to tackle some of these issues and they've done nothing really. Here's hoping that when the PC build is out (what did they say - 2 weeks or so?) it has vast improvements from what i've already seen :)

Open: that just isn't how it works. Most software companies don't allow closed betas pics or vids until they are at a level they consider reflects the finished products. Whether you agree or not, many people will formulate an opinion of a screenshot as if that's the final version.

The story on why they are not running at full capacity on pc has been explained ad infinitum on the pinballarcadefans.com forums. Lets just say their hands were tied until they got the steam devkits and they couldn't get that until they were greenlighted. Sucks for sure.

personally the most hires looking tables I've played yet have been on Pinball Arcade on the ipad Retina (resolution is something like 2000x1500 squeezed into a 10" screen... WOW!)

All comments above are more than fair, just hopefully they will be more to your liking on the final version. With post processing on, they ARE too low res but I believe that will be fixed ;)

Also noticed on the video that the reflection of the ball is coming through the flipper

On the pinball arcade PC beta forum, I noticed some impatient fans griping for it to be released now. But I agree to take all the time they need until they reach a certain standard. I still hope it's out by the end of the month....but I wouldn't be surprised if it turns into October release. update: 9/29/13: they claim to want to release it soon in the next few days to weeks....I'll believe it when I see it. :)
In the mean time, just play them on your tablets and consoles.

Until then that leaves a more exclusive domain of PC pinball to FP (and even vp).
But I'm looking forward to a release of Pinball Arcade just for the missing tables from our own FP collections.

It'll be great to have access to all 3 different pinball simulators and play almost every pinball hit in good realistic quality. All have pros and cons to each other, but I'll still prefer FP due to greater number of tables to play. (FP>PA>vp).
