It turns out that Tom’s advice for pinball fans going into the next generation was ahead of the curve. Although Zen Studios’ Pinball FX 2 is coming to the Xbox One on July 31st, it will not support cross-platform table purchases. If you purchased a table for the Xbox 360 version, you’ll need to buy it again on the Xbox One. According to the statement in the official forum, Zen said they were unable to offer the feature.
We know this is very important to fans of the Xbox 360 version, but we are very sorry to say that this was not an option made available to us on Xbox One. We always do our best to take advantage of any platform’s features whenever possible, and if a feature like cross-platform entitlement is an option for us, we will make it an option for our players. Unfortunately in this case, it was not.
Zen’s Pinball games on PlayStation do support table cross-platform licensing. Zen’s Mel Kirk promises that if Microsoft gives them the ability to offer cross-platform licensing for Xbox, they will enable it.
