Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball Inc Gary Stern says: “The combination of rock and pinball can’t go wrong. With the introduction of the virtual reality version of AC/DC pinball, we’ve put an innovative and interactive spin on our much beloved pinball game while playing tribute to one of rock and roll’s most influential and memorable bands.”

The Stern Pinball Arcade was developed in partnership with Oculus and FarSight Studios.

Along with the oculus version on PC, the table will feature on the Stern Pinball Arcade on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii-U, iOS and Android. The platform is free to download, and comes bundled with Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Additional tables, including the AC/DC version, can be purchased in-game.
