As another contender to try for the MS Pinball crown, Crave Entertainment announced that Pinball Hall of Fame -- The Williams Collection (follow-up to 2004's Gottlieb Collection) is in stores now for PSP, PS2, and Wii.  These are faithful, digital recreations of the legendary Williams tables of the 1980s to include Gorgar, the first-ever talking pinball machine, Black Knight, which introduced "Magna-Save" and Bonus Ball, and Space Shuttle which (for some reason that escapes me, and isn't expounded upon in the press release) "took the pinball industry by storm in 1984."
