It's almost like they JUST. DON'T. STOP. over a Zen Studios when it come to churning out content. It seems like just last week we were telling you about Avenger's Chronicles, the latest expansion for Marvel Pinball as well as a stand-alone game for the Vita.

But they kept working, and today comes the announcement that Zen Pinball 2 is right around the corner for both the PS3 and the Vita. Now, here's the thing... Zen Pinball 2 will be free for owners of any of the previous Zen Studios pinball game, and at first it won't add any new tables, but instead incorporate all the existing tables from the previous games into one new package. All existing tables will be upgraded with all the bells and whistles including:

- PlayStation®3 system and PlayStation®Vita system cross-platform entitlement including shared global leaderboards, online friend challenges and tournaments

- The most advanced ball physics simulation to date

- Compete against other players to achieve the highest ProScore™, and team up with your friends to increase your TeamScore™

- Exceptional visuals in full 3D on 3D compatible TV sets

- Free, fully playable demos for all available tables

- Exciting multiplayer modes, including local split-screen and hotseat multiplayer, online, and worldwide tournaments

- New tables released regularly through the PlayStation®Store

- Share your scores on Facebook

- New rule sheets to help you achieve higher scores

- New trophies for each table

To make that a little bit clearer, Zen Pinball 2 will be free, but the only tables it comes with are ones you already own. You'll be able to sample all existing tables, and if you don't already own any, you'll be able to purchase the ones you want within the game. All tables you own will be playable on both the PS3 and the Vita for one price, and new tables will be released regularly (something we have no difficulty believing give Zen's track record).

Sounds great to us!
