The unique pinball controller with Force Feedback. Kickstarter Soon!

The controller

We are very serious about having fun. The Gibson PinStation makes playing digital pinball on PC and VR fantastic. Pull the plunger, slap the buttons and nudge the controller to save the ball. And feel the vibrations when the ball hits bumpers and slingshots. Just like the real thing. Enjoy hundreds of pinball machines…on your own desk.

The design

The PinStation is small enough to fit on any desk or comfortably on your lap. Yet wide enough to comfortably rest your hands on the lockbar and reach all the buttons. Sturdy, light and available in great designs.

Just connect the controller  to your PC and start playing. It’s Plug&Play and works with all pinball software like pinball FX/FX3, VPX and The Pinball Arcade.

The Fun

Everybody loves pinball. Adults, kids, families and friends. And a game with no violence in it is not a bad thing.

There is a renewed interest in pinball. More and more pinball machines have a digital version for PC. Combined with the rise of VR pinball, the future looks bright. So a PinStation is a good investment. And lots of fun. For many years to come!

Feel the game!

For the PinStation we designed unique force feedback that works out of the box, even with pinball FX and VPX.Now you not only hear but also feel the game. Sharp ‘twangs’ when pushing the flipper buttons,  hefty ‘bumps’ when the ball hits bumpers and slingshots and pulsed vibrations when pulling the plunger or pushing the launch button. Just like a real pinball machine. Imagine how fantastic this feels when playing!

Launch the ball

Use the plunger or launchbutton to make precise skillshots. Feeling the force feedback of a vibrating spring makes it even come more alive!


Nudging is an important feature in pinball. So slap and push the PinStation to save the ball. But don’t make it go TILT!


Use the magnasave button. Enjoy the pinball@home feeling and go for the high-score.


We are preparing for a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign early 2024. Don’t miss the start where you can get the PinStation at a discount!

To all pinball lovers

And everybody else who enjoys a good time

 Pinball is for a large part a physical game. It’s about quickly pressing the flipper buttons, nudging the machine and feeling the mechanical vibrations when trying for a highscore. That is why for digital pinball the controller is so incredibly important. Just like the special joycon controllers are for Nintendo consoles. They make the game.

our story

We are a small gaming tech company in The Netherlands. We design special products for things that we love. And we love virtual pinball! But we noticed that to really enjoy this you need a good and affordable controller. One that gives you better control and more of a real pinball feeling. One that everybody can use. There was nothing on the market that met our standards. So we designed a really good one and here we are!
