Gibson PinStation

Kickstarting Soon!

Feels like the real thing!

The pinball controller

What is it?

The Gibson PinStation is a unique controller for playing pinball on your PC and in VR. It gives you much more of a real pinball feeling. And the custom electronics inside make it bump and vibrate while playing.


Pinball is fun! Pushing the cabinet, smashing buttons, feeling the ball hitting bumpers. All this is is what makes pinbal so unique!  When playing with a keyboard or gamecontroller you miss all this. But not anymore!

Put your hands down on the PinStation, pull the plunger to launch the ball and push the flipperbuttons to score. Feel the vibrations when the ball hits bumpers and slingshots. As you can imagine, this feels fantastic. Enjoy hundreds of pinball machines…on your own desk!

Choose from many great designs

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.

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.

Seriously fun!

The Fun

Everybody loves pinball. With the PinStation you can enjoy hundreds of pinball tables, right on your own desk!  Play with your family, friends or compete online. Play tables you remember playing long ago. Or go for new designs. A PinStation is a good investment. And lots of fun. For many years to come!

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. And believe us, this feels fantastic!


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


Nudging or pushing the cabinet is an important feature in pinball. So slap and push the PinStation to save the ball!


Use the magnasave button. Feel the force feedback. Notice how the PinStation really makes you enjoy the game!.


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