Quoted from Nibbles:
TV probably wasn't on game mode and the filter was causing the delay from when you hit the flipper button to when it actually registers on the screen - my TV has terrible lag if I try to play the PS3 on any other mode than "Game Mode"
But Vpinball is fun for playing games that you don't see that often, and to get very familiar with the rules so when you see the game in person you already know how to play it well.
I have played both and VP is better then beat down real games. Real games that are working good are better then VP.
