If you've played an Atari Pong Table at the arcade, get ready for their 4-player Pong Knock Out

4-player Pong Knock Out
This successor to the electro-mechanical version of the age old game now boasts four player action!
We love the 2-player Atari Pong Table and one of our local arcades has one. Lots of fun due to it's very responsive spinner. I recently encountered a four-player air hockey table at Pinz and it was pretty cool. I can only assume four-player Pong will be just as much fun.

The new Pong Knock Out will debut at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) trade show. I'm curious to see how the angles work in terms of sending the ball to an adjacent player not just straight across. You seem to be able to put some spin on the ball to direct it's return. I'm eager to see how this works with four directions.

I'm hoping my local arcade will add Pong Knock Out to the floor!
