Ever since I was a young boy I used to play that Silver Ball...

Pinball is making a comeback but not a physical one, just a virtual one. SouthPeak Games has announced the first details of Dream Pinball,
another title bolstering its rapidly growing 2008 line-up. Dream
Pinball will be a cutting-edge pinball simulation for PC, Wii and
DS making the best use of available technologies to elevate
pinball simulations to the next level.

Available technologies? Like the L and R buttons on the DS? Oh they probably mean the dual screens. If they had a motion sensor in the cartridge you might even have an actual TILT penalty. 

 Featuring six distinctive
tables, Dream Pinball draws on the latest hardware features to provide
visuals that easily surpass previous pinball titles. HDR lighting,
motion blur and advanced particle systems generate a remarkable
graphical sheen, with selectable cameras providing one fixed and six
dynamic action-tracking camera angles. The tables themselves feature a
wide range of designs and themes, each one complete with multiple
areas, secrets, an array of special effects and spectacular three-way
multiball.

Wait a tick, can the DS and Wii even handle that type of graphics technology? I don't recall seeing any really useful motion blur on the DS, well ok except for maybe Need for Speed. I stand self-corrected. 

Dream Pinball also excels in the gameplay stakes,
with real-world physics determining the game’s ball dynamics. In a
unique spin, balls can be made from six different materials including
marble, oak, ivory and gold - each with their own distinct ballistic
properties. With a multiplayer mode allowing up to four players to
compete for points and versatile scalability options for owners with
more modest PC hardware, Dream Pinball is set to become the definitive
pinball simulation when released for PC, Wii and Nintendo DS in
February 2008.

I need to talk to Oic about this different ballistics for different ball materials thing. He's the closest thing to Tommy (that blind, deaf and dumb kid) that we have here at G:G. 

Ok ok, enough of the hype and on to the screenshots. One for each platform, you guess which is which ok? If you need help you can click them for the full versions.
