MELROSE PARK, IL -- Stern Pinball has announced that its flipper games are now available through Best Buy Co., a leading retailer of consumer electronics. Game enthusiasts can now purchase five of Stern's popular flippers online at bestbuy.com, with in-store availability planned later this year.

"Pinball is back and booming," said Stern Pinball chief executive Gary Stern. "Being available though an incredible retail channel as Best Buy brings pinball to the mainstream mass market."

Pinball games now available at the retail giant's website include Avatar, featuring a 3D backglass, speech and sound effects from the movie; the Tron: Legacy game, offering sound bites from the film's main characters and music from its original score; The Rolling Stones, with 13 original Stones songs, fast ramps and artwork featuring band members and classic album covers; and Iron Man Classic, designed exclusively for the home market (it has no coin mech), featuring visuals, speech, music and sound effects from the Marvel blockbuster films Iron Man 1 and 2.

Also available is The Rolling Stones Limited Edition, with what Stern describes as "a slew of special features" including a second set of flippers, a white ceramic ball and an individually numbered plaque with a certificate of authenticity.

Stern Pinball is the world's leading manufacturer of pinball games.
