Can popular virtual tables become real?

FarSight Studios are looking into creating virtual tables based on original themes. The most popular virtual tables could become real games. This makes so much sense it’s almost obvious.

Think about this: What if FarSight (or whoever) were able to get to a point where their virtual platform became essentially a form of beta test for pinball manufacturers to make real games. Stern or Jersey Jack could test out “Angry Birds Pinball” or “Candy Pinball Saga”. Once a game becomes popular enough, they could say, “guess what, we’re going to make it real! Submit your wallets!”

There would be lots of money saved in making a virtual version of a game first, and there is a lower risk of failure.
