An FX2 developer said it's because they're publishing through Microsoft now, and they're not subject to Greenlight.

I feel like the Pinball Arcade guys have demonstrated some pretty serious deficiencies in the past. When they're on their game, they're great, but at other times it's pretty dismal in gameplay, graphics, UI and bugs. Their ports can be especially bad, and release dates and quality on release can be a crapshoot.

Unfortunately, "some of the most hilariously bad pinball physics around" only means that FX2 isn't as good as the only other player in the market right now, Pinball Arcade. Pinball Arcade has a pretty big nostalgia advantage, but even so I'd be hesitant to put them head and shoulders above FX2.
