Plants Vs Zombies Coming Soon to PSN!

Jeff Green's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Green on Jan 28, 2011 // Director of Editorial and Social Media, PopCap Games

Hello everyone! I have some bad news for you, courtesy of PopCap Games! The zombies are coming again, straight for your house, and they are—how should we put this—hungering for your brains. And, you know, that just can’t be good.

Plants vs Zombies for PS3 (PSN)

Yes, Plants Vs. Zombies, our splendiferous strategy game that pits loveable eco-friendly plant life against undead, traffic-cone-wearing, brain-eating zombies, is coming soon to PSN. And the only thing we can tell you, if you don’t want your brains to be part of a delicious and wholesome zombie lunch—perhaps with a side of intestines, or maybe some foie gras—is that you get your plants ready hold ‘em back.

Perhaps you did not know that plants are an effective weapon against zombies. Perhaps you weren’t aware, for example, that flinging a slab of butter from a Kernel-pult at an approaching, fly-specked, dentally-challenged zombie would temporarily freeze him in place, allowing your trusty pea-shooters to pummel him with abandon.

If you did not know this, then I humbly submit that you are woefully and shamefully ill-prepared for the upcoming apocalypse. And you only have yourself to blame. The solution? Thank you for asking. We here at PopCap recommend that you pick up Plants Vs. Zombies for PSN. It will teach you everything you need to know to stop the zombies from eating your oh-so-delicious-especially-with-a-lovely-glass-of-Chardonnay brains.

I love you too! But here on the PlayStation Blog, I think we can all agree that the PlayStation is the best platform, don’t you think?

I knew Plant vs Zombie would come to PSN sooner or later. Thanks for announcing the game. Will it be a Minis or a full game for PS3 and/or PSP?

Idk if I’m excited about this yet. I was excited about Angry Birds until I found out it was a mini, meaning no trophies, HD, etc.

excellent news! hmm large cattle prods, kinky.

@Jeff Green:

“large cattle prods. Electric ones”: What other kind are there? Acid-spewing ones?

(As a farmer’s daughter, I must point out that there are not, thankfully, acid-spewing cattle-prods.)

Plants vs Zombies takes up too much of my life on my iPod as it is. I’m not sure that this is good news. If it comes with a lot of silver and gold trophies, though, I just may change my tune.

    Yeah, I revealed my sissified, city upbringing there, didn’t I?

    Oddly, cattle prods aren’t really part of the life of middle-class LA jews. OR AT LEAST THAT’S WHAT WE TELL YOU.

Already have it for the iTouch. What’s the incentive to pick it up for the PS3 as well? Please respond. Thanks.

    Well the incentive for us is that we make more money.

    Oh, wait, you meant the incentive for YOU! Errr…well, the more versions of PvZ you have, the higher your quality of life will be. Also, you’ll just be that much more attractive to members of the opposite sex. Or same sex. Whatever you’re into, really.

    As to unique PS3/PSN features: I’m sworn to secrecy. Also, I don’t know. See above comment from me re: my uselessness.)

Shame it took so long to finally come to the PSN but either way my son would kill me if I didn’t get it for him. He wants it for every system we have.

I am curious, does this version include the Michael Jackson Thriller dance or is it the new dance effect? Not sure if Popcap ever resolved the copyright issue or not.

Dang i love how we had to wait months after the 360 version came out. so why did we have to wait for so long and i bet we still have to pay the same amount like the 360 version don’t we which is $14.99. i hate how u developers treat us like were crap to u but complain when your games don’t sell well on the ps3 i wonder why. whatever i can only imagine the bs excuse. if u even bother to answer me.

    I have no idea what the price is going to be. If it were up to me personally, I’d give it away for free, because I’m from Berkeley and a bit of a communist. I’m sorry you feel like we’re treating you like “crap”—there are always a million factors in play when developers figure out which stuff goes on which platforms, and when. In an ideal world, everything would be a simultaneous launch across all platforms, but it doesn’t always work that way. Sorry I don’t really have a better answer for you than that!
