Plants Vs. Zombies Coming to iPhone, XBLA


Tucked inside a press release heralding the retail availability of PopCap Games’ Plants Vs. Zombies is official confirmation that the game will be coming to the Xbox Live Arcade and iPhone platforms.

This should come as little surprise to anyone who has followed the success of PopCap over the years. The company is almost as notorious for porting their titles to every imaginable platform as they are for creating ridiculously simple yet addictive games.

Unfortunately no details were offered on when exactly PvZ might make the jump to Microsoft’s Xbox Live Marketplace and Apple’s App Store, nor what price points might be affixed to the game. There’s no telling how long it might take PopCap to recode PvZ for the new hardware, but we definitely expect a price point in the $10-$20 region for both iterations.

If all this talk of Plants Vs. Zombies has given you a hankerin’ for chlorophyll-laden gore, the press release also mentioned that the game can now be purchased in boxed form from retail stores in both Mac and PC flavors for $20.
