Plants vs Zombies

We know, we know -- You are anxious to get Plants vs. Zombies onto your beloved BlackBerry PlayBook, and we reported earlier in the month that it was coming, but this time it is for real. It's popping up now in BlackBerry App World for some users, so head over to the link below if you want to check it out. It will run you $6.99, but if you know anything at all about PvZ, you'll have no problem dishing out the cash. Be sure to keep on the look out, dust off that old peashooter and be ready for the game to go live if you're not seeing it yet (video review to follow!) Sound off in the comments if it's available for you.

Plants vs. Zombies making its way onto the BlackBerry PlayBook today (For real this time!)


Actually, it's dropped to only $4.99 when purchasing from Canada. $2 drop in a matter of hours, by tomorrow morning it's gonna be FREE!!! lol

I got an email today saying I'm getting a $3 refund because I bought it for $7 yesterday. So I got it for $4! Pretty awesome. This game is fantastic!

If there's one thing I've learned from EA, it's that this game will be on sale within a month or two. I have no problem paying $6.99 for it (it's an amazing game), but not when it's going to drop soon. Been burned before on Madden and Bejeweled 2 to name a few - and only by a few days!

This is excellent news!!!! Keep them coming and the haters will have to shut up.

Got it for $5.25, so Price varies by region I guess...

Now if OS 2.0 would just drop already!!!! :-)

Ya, just wait for the popularity to drop off a bit. Game of Life was $6.99 now $3.99 and Monopoly was $9.99 now $4.99.

Patience is the key.

when I go to the app world on PB, Plants vs Zombies is listed for $ 4.99 but when I open teh app to download, the price is $ 6.99 WTF???

more than likely. there's more gameplay variation and depth... but i guess compared to angry birds, that isn't saying much.

oh you basically answered my question. Means you'll have to wait some time. Your country's not eligible for the game

anyone know if america latina is going to get this one? I suffered for not having monopoly as early as other people :/

Man Im from Mexico.. I got monopoly by connecting the playbook to a VPN in US from here in Mexico.

Plants vs zombies is available for Mexico also without any special stuff.. go ahead check it out.

Interesting that it's $4.99 on the featured page but $6.99 when you click on it. I did a search for "zombie" and of course it showed up for $4.99 and when I click on it it's $4.99. Went to purchase and it came up as $6.99 :(

I'll wait, already finished it on the laptop

BlackBerry News,
BlackBerry PlayBook

We have been waiting to hear an official date for OS 2.0 a really long time from BlackBerry or a RIM employee. Ever since the first whispers of a date were published, it's all been speculation. Today though we got some official RIM confirmation. At the Developing Native Games with the BlackBerry NDK 2.0 Webcast today, Angel Aldana, RIM Manager (Latin America Alliances), confirmed the official date of PlayBook's OS 2.0 launch to be... Tuesday, February 21st! Barring any setbacks, we will have a shiny new OS on our PlayBooks in about 5 days! This is awesome.

same thing for me, 4.99 on the featured page, checking will give you 6.99 plus tax, i think i'm gon wait for that drop to 4.99, good game though, finished it but want to play it again on the gorgeous screen of my playbook
