Plants vs. Zombies Leads An Invasion Of PSN Titles

Like Angry Birds, Plants vs. Zombies is one of those titles whose popularity you question until you actually try it.  At its core it shares common elements with a tower defense game (yeah, the same genre that overpopulate your smart phone’s app store).  But PVZ separates itself from that crowd almost immediately with a unique charm and personality, not to mention an arsenal of plants at your disposal (48 types).  That’s correct… you will defend your lawn from the invading zombies by planting various seeds that will yield unique plants (anything from zombie-eating plants, to the type that set everything on fire).  Your enemies are not limited to the standard (walk slowly and moan) zombies either.  Plant vs. Zombies throws 26 different zombie classes your way, including, but not limited to, dancing zombies and the aquatic abominations.  Look for Plants vs. Zombies in the PlayStation Store early this year.

But the PSN invasion does not stop there.  Sony Online Entertainment also unveiled a list of titles that will make their way to the PlayStation Store throughout the year.

Acceleration of Suguri X Edition : SOE and Rockin’ Android team up once more to bring the ultimate in anime-style robot-fighting to the PlayStation Network. In Acceleration of Suguri X Edition, players take on the role of a scorned robot to maneuver through arcade storylines and battle other robots.

Slam Bolt Scrappers : Developed by Fire Hose Games, Slam Bolt Scrappers is an intense building and brawling mash-up, exclusive to the PlayStation Network.  Players aim to construct the greatest towers in Slam Bolt City while defending against devious baddies and epic bosses.

Akimi Village: Developed by NinjaBee, players obtain blueprints, gather resources and construct a village to help rid Akimi Island of lingering gloom in this PlayStation Network exclusive.

Sideway : Set against the gritty art culture in New York City, Sideway follows the adventures of Nox, a 2D rebellious young artist, as he navigates the 3D urban streets. This audacious new PlayStation Network exclusive by Playbrains  and Fuel Industries is scheduled to launch this spring.

Rochard: Players embrace the gravity-bending exploits of space miner John Rochard as he discovers the first proof of extra-terrestrial life. Developed by Recoil Games, Rochard combines space exploration and puzzle-solving in a side-scrolling single player experience.

There certainly appears to be a little something for everyone on this list, and the exciting news is that we will be getting Plants vs. Zombie soon.  The game has already enjoyed great success on the PC, smart phones, and Xbox 360.
