i originally posted this in the other deals forum and it seemed like people were interested in it. but only a few people browse that forum. so i figured i would put it here so everyone else would know about it too.
yes its msrp but its still exciting

That's pretty exciting.

I thought this was an Arcade release?

I hope it is xbla as well, I wouldn't want to need a disc to play PvZ.

saw this on amazon the other day, but didn't know if i just get a download code or hard copy. wasn't sure. I heard the PC and Mac are also getting copies, the bonus is that they come with a zombie figurine. i might have to end up getting 360 and pc.

From what I can see, those bonuses are not limited to pre-order copies so if you want to save more, you might just want to wait until this copy hits on sale or price drop.

And to think the thriller zombie mj has been removed thanks to the estate of michael jackson. However a good price just the same.

They aren't "bonuses". It's just another variant of a pop cap disc that contains those 3 games.

Not to be a dick, but MSRP isn't a deal.

Although if you don't own any of them, the disc is a deal in that respect, so meh.

If I didn't already have Peggle and Zuma from the other Popcap discs, I'd be all over this. Waiting for the XBLA release.

I don't own any of those games and since Plants Vs. Zombies itself is $15 on XBL I'll gladly pay $20 since I'm getting Peggle and Zuma as well.

I think Plants vs Zombies is going to be $15 for XBox Live Arcade.. So if you want a hard copy and don't own Peggle (I think the disc is going to come with peggle knights to) this is a pretty damn good deal.

It is a deal if you don't own Peggle and Zuma.

Why Zuma? Isn't that on someone arcade disc? I know I have Zuma some where, actually I think I have peggle too from some other disc. Damn.

Does anyone know if Peggle and Zuma are download tokens or on the disk itself? I don't have Zuma anymore (had a disc version) and I could trade the Peggle code for another game I want.

I wouldn't pay more than $15 for this, and even that's pushing it.

The title [was] misleading. Peggle and Zuma are not pre-order bonuses. They come on the disk whether you pre-order or not. 5 years from now, if you track down the disk, all three games will be on it.

I actually like XBLA games being available on disc. I only have a 20 gig HDD and I have no interest in getting a bigger one.

Never hurts to have 'em on a disc. I can't even count the number of times I had an arcade/memory unit, sold it, then lost all my XBLA games.

Can anybody tell me if this is worth buying? I bought Plants vs. Zombies on my iPad for $9.99 and I love it. Hours and hours played. Will the xbox version have any new features?

this is what it says on gamespot
Plants vs. Zombies for XBLA will cost gamers 1,200 MS points, or $15, and will feature two new multiplayer modes, 12 achievements, and 21 minigames unique to the console version. The two new multiplayer modes are co-op and Versus mode, which were outed this weekend.

Additionally, the title will feature a new way for friends to track and share progress with each other over Xbox Live. The new social connectivity measures come in the form of customizable houses, which players can visit.


So it depends on if you think those additional features are worth 15/20 bucks

1200 spacebucks is such a detractor to buying the XBLA and owning peggle is a detractor to the disc form. If we can get confirmation on Peggle Nights on the disc im sold.

Good deal for me. Loved PvZ on the iphone, loved peggle on xbla and steam, and i really liked zuma on the old ipod video. I dont own any of them anymore and would really enjoy playing PvZ again.

I have PvZ on my iPad too and I love it. Will pre-order since I don't have Zuma or Peggle on my 360.

I too prefer disks, I have a 60GB HDD but I like physical media and the ability to share my games.

do you still have the same gamertag? You can use the License Transfer Tool to reassign the license to anything you bought to a new console, or you can re-download anything you bought and play it on any console if you are logged into Live (do not have to be Gold, except to play online multi-player).


For everyone else, these compilation discs don't install to the hard drive and play without spinning the disc. It still spins the disc.

Normally I would get the physical copy over digital. But since the wife and I can basically share the digital version on 2 systems at the same time, I will probably go that route so that we can co-op with one copy. I already have peggle as well.
