    Looks like another table where we can't see who designed it, kind of like Ms Splosion Man. Any details on who did the designing? Also, looks like a really fun table! Collecting money and stuff sounds like it will be a good table.

    Shame us Euro peeps have to wait the extra day. You should all know that if you're better than me it will be because you had the extra day.

    I'll likely be posting a blog in the coming weeks that has a little more insight on the designer and producer of this table... stay tuned!

    Very nice! The design looks similar to Epic Quest.

    I already have my PSN wallet loaded with $5 to get the table.

    I'm probably dropping $26 on all the ones I don't have, which is every Zen table lol then $3 for PvZ.

    If you don't have any of the Zen 1 tables, then you will spending $30 (12 x $2.50) and another $3 for PvZ.

    I was going to say the same thing. The design looks like epic quest as far as the scheme but that's ok.

    I figured it was between PvZ and Peggle. Glad it's PvZ. Table looks fun.

    I'm glad it was plants vs zombies. It is probably my favorite popcap game on the ipad with Bejeweled a close second. The art style and color does look a lot like epic quest. Though it looks like they have a pretty literal interpretation of PvZ with actual zombies on the playfield. Not sure how I feel about that. Though it is hard to get a definite sense of gameplay and table layout with only around 15 seconds of actual game footage. I'm glad we can demo tables. I hope Crazy Dave makes an appearance.

    I did press pause throughout the game play vid to get a sense of what we might expect. It's interesting how they approached this table. Sun will come out in front of ramps for you to collect, much like the actual game. So shooting at those will give you SUN that is required to purchase the type of plants you can use. Interesting. I'm not sure how you pick the plants but the concept looks interesting. Especially when the ball turn colors based on the plant you choose.

    Perhaps there will be more vids from PAX or if anyone that is a fan went to PAX and actually played the table as they said that the table will be available to play at PAX.

    Awesome! I was hoping for this, and I may just play some PvZ on the PS3 for a bit just to celebrate now

    Thanks, Zen! Looking forward to it!

    It's funny. I used to be a hardcore PSP owner, swapping faceplates/backplates, leds in triggers, all that crap, and now we finally get the handheld of our dreams and I don't even have one yet Haha hopefully in November/December I shall have one. What's awesome is that I already have games lined up for it since there is the cross-purchase feature with certain PS3 games like Hustle Kings, TPA, etc...Gonna be sweet once I get one..........ANYWAYS ZP2 AND PVZ TABLE IN 3 DAYS WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

    Yeah the flow looks great. The flow on this table kind of reminds me of World War Hulk but with many more different options. The seed package option looks real interesting. Wonder how many different Plants will be represented. So far I see at least 5 and it looks like right/left orbit shots change type of plant to select. not sure why Challenge is flashing in the sinkhole. I think the launch button triggers cherry bombs and chile peppers that you have at the lower left side of the table.

    Interesting though I had no urge to play Zen/Marvel till ZP2 hits our hands. I was going to play some Zen/Marvel today. I'm proud to have so much control. Watching the vids will be enough for me.

    I never owned a handheld and I keep thinking how I'm disabled, stuck at home all the time but I have the big screen with surround sound - why would I need a Vita? But still... There are are these cross-platform games if I ever got one, like the ones you mentioned and others, and some games are Vita only. I suppose I could curl up with one while wifey is watching Netflix. I've just been having trouble with the price to get one for just those reasons. Maybe if there's a sale because it does look sweet. I'd love to hear other reasons, though! Not trying to derail the thread or anything - still intend to play Zen on it if I ever get one.

    I hear ya, I hardly ever really go out anywhere where I'd actually use it much, but it would be cool to walk around the house, crash on any couch I want and play some Zen lol Also, hopefully they will go on sale a little bit during black Friday.

    Oh, there's more reasons to get a Vita besides the portable games. Skype is on there, as well as a netflix app. Twitter, foursqaure, FB, music (just recently you can also make playlists too) oh and a youtube app as well! besides the browser (though, it's much like the PS3's it's at least something.) Of course you can also DL videos from the PS Store.

    I just realized that the ball is always green, so it looks like we won't even see a normal steel ball on this one lol.

I have to be honest though....for the first time, I'm not even concerned with the trophy/achievement. I just want to play the game and have fun. This is going to be AWESOME!!!!

    How many of you started playing Plants Vs Zombies again now that it's been announced for pinball? I know I did. Forgot how great the game really was back then. So simple to play. Love the fact that you can choose which plants to use for different gameplay styles.

    2 more days!
