    Awesome news, grabbing it now! I can't wait to stream this later, thank you so much guys, this is one of my favourite tables!

    Any news on the footy tables? Even if you can only do the Zen Team due to licence issues.

    Thanks! Unfortunately no further plans for the SLF tables at this point, sorry.

    I just met the requirements for the 'You Have Mail" achievement, but it unlocked the "Combo Enthusiast" achievement from the Deadpool table instead.

    Weird.

    That is unfortunate. Is there any reason why? That is probably the table that I have wanted most for a very long time. If I were to download it elsewhere, will I later regret it because it actually does come out on the IOS Zen Pinball app, kind of like what happened with Spiderman in the Marvel Pinball app?

    Yep - I've seen a few reports of this, I'll have the team look into it. Thanks!

    We don't have the rights to publish it on mobile. :/

    That is very strange. You weren't able to to secure rights to publish PvZ on mobile? I don't have the numbers but I have to think that that total mobile sales (or downloads) of PvZ on mobile devices far exceeds any other platform. I have to imagine that was an EA or Popcap decision and not a Zen oversight. Seems like strange decision on their part to ignore a huge part of their PvZ fan base. It would only expand their brand recognition. I don't really play ZP on my iPad anymore so I don't really care and PvZ was never a favorite table of mine even though I think the adaption of the theme to pinball was really good.

    We definitely tried - sorry we couldn't make it happen. Huge bummer to us as well.

    Well popcap already shot themselves in the foot with mobile users with the ridiculous token system in PVZ 2. So I am not entirely surprised that they would shoot themselves in their other foot by not allowing a no-brainier tie-in that is the excellent zen PVZ table.

    Proof being I now have interest (read $$$) in the SW rebels show, avengers and ant man movies, and castle storm.

    Oh well. -their financial loss...

    So how bout el dorado, earth defense, v12, ninja gaiden, street fighter, agents, buccaneer, ms splosion man, extreme, nightmare mansion, rocky bull winkle, or speed machine being ported over to iOS?

    The standalone Plants Vs Zombies Pinball game was available on Android for a short time back in Feb/March on Amazon. I guess that was a mistake and it was pulled.

    That sucks that they didn't get the rights. I was hoping to get it on Google Play via Zen Pinball as an in-app table.

    I still don't know why PvZ 2 isn't available on Amazon.

    With other Xbox 360 tables that I own, the price of the Xbox One versions show as FREE, but with this one it still says $2.99. Even in the checkout it says that. Can you update the website to change the price to FREE if we own the Plants Vs Zombies Xbox 360 table?

    I don't own an Xbox One yet, but I would like to purchase the Xbox One version the same way that have done with other tables.

    Thank you.

    Once you get your Xbox, you should be able to import it if you bought the 360 version. Let me know if you still can't once you have your Xbox One set up. Also, we don't have control of the Xbox Marketplace website, only Microsoft does.

    What's with this table? I don't remember this table being this stingy on the 360. Oddly enough, can't increase the damn multipliers just like on the 360 with that old bug.

    Been playing this for the past hour+ Not one extra ball, when this table use to give them out like candy.

    I dunno, maybe because it's i haven't played it in a very long time, but I remember this table being a hell of a lot easier to play.

    The PvZ achievement issue should now be fixed, try earning the achievement again and let me know if you still have trouble.

    Default results deleted so far?

    Hi, after this achievement - fix all results so far are gone. Is this because of this update fixing the achievement problem?

    Hi, at the table the local highscores from 2 days ago are still there, but in friendslist and worldranklist they are gone. There you see only results from today. Just talked to some friends and they confirmed thiss issue.

    Just your score or all scores?

    Anyone else seeing this issue?

    I made 3 screenshots on xbox one, my gamertag there is also jan43. On the first pic you see my best local result from some days ago, 103 mio. Second screenie shows my actual friends ranklist, where no result from me is mentioned. Third pic is world ranklist, where the result is not mentioned. Maybe this is a problem caused because of your update. And thanks for your quick replies another detail: I earned the achievement already, and if you look at the icon of the table in my screenshots, this little icon for "achievement won" cannot be seen anymore...

    Just curious, will PvZ be getting its own folder, or being foldered into the Zen Collection?

    As it stands, it's just in a massive black box all on its lonesome!

    My OCD needs to where I should slot it into my twitch profile!

    Can you post links to the screenshots or just send them to support@zenstudios.com?

    On the same topic, I've always been bugged by all of the ones that have a whole pane to themselves. I think it would be much nicer to have an Other/Misc pane with all the one-off tables that don't belong to an actual collection. If there is ever a second table released for any of them, they can be moved out to their own pane.

    i thought by adding tables to "my favorites" would add them to their own pane, but apparently not the case at all since that seems to do nothing.

    It was originally available at launch of Xbox One version of PFX2 with its own green tab before being pulled. I would assume it will once more get its own tab, it was under "Plants Vs Zombies" as well as i recall back then and not say "EA" or "Popcap" as one would assume. Still all these tabs make me desire more tables to fill them out - i would rather have it "EA", Walking Dead as "Telltale Games", Portal as "Valve" etc so ideally down the line we can fill the tabs easier with other tables from the publishers getting featured even Koei-Tecmo and Capcom despite this still having just the one table so far after all this time.

    On mine it has it's own green section under Plants vs Zombies - where does yours show up? Anyone else seeing it in a black box like BBIAJ mentioned above?

    It was a black pane for me last week, now it's in it's own green pane.

    and now the favorites thing works for me.

    Its still in a nameless black column for me, to the direct left of "Zen Collections" and right of "New Releases" of which it doesnt feature either (though as a legacy table instead of technically new one its perhaps not intended to be there alongside Ant-Man and Portal).

    Weird! Let me check with the team and see if they have suggestions. If you can send a screenshot/photo of this that would be helpful. You can either post here or send to support @ zenstudios.com

    Default Plants vs Zombies Pinball is Now Available

    Last time I checked, it's still in a black box for me, will screenshot it and link to it when I get home later!

    EDIT: Booted it up just now, and the first change I see is that it's telling me that PvZ is available to download (despite the fact that I already have it, but that's by-the-by), secondly, it is now the third listed table under New Releases, and finally, it has its own (albeit MASSIVE!), green box, nestled neatly in between VALVe and KT, so I finally know where to place it on my twitch profile, thank you Zen!
