As usual, they've skipped out on Android for the time being.

 

Carmageddon came out 7 months after the iOS release, and Batman: Arkham City Lockdown came out 1.5 years after the iOS release.

I miss iOS gaming :(

Don't stress too much PvZ 2 isn't really any good, the original is much much better.

It wasn't really my point.

I know, your point was that everything is released to the Android ecosystem much later than the IOS one. I was just being nice.

So. this question coming from somebody who's never played the original...

 

Can somebody explain to me why PvZ 2 is free and PvZ is still a paid for app.? Have they added micro payments into the 2nd one or something to offset the price cost.?

 

I downloaded it yesterday purely because it was free, seems ok I suppose. Shrug.

They do indeed use a microtransaction payment system.

I honestly don't get why its exclusive to iOS, it's not like they're making money from keeping it exclusive?

 

I'd gladly play this on Android but I guess they don't want my money. Oh well.

Because there isn't as much money involved in Android gaming, so they developed it for iOS first.

It's not exclusive to iOS, they've already said they're working on other platforms. iOS brings in significantly more money than Android though, and it's easier to develop for (i.e. you don't have to test a million different devices with different screen sizes, resolutions, hardware configurations, operating system versions, etc.) so it makes sense to release it first.

Perfect answer :)

I'm just going by what the article says to be honest

 

 

Yeah, the article is misleading (well, it is CultOfMac so they usually pretend other platforms don't exist), the original Popcap blog post gives additional details:

 

Plants vs. Zombies 2 is free-to-play and initially available exclusively on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, with more platforms to be added later this year and beyond. That

I've downloaded it but yet to try it. From what I've heard though it's been spoiled with iAP.

 

Looking forward to Garden Warfare a lot more tbh.
