Good news, PlayStation loyalists! The excellent Plants Vs. Zombies shooter is coming to Sony's PS3 and PS4 consoles on August 19, developer PopCap announced today.
PopCap's Brian Lindley said in a post on the PlayStation blog that the new version of the game will run at "a native 1080p resolution and blazing fast 60 frames per second" and feature some exclusive in-game goodies. A PC version is also in the works for a June 24 release.
It will be interesting to see what impact, if any, this shift to cross-platform availability will have on the great Xbox One-Vs-PlayStation 4 battle. Along with Titanfall, Garden Warfare has been warmly praised not only for being a fun multiplayer shooter, but also a compelling reason to pick up Microsoft's newest console. Also: seeing as both games are published by EA, the rapid about-face on the Garden Warfare front doesn't project a strong message about Titanfall's reign as an Xbox One-only title either.
Garden Warfare is still one of the best games for the Xbox One, mind you. But what will happen if it becomes one of the best games for the PlayStation 4 as well?
