Plants-vs-Zombies-2-Its-About-Time-Logo

Plants vs. Zombies 2, the long-awaited sequel to one of the best-selling puzzle games from EA and PopCap, is finally available to download on Android, more than two months after making its debut on iOS. And like most of EA’s new mobile games, it’s a “freemium” title that won’t cost you a penny to download.

Forgetting the disaster that was Battlefield 3: Aftershock, I’ve always thought EA’s other Battlefield titles for iOS were pretty good. But the company has promised a new “high-end” and “high-performance” Battlefield title for mobile that could come a little closer to its console counterpart — and may even be able to “inter-operate” with it.

PopCap Games free-to-play Plants vs. Zombies 2 is a contentious game to many. If you’re our own good friend Buster Heine, you probably think it’s a masterpiece of a sequel, proof-positive that free-to-play can be done well in the right hands. If you’re me or my girlfriend, though, you likely think it is inferior to the first game in pretty much every way, and a perfect example of how free-to-play mechanisms can ruin an otherwise great game.

Whatever your feelings on the matter, you have to admit that getting Plants vs. Zombies 2 exclusively to iOS is quite the coup. According to EA, it’s a coup that Cupertino (get it?) was willing to pay buckets of money to get. But is that the truth?

FIFA-14

When EA Sports launched FIFA 14 for iOS this morning, I wondered how long it would be before Android users would get their hands on this year’s biggest soccer title. We’re often forced to wait several weeks — if not months — for big titles to be make their way to Google Play.

But that’s not the case with this one. To my surprise, FIFA 14 is available on Android today as well, and you can download it now — for free — from the Amazon Appstore and Google Play.

Google’s YouTube apps for Android and iOS have helped the company triple advertising sales on mobile in the past six months, the company has said. Mobile ads now contribute an estimated $350 million to YouTube’s revenue, with around a quarter of the site’s 1 billion users accessing videos on smartphones and tablets.
