Video: Plants vs. Zombies Shambles on Zen Pinball 2, New Table

100°
99w ago - Zen Studios Creative Director Neil Sorens is here with a new video showcasing Plants vs. Zombies for Zen Pinball 2 which includes a new table!

Below are the details, to quote: We are pleased to welcome ourselves – Jeff Green, Community Manager for PopCap Games and Neil Sorens, Zen Studios' Creative Director – to the show, as we dynamically tag-team this entry.

We wanted to share with you a little bit about how Zen and PopCap worked together to create the Plants vs. Zombies Pinball table, releasing today right alongside Zen Pinball 2 for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. Enough of us rambling though; take a look at the trailer.





Jeff: The first thing you need to know about this Plants vs. Zombies table is that it is built out of authentic Plants vs. Zombies bits and pieces.

We handed Zen Studios original game assets including art, sounds, objects, zombies, flowers, plants, defenses - ok, you get it - in a beautiful package of digital goodness. Zen took these and went to work designing another brilliant pinball table. We asked Crazy Dave for some wisdom to send along to Zen: "MMMMMM PINBALL".

Neil: When we first received all these assets, our excitement level went through the...
 

Video: Hands On at Gamescom 2012: Zen Pinball 2 on PS Vita

102w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a video today going hands on with Zen Pinball 2 for PS Vita at Gamescom 2012.

To quote: If you're a regular PlayStation Blogcast listener, you're probably sick to death of hearing about how much we've been playing and enjoying The Pinball Arcade on PS3 and PS Vita.

Farsight's pinball simulator faithfully recreates the experience of playing some of pinball's greatest tables, many of which are quite difficult to find in the real world.

Zen Studios has taken a different tack since debuting on PS3 (via PSN) in 2009 - the tables featured in Zen Pinball don't exist in some decrepit arcade or collector's garage. These fanciful pinball experiences don't - and simply couldn't - exist in real life.

Now Zen is upgrading the "platform" for these tables - meaning the physics engine, visuals, and social media experience - with Zen Pinball 2, coming to both PS3 and PS Vita for free next month.





I was lucky enough to be sharing a flight out to Cologne for gamescom with someone from the Zen PR team, who handed me a PS Vita loaded with a nearly complete version of the game.

With The Pinball Arcade fresh in my mind, I slipped back into...

103w ago - Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy has confirmed today that Zen Pinball 2 will be scoring on both PS3 and PlayStation Vita this September 4th with a PopCap Table!

Below are the details, to quote: We here at Zen Studios are happy to finally share Zen Pinball 2's release date with you - the game will be available for download Tuesday, September 4th on PS3 and PS Vita!

In addition, we have a great surprise for you! Our latest table creation, based on a [Register or Login to view links] mega-hit (and I do mean MEGA), will be releasing as new DLC content the same day! What might this table be?

All details will be revealed later this month during [Register or Login to view links]! If you are at the event, we invite you to stop by PopCap's booth and get first hands on with the table!

As you all probably know, we take pinball very seriously here at Zen Studios, and we see pinball development in two different parts. On one end you have the actual pinball table, which had better be fun and entertaining. We have worked hard to make sure you have an awesome selection of themes and table designs, the most advanced physics, and stellar-looking tables.

On the other end, you have the game presentation, features that make it competitive among...

108w ago - Sony PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi is here with this week's Pulse 7/3 Edition, which features Rainbow Moon, Zen Pinball 2 and more below!

To quote: Summer is a great time to game. Open the window, turn up the volume to let everybody know what you're playing.

Another way to celebrate summer gaming is to watch this edition of PULSE which features new and upcoming releases and the annual PlayStation Store Summer Sale.

Join Christina Lee for a look at Rainbow Moon - a classic looking 90′s RPG produced by the same folks who created Soldner X.

For the PlayStation Vita, Zen Pinball 2 is coming soon supporting cross-play. The PS3 version supports stereoscopic 3D and is backwards compatible for those of you who've got the original.

In PlayStation Plus news, Gotham City Imposters is now part of this month's instant game collection. Check out this zany take on the Batman universe with wacky costumes and bullet flying mayhem.

And, finally, the Top 10 features the most popular downloads of June. Not a huge surprise in the number one spot, but check out a couple surprises lower in the list.

So, watch right here or download HD, SD, and PS Vita versions from the PlayStation Store after today's update.
 

Videos: Zen Studios KickBeat Gameplay and Zen Pinball 2 Updates

50°
111w ago - Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy is here today with a KickBeat PS Vita gameplay video and some Zen Pinball 2 updates from this year's E3 convention.

To quote: Zen Studios is fresh off an exciting and successful E3. Although our presence was modest, we still made a big impact.

KickBeat for PS Vita won Destructoid's Best of Rhythm E3 award, and Zen Pinball 2 was nominated for Best of E3 2012 by IGN and Best Portable Game by Destructoid. We are extremely honored to be included alongside the industry's best!

KickBeat sure received a positive response at E3. We think it's because there is nothing else like it, and a lot of people caught on to that.

There were also some people who simply told us we were crazy when they watched us play, but once they got their hands on the game they had BIG smiles on their faces. We have some new video that was released right before and then during E3, we wanted to make sure you guys got a chance to view as well.

The first video is the intro story chapter to KickBeat, setting up our Kung Fu style cheesy story. All of these story scenes are hand animated, and yes, we hired professional voice actors. As a matter of fact, at least one of the actors we've used came by the Sony booth to say "hi," as they are all from Los Angeles.
