    I really hope they could stick some DLC into it, the game was over way too fast. One of those games that is enjoyable to the end.

    Not sure what you mean by that, but I would be greatly surprised to see PopCap pass up on bringing it to WiiWare, considering the success of a game like World of Goo. Plants vs. Zombies seems custom made for the Wii crowd, and it certainly isn't demanding in terms of technology. It would also, hopefully, serve to raise the bar just a wee bit more on WiiWare. I wouldn't mind seeing companies try to emulate PopCap on the platform. In any case, I'm surprised they're going to XBLA first, but then again, Microsoft probably makes the process a whole lot easier for folks to get their products up there than Nintendo does.

    The game is good and highly addicting..

    I hope it comes to the DS eventually.. it's perfect for a handheld..

    That's not going to work with sticks instead of a mouse.
    I don't think you can move fast or accurately enough.

    A graphically stripped down DS version could work.

    I hope they make a DSi version, with multiplayer and ability to make your own plants & zombies for custom levels. (Draw the plants & zombies like in Drawn to life)

    However I think this is a bit much to ask. [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure I heard a quote from Popcap somewhere that they were considering the DSi.

    I loved this on the PC.
    I don't have an 360 but I hope this port does well. ;D

    I'm not sure if I want to play Zombie nimble, Zombie quick (or similar title) stage with a controller.

    Dunno, I don't think analog sticks are the best way to go for this game. Systems like the DS and Wii are perfect for this. Especially the DSi, since I dunno if a game like this'd warrant a full price tag.
