Plants vs. Zombies Blooms on iPod: 300,000 units sold!

HorrorBlips: vote it up!

PopCap Games announced that their addictively cute game Plants vs. Zombies has sold over 300,000 units in the first nine days of sale for the iPhone and iPod Touch, making it the top-grossing iPhone launch ever.

I've been tolerating many a bus ride with Pv.Z on my iPod Touch. I actually find the touch interface far more engrossing than the point and click interface of the conventional PC version.

The press release also states that, "[a]t a retail price point of US$2.99, Plants vs. Zombies for iPhone/touch has already grossed more than US$1 million."

Not bad, PopCap. Not bad.
