No Plants vs Zombies for BlackBerry? PopCap Games Says BlackBerry Not on Their Radar

blackberry playbook with plants vs zombies

The BlackBerry PlayBook is going to be an awesome gaming platform due to the fact that it will be able to run Flash, web apps and native BlackBerry apps all on the same platform. The problem, is that the message doesn’t seem to be getting out to game developers properly, because even after the announcement, major casual gaming companies like PopCap aren’t motivated to develop for BlackBerry.

According to PopCap’s director of mobile business development, “RIM today is not really on our radar.” He also added, with respect to BlackBerry devices, “They’re not great gaming machines.”

Even though the processor lacks and OpenGL isn’t consistent across devices, the QNX OS and PlayBook are going to open BlackBerry to more games and hopefully allow the company to shed this negative press they constantly get.

Do you like playing games on your BlackBerry? What games have you played recently that you enjoy?

    Flight Control running great on my Torch – I played it first on an iPad and now I am enjoying it on my BlackBerry (even if there are plenty of negative reviews in AppWorld – I like it a lot)

    No surprise. Blackberry is not on “anybody’s” radar. As far as developers not responding fast enough, well, I think they’re pretty much over BB because they have bigger fish to fry, like Android, Windows Mobile, and Palm.
