PopCap Hits Xbox 360, Again
March 11th will see the release of PopCap Hits: Volume 2 which contains Plants vs. Zombies, Zuma, Heavy Weapon and Feeding Frenzy 2 and at the moment, it appears to be cheaper than the first volume at amazon and a little bit cheaper at Zavvi.
The games may have previously been on offer and if so, you would have been wise to get them then, but if you missed out on any deals, a retail disk option may be better due to them costing around £6 each, less than you can buy them for on the Xbox Live Marketplace.
Mastertronic’s Product Director Neil McKenna said: “Surveys indicate millions of people are now playing casual games, with the majority playing online. The PopCap Hits series groups together selections of great casual games and makes them available off the shelf as a boxed copy. With over 60% of gamers preferring physical copies of games rather than downloads, we’re delighted to make these great casual titles available on disc to buy in store and online.”
