Earlier this week at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, I met up with Eric Wood from Electronic Arts to have a chat about the gaming experience on BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablets. While we did cover the benefits of the 7-inch form factor and the performance of top titles like Dead Space, what I was super excited about was the sneak peek of Plants vs. Zombies – a wildly popular game that is on its way to the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet platform in the near future. I gave it a shot during the video and Eric was even kind enough to impart some wisdom and strategy for keeping those zombies off of my lawn. Check out the video above for the full scoop!

Have you played Plants vs. Zombies before? What’s your strategy? Share in the comments!
