It looks like Electronic Arts' Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, a "weird" FPS spin on the popular strategy series, is coming to PlayStation consoles. Writing on Twitter, the EA account said: "It's time for an announcement…" Accompanying the tweet was an image of "Fly Shooter," an obvious riff on Sony's Sly Cooper series of PlayStation-exclusive action games.

EA released similar mash-up images in the past, including those for "Grass Effect" and "Dead Face 3," parodies of course of the Mass Effect and Dead Space franchises.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare launched earlier this year for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, while a PC version is due out next month. We asked PopCap Games producer Brian Lindley earlier this year if the game could one day come to PlayStation consoles, and he said, "We have nothing to announce at this point, but I always caveat that with the comment that we want to get this game in the hands of as many people as possible." Releasing it for PlayStation consoles would be a way to do just that.

EA added microtransactions to Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare in April. For more on Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, be sure to read GameSpot's review.
