Michael Jackson Forces 'Plants Vs. Zombies' to Change Dancing Zombie Character
"The Estate of Michael Jackson objected to our use of the 'dancing zombie' in 'Plants vs. Zombies' based on its view that the zombie too closely resembled Michael Jackson," a PopCap Games rep told MTV. "After receiving this objection, PopCap made a business decision to retire the original 'dancing zombie' and replace it with a different 'dancing zombie' character for future builds of 'Plants vs. Zombies' on all platforms. The phase-out and replacement process is underway."
iPhone 4 users thinking about updating their version of 'Plants Vs. Zombies,' however, should be warned that doing so will reportedly cause the game to crash. Those buying the game for the first time, on the other hand, should be okay. A company representative acknowledged the problem, and "a fix is in the works and should be ready soon." If you're in the market for an update, then, you should probably hold off -- and enjoy the Gloved One while you can. [From: MTV, via: RockPaperShotgun]
