Newsbrief: Casual game giant PopCap has released a new update to its popular Plants vs. Zombies on iOS that introduces the game's first ever in-app microstransactions.

With this new update, players can purchase in-game currency in addition to earning it via gameplay, thereby giving users an opportunity to spend real-world money to accelerate their progress through the game.

Unlike PopCap's freemium game Bejeweled Blitz, Plants vs. Zombies has not become a free-to-play app following the addition of in-app purchases. The game is available for $6.99 on iPad and $2.99 on iPhone, while the in-game coin packs cost between $0.99 and $3.99.
