Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I bought a Nexus 7 with LTE unlocked from the US Google Play store and I later added a T-Mobile data only sim card to the device.

When I checked for PvZ2 on the play store it was not there. When I checked it on the google play website it said that "This app is incompatible with all your devices"

When I clicked Install, under Choose Your Device, it said, "This item cannot be installed in your device's country" which is absurd. I bought this device in America with the US Google Play Store and an American phone company's sim card is in the thing.

Can anyone assist me?

You should contact EA and find out why –  Qwertie Oct 21 '13 at 5:35
    
It is already out for Android. You may want to take a look at this article: http://www.gottabemobile.com/2013/10/24/plants-vs-zombies-2-now-available-andro‌​id/ –  user58342 Oct 27 '13 at 18:27

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a truly "too localised" problem (being unable to install because it hadn't been released yet in the US). –  SevenSidedDie Oct 27 '13 at 18:29

According to EA, the game is available only in Australia and New Zealand, at least for now. A full international release is scheduled to happen soon, but no date, or week, has been mentioned.

Some people have mentioned this following article as a workaround though. I cannot be sure if this works or not but you can give it a try.

Thanks, now that I know what the problem is, I feel okay waiting. I'll use the Chinese Version to tide me over –  TinyGrasshopper Oct 21 '13 at 6:02
