All that I can find is the Zomvatar (zombie avatar) maker. Are there other differences between the editions?

  • Are you talking PC version or Xbox version? I would like to know the difference between the three anyways.

  • This seems like it should be community wiki, so the community can build one complete answer.

  • Next time please use just one meaningful tag, there was no need for the plants-vs-zombies series tag.

Some that I know of:

  • New achievements
  • Steam Cloud support for those on Steam
  • The dancer zombie no longer looks like Michael Jackson
  • What is Steam (sorry to be very newbie)?

  • Steam is Valve Software's online game purchase/play network. Google "Valve Steam" ...

  • store.steampowered.com Simplest explaination: Like an iPhone's Apps store, but for the PC and limited to games. There is an install link at the top right of the page I linked to. Sep 12, 2010 at 21:39

    The Michael Jackson was removed from all versions of the game.

Blurb when the GOTY edition was released on Steam:

Plants vs. Zombies: GOTY Edition is now available with updated and expanded content including 20 new Steam Achievements, Steam Cloud support, and the interactive Zombatar™. Now with SteamPlay, Plants vs. Zombies can be played on either Mac or PC!

New info that other answers have not included:

  • Now playable on Mac if bought through steam. I presume this was not possible before?

Also note, I purchased the normal version of the game on Steam, and I believe I received a free upgrade to the GOTY edition when it came out. Steam appears to only offer the GOTY edition now, since I can't find the old version in the steam store. Good-bye Michael Jackson Zombie. ;(

    Yes, Steam upgraded the old version to GOTY... they share the same appId on Steam, so unfortunately, the old version is gone for good.

There are also new areas,zombos battles and new plants!

  • I don't play PvZ1 or 2 but I do watch videos on YouTube. Captain Hack is my favorite!

    Could you elaborate on these new things? This is a bit vague and I'm not sure these new things are different than what others have described in their answers.
