PopCap Games announced an agreement with Sony to deliver some of their most successful casual titles to PlayStation 3 owners via the PlayStation Network. Following the agreement, you’ll be able to try your hand at the console version of Bejeweled, Zuma, Heavy Weapon, Peggle and Feeding Frenzy – which will be released one game at a time.
The first PopCap title to get the PSN treatment is Bejeweled 2, which is available in North America only for $9.99 (but an European version will follow shortly). Bejeweled 2, the famous match-3 puzzle title brings handcrafted brainteasers which can be solved against the clock or in the “Endless mode” – but I’m sure you already know that.
“As leaders in their genre, PopCap is to casual games what SOE is to MMOs,” said John Smedley, president of Sony Online Entertainment. “Being the second largest publisher on the PlayStation Network, SOE is excited that this partnership will expand the PlayStation Network catalog with awesome casual titles that players of all types can enjoy.” So enjoy!
