Bejeweled sales reach 50m worldwide

Puzzle game is 10 years old today.

PopCap has announced that gem-swapping puzzle game Bejeweled has sold over 50 million units.

That apparently makes the game one of the top five best-sellers ever - a position it may improve one as a new copy is sold every 4.3 seconds.

Bejeweled turned 10 years old today, and PopCap will celebrate this birthday for the next 10 months. During that time we'll be given a new way to play Bejeweled Blitz plus be invited in on numerous competitions and promotions.

Bejeweled started life as Diamond Mine and now, 10-years later and 350 million downloads later, the game has been ported to just about every platform: iPhone, XBLA and even aeroplane consoles.
