Peggle confirmed for Xbox Live Arcade

ESRB also lists SF Alpha PSN and others.

The US Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) is crying out for attention again, hinting at a quartet of upcoming Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network releases including Street Fighter Alpha and Peggle. (Update: And it looks like they're onto something, as a PopCap rep has confirmed the latter as an XBLA release set for Q2 2008 in conversation with Shacknews.)

PopCap's Peggle will be a lovely treat - we adored it on the PC - and Street Fighter Alpha is listed for PSP and PS3. That would follow the pattern established by the likes of GripShift of PSP releases being kicked up to the mothership's online store - and, while Capcom couldn't confirm anything, it is an interesting prospect.

However, PSN owners and their XBLA-watching counterparts are still waiting for the release of Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, though, which - along with Capcom's other downloadable titles Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, Talisman and Rocketmen: Axis of Evil - were trailed heavily in advance, so if Alpha is on the way it probably won't happen any time soon.

Even less can be said about the Xbox Live fate of Ultra Bust-A-Move, with Joystiq speculating that it may be an Xbox Original.

Meanwhile, we tried to get in touch with Codemasters about Bliss Island - also listed for 360 by the ESRB and previously released on PC and PSP - but to no avail. We'll let you know when we hear back. But we reckon it's true, for reasons Microsoft would tell us off about for elaborating on.
