Sony Online Entertainment has announced a deal to bring five PopCap games to PlayStation Network, starting with Bejeweled 2.

The classic match-3 puzzler came out in the US yesterday, where it costs USD 9.99, and SOE said that a European release would follow.

The other games set for PS3 treatment are Zuma, Heavy Weapon, Feeding Frenzy and Peggle, and these should make their way over here too.

Four of the five are already out on Microsoft's comparable Xbox Live Arcade service, of course, but their presence on PSN won't hurt the console's casual credentials.

As a measure of how they will turn out, the Bejeweled 2 release has four game modes, Trophy support, PSP Remote Play compatibility and 1080p visuals, which you can admire in our Bejeweled 2 PSN screenshot gallery
