EA has bought casual gaming giant PopCap Games in a deal worth $1.3 billion.
Casual games like Peggle and Bejeweled help ease the symptoms of clinical depression, according to a new study.
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.
Sony has restocked the PSN cupboards ahead of the Eurovision Song Contest weekend.
Sony Online Entertainment has announced a deal to bring five PopCap games to PlayStation Network, starting with Bejeweled 2.
PopCap Games has claimed that Bejeweled is the most popular casual series of the century, with Bejeweled and Bejeweled 2 collectively selling over 25 million units since early 2000.
There are two stories here. One is that Microsoft is releasing a compilation of six full Xbox Live Arcade titles on disc, and that you'll be able to get your hands on it here in the UK on September 15th. It should go for £24.99, although we've seen it listed at £19.99, so hunt around.
