PopCap's Viciously Addictive Bejeweled 3 Coming To Everything, Part I

Illustration for article titled PopCaps Viciously Addictive emBejeweled 3/em Coming To Everything, Part I

The makers of great, time-stealing games like Peggle and Plants Vs. Zombies are bringing one of their biggest successes to consoles and handhelds later this year, with Bejeweled 3 making the leap to five platforms (or three, depending on your point of view).


PopCap Games will bring the latest and greatest Bejeweled to PlayStation 3, PlayStation Network, Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE, and Nintendo DS by the end of the year in North America and Europe. That's great news for people like me who have invested dozens of hours playing Bejeweled 3 and for some unexplained reason feel like doing it all over again with a game pad.

PopCap is quiet on specifics, only saying that Bejeweled 3 hits sometime between October and December and that the ports will "look great and play even better on each platform."

Bejeweled 3 is phenomenal. Each of the 6 modes (not counting Quest and Zen) have been expertly crafted to not only offer a different type of experience, but force you to fundamentally alter the way you play the game based on your given objectives. It's staggering the amount of depth and strategy that goes into the various modes at high levels of play. I'm sure most people will never look past the novelty of matching 3 colors together and assuming it's all just a random game of chance that's a fun time waster at best, but underneath the novelty is quite possibly the finest puzzle game ever created. Suck it, Tetris.
