PopCap is known for it’s casual yet addictive games, and XBLA has many of these great titles but only in downloadable form. Now I’m all for companies making money, and I also know PopCap likes being available in as many areas as possible, but I wish the titles were more up to date, or maybe included everything. They include: Bejeweled 2, Peggle, Feeding Frenzy, and Astropop. I know Bejeweled 3 is out, but only available for PC, but what about giving gamers both Peggle games. And I can’t help but think “where is Plants vs. Zombies?”
Now that my small nagging fit is out of the way, PopCap Hits is an amazing collection of games for people who doesn’t use XBLA. Neil McKenna, Mastertronic’s Product Director states: “Research has shown that 30 per cent of Xbox 360 owners connected to Xbox Live have never downloaded an Arcade title – which leaves a huge audience who have never considered buying one of these universally popular games.” This actually makes the first retail disc to be a collection of Xbox Live games; They’ve had DLC packs but never a collection of XBLA games. PopCap Hits will hit store shelves on Feb. 18th.
