News: Xbox 360 owners will finally get a chance to play PopCap's puzzle phenomenon.
PopCap's puzzle phenomenon Peggle is finally making its way to the Xbox Live Arcade this Wednesday. It will be available to download for 800 Microsoft Points ($10).
The XBLA version of Peggle will be the first version of the game to include online multiplayer play in both the two-player Duel Mode (which can also be played offline) and the four-player Peg Party Mode. The game will also offer plenty of options for the single-player experience with 55 stndard levels, 10 unlockable Peggle Masters, 75 Challenge Mode levels and a Quick Play Mode.
?Peggle has become a cult gaming phenomenon, crossing over and becoming as big a hit with hard core gamers as it has with casual players. This makes XBLA the perfect platform for the game,? stated Greg Canessa, VP of video game platforms at PopCap. ?With the XBLA version, we're delivering even more features that appeal to the diehard enthusiast with an incredible multiplayer experience and community elements that take Peggle to new heights. When you combine the multiplayer experience we've created with some of the online features and downloadable content support, PopCap is providing an all-new way to play Peggle competitively with room for expansion and future growth. I know about 200 people at PopCap who can't wait to see how they stack up against the rest of the Peggle universe!?
We'll have more (including a full review) soon.
