269w ago - PopCap Games Vice President of Video Game Platforms Greg Canessa announced the next in a multi-title publishing deal with Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE) to bring their games to the PS3 via PlayStation Network today:

Today I'm pleased to announce the availability of our next title, the action puzzle smash hit Zuma, on PSN! Zuma is one of our biggest and most popular games of all time, and it's one of those games that truly appeals to hardcore and casual gamers alike.

It's just the right blend of action and strategy, with a healthy dose of skill and a bit of luck as well. I'm very happy with how great the game looks on the PS3 and how well the controls map to the PS3 controller.

And, like the case with Bejeweled 2, Zuma includes an absolute ton of gameplay - 13 temples, more than 50 levels of puzzle fun, Adventure and Gauntlet modes, unlockables and more. The game looks and sounds great in HD with Dolby 5.1 surround sound, and includes exclusive features like Trophy support and PSP remote play, which you'll only find on PSN.

In collaboration with our partners at SOE, the team has worked hard to bring our biggest franchises and most popular games - Bejeweled 2 and Zuma - to you first, for your immediate enjoyment...

Matching the release date with other territories was tougher than we thought, but the good thing is that I could have some interesting experiences in the game.

With Noby Noby Boy, you can send a message to other players while playing without going to the XMB, and the received messages are displayed on the body of Boy.





Checking the game spec, I sent a message requesting approval to add a friend and my request was accepted instantly, and I received a message. Below is an image of the message shown on Boy's body.

Surprise! It says, "welcome to paradise." It's such a worn-out cliché, but I like it! Exchanging messages with people via online games has become nothing special, while I don't play games much, let alone online, receiving this message really delighted me. It was even somewhat impressive because I didn't expect it and of course it proved that the messaging function was working.

Oh, I almost forgot about the game. Yes, the...
