PopCap's Bejeweled Heading To Real Life Games From Hasbro
In an unusual move, the casual videogame Bejeweled is set to become a series of physical games, from toy maker Hasbro, after EA's PopCap division and the game maker announced a deal to develop and distribute a "wide range" of physical games based on PopCap's properties. Financial details of the deal were not disclsoed, however, PopCap and Hasbro said that Hasbro will introduce two games in Spring of this year based on Bejeweled. It's fairly unusual for physical and board games to go from the digital world to real life; they tend to instead go the other way.
