    Does this mean we can finally expect a DX11 patch and hi-res textures for Bejeweled?

    I honestly thought they were already a branch of EA. Doubt much will change, just don't like England.

    You might say mm zzzzzz but its true that popcap made some addicting games over the years.
    They may lack the graphical appeal of virtual boobies but they make the kind of games where you say "oh just another level"

    I think it means more of them ;) EA wanting a cut of their profit.
    Well you now know one of the puzzles in Dead Space 3. A match 3 game where you have to clear all the screen :D

    EA is evil! I expect in the future all videogames are published by EA.

    I 'look forward to' EA finding out how to set up draconian DRM for cell phone games. Who knows, maybe we'll see limited activations on future versions of Plants vs. Zombies for instance. Or SecuROM for cell phones.

    Expect PvZ 2 will be a DLC game so if you want a peashooter you better have your credit/debit card handy

    Was there anything there to ruin in the first place? Popcrap games are like 3rd party Wii games for PC

    Sad to see Popcap go like that. Hopefully things will only get better for them, but I feel that wont be true.

    Plants vs. Zombies - Most fun game of 2010.

    i honestly enjoyed the simplicity of PvZ. plus the likes of bejeweled and diner dash are excellent time wasters. :)
