Sony Ericsson teams up with PopCap Games

Sony Ericsson (SE) and PopCap Games have joined hands for an exclusive partnership where upcoming Xperia mini and mini pro handsets will come preloaded with some of PopCap’s biggest titles.

PopCap Games, for those who didn’t know, is the studio behind puzzle phenomenon Bejeweled. Under the agreement with SE, Xperia mini and Xperia mini pro handsets in Europe will come preinstalled with a full version of Chuzzle as well as unlimited trial versions of Plants vs. Zombies and Peggle.

Those who wish to purchase full versions of the trial titles will be able to do so via an “integrated billing service”.

Giardano Bruno Contestabile, a director at PopCap Games, said: “As the Android ecosystem matures, PopCap is committed to providing best-in-class game experiences for Android game players.”

Electronics Arts recently acquired PopCap Games for an estimated $1.3 billion (around £805 million). The takeover comes as rapid evolution of smartphone technology in a booming market continues to propel mobile gaming as a serious contender to handheld and home consoles.
