PopCap Games announces support for Palm Pre

If you've never played Bejeweled or Zuma before, then you might still be stuck playing Snake on your old Nokia. Garth Chouteau, a senior director of Popular mobile software company PopCap Games discussed their future in an interview yesterday, confirming their plans to bring their line of addictive games to webOS and the Palm Pre. Here's what he had to say:

"We have plans to support the Pre, as well as Android. There are games in the works for those devices. But it is certainly a kind of splintering of the market in some ways. I guess what I would say is, we think about platforms or prospective platforms in a couple of ways. One is: is this device right for one or more of our games? Is this the right kind of device for our games? Will it be a fun experience, and frankly as fun as it is on other platforms? And also, what is the audience for this particular device? And then certainly, but certainly not insignificantly, what is the install base?"

This is good news for mobile gamers everywhere, and should give a boost to gaming interest on the Pre, which is already growing. Flash support is also expected to augment the webOS game selection when it comes to Pre later this year, while emulators in development such as for Playstation and MAME could potentially provide hours of fun on the go.
