EA has purchased PopCap

Well, it's official - EA has purchased casual gaming giant PopCap for approx. $750 million USD. Here are some details via GamePro:

EA confirmed the acquisition in a press release, which has been rumored for a few weeks now. The price is $650 million plus $100 million in stock and a multi-year earn-out.

With this acquisition, EA adds popular casual gaming titles Bejeweled, Plants vs. Zombies and Peggle to their lineup, which should make them even more formidable on the mobile and social media front.

So when can we expect Bejeweled: Modern Warfare? ;)

Herp. *facepalm*
