PopCap Games, the worldwide leader in casual games, today announced that it has signed a global agreement with Sony Ericsson to pre-load Games By PopCap on Sony Ericsson Xperia mini and Xperia mini pro smartphone models. The partnership will officially mark the arrival of PopCap’s game titles on Android devices in Europe. I don’t know exactly how I feel about this, I hate having a bunch of crap pre-loaded on my phones but as long as they don’t restrict you from removing it then I suppose I am cool with this deal.
As part of the agreement, PopCap hits such as Plants vs. Zombies, Peggle and Chuzzle will be embedded on smartphone devices that will start to roll out later this Summer. PopCap’s multiple award-winning title, Chuzzle, will be pre-loaded in its entirety while other PopCap hits such as Peggle and Plants vs. Zombies will be included as unlimited trial modes – with the option to purchase full editions of the games using a directly integrated billing service.
