Though it pains us to say it, everyone needs some Peggle in their lives. Fortunately, then, PopCap’s priced the iPhone version at $4.99. Amazing.
According to Joystiq, the game features all of the original content and a double-tap zoom view and scroll wheel for precision aiming.
Buy it. And if you haven’t got an iPhone or iPod Touch, buy one of those. Buy everything.

PopCap previously released a Bejewled add-on for WoW, and you can get both over at FileShack.

Acocrding to this, the beta version of the iPhone SDK has been downloaded over 100,000 times since it was launched last week.
In addition, both Namco and PopCap have pledge support for the platform with Bejeweled, Zuma, Peggle, Pac-Man and Galaga all confirmed for release.
Still no idea when you’re actually going to be able to use the App Store on iTunes and actually play any of this. Quite exciting though, isn’t it? Apart from the Peggle bit, obviously.

Last week’s GDC was a strange affair that threw up more questions than answers. While it carried the predicted unveiling of Gears of War 2 and a Microsoft keynote holding traditional big hitters such as Fable 2 and Ninja Gaiden II, the event’s main speech’s message was by no means “the norm”. Yes, the blood, swords and guns were all where they were supposed to be, but at the core of John Sheppard’s keynote was a theme of radical change that permeated the entire conference, and one that left both developers and platform holders alike chewing their nails.

So says this. We hate Peggle, but we can’t ignore it, apparently, because everyone else thinks that watching a ball bounce around for hours on end is a good way to use what little life you own. So, begrudgingly, here’s some news about Peggle. The XBLA version of the PopCap game is supposedly going to have levels you can pay for.

We love Peggle. So it comes as great news that the upcoming XBLA version will include online multiplayer options. We think this means two of you will be able to watch something happen that you have virtually no control over simultaneously, but that would just be cynical. There’s a movie through the link explaining everything.
