Peggle 2 Coming to PS4, Ending Xbox One Exclusivity

Still no word on a PC release.

Formerly exclusive to the Xbox One and Xbox 360, Peggle 2 will release on the PlayStation 4 on October 14, publisher Electronic Arts has announced.

First released on Xbox platforms in November 2013, PopCap's sequel to its simple but immensely satisfying take on pachinko was one of the games available at launch for the Xbox One. EA said that it was a timed exclusive at the time, but didn't say when it will release on other platforms until now. However, EA didn't have an update on when Peggle 2 will come to PC and mobile devices.

During a conference call with investors in July, EA CEO Andrew Wilson referenced a "much-anticipated new Peggle game" for mobile that is in the testing phase. Back in May, EA launched a version of a new, free-to-play Peggle game on the iOS app store in markets like New Zealand and Singapore. It's a common for publishers to test mobile games in smaller markets before launching worldwide.

GameSpot reviewed Peggle 2 favorably, giving it an 8/10 for its engrossing mechanics and scoring system, and charming music, sound effects, and visuals. Be sure to check out our full review and previous coverage.

yeah, this was actually one reason I was thinking about getting a xOne. It's nice to see it coming to other systems. But it kinda begs the question: What stays exclusive on that system?

It's great that PS4 owners are getting another game, but this phone/tablet-looking garbage isn't worth bragging about.

It's funny when people pull up sales figures. How does it benefit you in any way? Do you have any stock or make a portion of playstations sales? Probably not. Just play your console and play your games. Who gives a sh** what console you like better.

Did Eddie write the title? "Peggle 2 Coming to PS4" would have sufficed, but Emanuel seems to be baiting the lesser intelligence fanboys causing them to continue spouting their ignorance.

By next holiday season it'll be 25 million to 10 million. So I hope tomb raider got a big a$$ check cause they're gonna need it. I kinda feel sorry for M$ Bill Gates needs to just sell the whole division. I'm a gamer & I can't wait for sunset od. Could care less bout playing halo all over again.

Tomb Raider is only a timed exclusive on the xbox and will later release on PS4 and PC so I doubt it's sales will suffer. Also Bill Gates hasn't been in charge at Microsoft for quite some time so it's pretty doubtful that he'll be making any decisions about the xbox division. I don't think the sales numbers for the two consoles will be that disparate either, but the xbox has never really had a lot of appeal outside of the U.S. so I suppose it's possible.

You appear to be in the minority on Halo. Go over to the Halo MCC articles and see how many people are posting that they will buy an X1 just for that.

So sony is selling more consoles... why do you care? Do you own Sony stock? Do you work for Sony? I have an XBOX One and I could care less that Microsoft isn't selling as many. It makes no difference to me. Many great games are out and many more are coming.

@rolla020980 @Jamesbuick69 I wouldn't say sales don't matter. They can definitely affect things like what games come to the console. That being said, there will be plenty of great games on the Xbox One and I'm glad you enjoy your console. ^^

I really doubt MCC is going to sell as well as you think though. Maybe 1.5 million sales or so. Doubt it'll get more than that, and I don't see it selling all that many consoles. It's a remaster not a new game. Halo also isn't as popular as people like to pretend. Around 6 to 8 million copies sold per game. A very well selling game, and definitely a system seller, but Uncharted almost sells as well. It's not enough to float the Xbox One like some people keep trying to say.

<< LINK REMOVED >> I highly doubt MCC will only sell 1.5 million copies. That is a very low number. Are you talking it will sell that many consoles or games? If you are talking consoles, I still think it's low but I have no idea. If your talking 1.5million copies of MCC, I'd say no way. It'll sell a few million at least (is my guess).

@iammcgruber @Vylsith It's a remaster. 1.5 million copies is a very high number for a remaster. There's no way in hell it'll sell 1.5 million consoles. Again, Halo isn't as popular as you think.

I agree to a point. I think it'll shift systems, but I don't think it'll be MASSIVE. I'm not too bothered either way, I might pick a copy up if there's nothing else. Thing is there are a lot of people who are bored with Halo and a lot of others who became disenchanted with the franchise after Bungie let go of it (even though Halo 4 was still a good game IMO). I used to love Halo, but as I'm getting older, it seems more for kids/teenagers when you think about it. The story, setting, characters etc. wouldn't be out of place in a Saturday morning cartoon.

@sambucca I never played Halo 4. I did enjoy Halo and I've liked Bungie games since Myth and Marathon. I think people assume that I'm trying to pull the "Halo sucks" card. I'm really not. Halo just isn't as big as people seem to pretend. It's a very popular franchise without a doubt, but people have to put that in context. It's only marginally more popular than other popular franchises. Gears of War and Uncharted are very close in sales to Halo. Does anyone really think Gears of War and Uncharted remastered collections would sell 1.5 million consoles?

I'm not rooting for the Xbox One to fail, but I have to be realistic about this. Microsoft enthusiasts are jumping from one thing to another for the next big sales boost. So far, none of them have worked. Titanfall and unbundling Kinect have both had a pretty underwhelming impact on sales. Now a remaster is going to push Xbox One back into the race? Halo 5 would be a decent argument, and there's still a chance for Microsoft to come back. MCC isn't Halo 5 though. People need to curb their expectations a little.

By the way, Sambvca is delicious and love the Hound avatar. Great choices.

11 million to 5.5 million. So who cares what games?? M$ is getting hammered. Who cares if they're trying to rebound. They lied and tried to push garbage policies. If Sony had the extra $ that they do can you imagine the console and service they'd build and provide???? I bought both. My ps4 is getting abused. My X1 is great for Nfl network.

Cry me a river. Its funny cause you mentioned halo but it seems Destiny has stole all of Halos thunder. Sure halo 2 multiplayer was great. But notice I said "was". The new one yes. But I agree that they're both out to make $ not sure about what Sony tried to force. DDR3=900P. I wish both companies would've built stronger,smarter consoles.

Sony=Microsoft.... they both lied.They both tried to push garbage policies. You seem to prefer a console based on an announcement that was then rescinded. Sounds like a poor reason. If you said you prefer the games on the PS4 I would accept that. So... what's your point?

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> This article from January 2013 details patents filed by sony for DRM to curb used game sales. Based on that information I think it is pretty likely that they would have announced similar policies to the X1, but they had the benefit of announcing second and after the backlash toward MS they intelligently changed their minds.


<< LINK REMOVED >>


I don't really think there is much room for misinterpretation there, and I also don't think either company is "evil" for trying to curb used game sales.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> Companies file patents all the time that they never use. This is proof of nothing other than they were contemplating the possibility of using it at some point in the future. Each companies has an entire team focused on creating patents, the vast majority of which they will never use. A patent is proof of nothing. Again, the interview didn't imply what people are pretending it implied. The Sony exec simply said that Microsoft's mistakes influenced Sony's actions in some way. It was an incredibly vague statement that was interpreted in an incredibly exact way. It was just bad journalism in general.

So another "timed" console exclusive for Xbox One. Pretty standard.

to be an indie game it has to be "inde"pendent of the major dev's. This is an EA game... hence it is not an Indie.

I know... so many of them are just crap; however, every once in a while a gem appears, such as Limbo. I hope indie's keep making games so I can play the one that turns out to be a hit.

Since this is published by EA does it mean that the PS4 finally gets a new non-indie game?

@grizzlybearowns @bigrod69 I have a PS4 and a XB1 - I can assure you the XB1 has a much better game collection at the moment. That's not going to change until next year at the earliest since the PS4 has a terrible exclusive lineup through the end of this year.


It's OK to be disappointed with something and point out the obvious. Fanboys are such obnoxious c-words.

If you are going to spout fanboy ignorance, the least you could do is say something half intelligent.

I find it odd that I have had no shortage of games to play on my XBOX One.... I must have been imagining all of them.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> I find it odd that you criticize the PS4 fanboy for replying to a Xbox One fanboy who's just as guilty of nonsense statements that aren't even remotely true. Both consoles have fun games at this point. There will be a lot more for both consoles soon as well. People need to stop pretending there's no good reason to own either console. It's getting old. It's fine to be a fanboy, I just wish people would stop being rude about it. A little less FUD on both sides would be nice too.
