PopCap's Facebook game Bejeweled Blitz is headed to Xbox Live in the next few months. The game, called Bejeweled Blitz Live, is largely similar to the Facebook version, the goal is to match three or more of the same colored gems as possible in 60 seconds, and see how your score stacks up against friends in an in-game leaderboard.

There is absolutely no connection between the Facebook game and this new version (the two games, say, don't share a leaderboard), sand there are a few other key differences -- including an epic-sounding 16-player Party mode, as in, 16 people can play the game at the same time over Xbox Live, competing for a top spot in an in-game leaderboard. You will also be able to go head-to-head against friends over Live or just play against other people in your own living room.
