In case you haven't heard the news before now, Bejeweled creator PopCap is planning to go public sometime this year. Games.com -The Blog! met up with company co-founder Jon Vechey (pictured above) and CEO Dave Roberts during a NYC media tour where they've been outlining their plans to make a splash on the stock market.

Even in the middle of all of this big news, Vechey -- during a larger conversation about social gaming -- tells me he's a little jealous of FarmVille-maker Zynga's overnight success, and the fact that they've managed to reach millions of players who have previously been untouchable.
