A matter of hours after Playfish announced its acquisition by gaming giant Electronic Arts, we're already seeing ads for The Sims for iPhone and Pogo games integrated into Pet Society and Restaurant City, et al. Even though the deal was sealed this morning, according to the Playfish COO, this is an indication that the deal has been in the works for a while (or the EA ad team works extra fast).
On an editorial note, we're intrigued by the prospect of these two companies working together. We're curious to see what popular EA game series will be turned into social games and if the recently launched Spore Islands and Pogo Puppies on Facebook will change (if at all) under Playfish's tutelage.
