Playdom acquires Acclaim Games (NOT to be confused with Acclaim Entertainment)
Of course, the move made a bit more sense when I found out Acclaim Games is an MMO and casual game maker that just happened to purchase Acclaim Entertainment's name and logo when the publisher went defunct in 2004. But this revelation also made the news much less exciting to me, since I'd never actually heard of any of the new Acclaim Games' games, even though they reportedly have over 15 million registered users combined.
Anyway, with this new acquisition coming on the heels of Playdom's recently announced deal with ESPN and purchase of Offbeat Creations, it looks like the company is on quite the expansion kick. If this keeps up, Zynga may have some real competition atop the social gaming environment.
