Who will be PopCap Games’ Buyer?

Written on June 23, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

PopCap Games, the producers of Zuma and Plants vs'. Zombies, is now in the process of being acquired for a price of over $1 Billion+.

Plants vs. Zombies’ producer, PopCap Games, is now slated to be acquired for a price of $1 Billion+ by an undisclosed buyer.

The first possible buyer is Zynga, which is known for making game-related acquisitions last year. However, some sources said they’ve backed out since PopCap Games is demanding a price that is too high. PopCap is earning $100-150 million, offering themselves to be bought for over $1 billion.┬áBy hearing Zynga out, Electronic Arts enters the scene. But PopCap acquisition was still too large for a type of company that has a market capital of $7.49 billion. Actually, this was not EA’s first big bet, since they had bought Playfish last 2009 for $400 million.

Sources also stated that there are two more candidates on the line. The first one is an Asian company that is looking forward to taking a good standing in the gaming market. And Tencent, a Chinese company that has a very huge market capital and some labeled games as well.

Earning over $22.5 million in 2009, PopCap Games seems to be one of the richest videogame productions in the industry. As of now, there are still no new updates regarding who will be PopCap Games’ buyer.

Last weekend, Microsoft made a big mistake in putting Angry Birds in their ads. This made Rovio a little bit upset. Today, EA Games released the games that will be included in Windows Phone 7. But still WP7 needs a alert third party apps and games to gain victory over Android and Apple.

EA is a titan when it comes to video games. And now they make a bigger step towards game supremecy with a support on Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 platform. The big plus? Let’s say an Xbox Live-enabled game starting 2010.

The first few titles of EA Mobile are The Sims 3, Tetris, Monopoly and Need for Speed Undercover.

All of these are franchises on existing mobile phones so it is not exclusive to Windows phone 7. But the Xbox Live online gaming network stays as an advantage. Even if Apple quite made it at Game Center, still WP7 is more tasty to game developers and gamers themselves. All EA games will support the Xbox Achievements. This includes badges and goals awarded for a job well done. These will add to your game score shared in between Windows Phone 7, Games for Windows and Xbox 360 games.

But surely WP7 should atleast have a third party apps in order to level with Android and iPhone.

Are you excited for the Windows Phone 7?
