EA Acquires Facebook Game Maker Playfish for $250 Million (RUMOR)

This is in the rumor stages right now: video game mega-corporation Electronic Arts may have already bought social gaming company Playfish a few weeks ago in what inside sources claim was around a $250 million deal.

Whether or not the rumor has legs, with expected revenue of $75 million this year Playfish shows how advertising combined with virtual goods sales can mean lucrative real world money to social game developers on Facebook and other platforms. Another leading social games company, Zynga, is slated to report revenues upwards of $200 million for 2009.
