According to Game Pro, Rovio has turned down Zynga’s 2.25 billion dollar offer. We ask, Why Rovio Why?! It would have been nice to finally have a facebook-off with our Facebook friends. The Sims has done it, so why hasn’t Rovio? Could it be that they see something else coming? Perhaps Google + is the next big thing? It is never good to place all your “eggs” in one basket Rovio. (Pun absolutely intended)
We can’t really crucify Rovio for turning the offer down; it still isn’t clear what the terms were for this price tag. Perhaps it was a straightforward buy-off, and if that were the case I would have turned it down as well. Come on! Would you just sign over your billion-dollar baby that easily? You have to admit for a company that is worth over 1.2 billion dollars that was a low-ball offer.
Hope you manic Monday was a good one! Squawk you soon!
