GameStop Acquires Kongregate

Game retailer GameStop has acquired Kongregate, the purveyor of web-based games said to host 10 million games a month. Financial terms of the deal are not being disclosed, but word is Kongregate will maintain its offices in San Francisco and continue under the leadership of co-founders Jim and Emily Greer. It's not clear how they plan to monetize this acquisition, but word is: "The move is part of an effort by the Grapevine, Tex.-based video game retailer to grow its digital business."

They could never afford Steam!
I doubt that. Merge, it can happen like Activision and Blizzard.

Please God, let them buy Steam and run it in to the ground.

Also, God, while we're on the subject of miracles, can you then make publishers go to Impulse so we can have DRM free games again?

That would be awesome, thanks!
