tycoon Rupert Murdoch may be about to make a move into the videogames industry,
with the COO of his giant News Corporation group confirming that the company is
seeking an acquisition in the sector.
Speaking at a US investment conference, Peter Chernin admitted that News Corp
was "kicking the tires of pretty much all video games companies" - up to and
including market leader Electronic Arts.
"We see [games] as a big business and would like to get into it," Chernin told
the conference, according to a report in today's Financial Times.
