- Is there anything here to show that Zynga has identified new growth vehicles? As it is, they seem to just be shifting their (admittedly enormous) audience around their stable of games, trying to get a few more dollars from the percentage of players that spend real cash.
As this article from a couple of weeks ago points out, pre-ipo is no time for Zynga to have peaked. <http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2011-09-30-the-silent-canary-editorial>
Mobile seems to be one area they are hoping to find growth. But, imho, just porting their FB games to mobile won't be enough to win new customers.Oct 12, 2011
