It’s been rumored for a while that Montgomery & Co. is representing virtual world Club Penguin
in a sale transaction. It looks like the company is locked in talks,
possibly exclusive, with Sony, and the price is “at least half a
billion” says a source close to the deal.
We mentioned Club Penguin last month
when a competitor launched from IAC called Zwinktopia. The company is
killing it - projected revenues of $65 million in 2007 with $35 million
in profit. Having nearly 50% bottom line margin is exceptional. The
company has around 500,000 active users.
A stumbling block in the negotiations appears to be a disagreement
over charitable contributions. Club Penguin donates a significant
portion of profits to charity and wants this policy to continue
post-acquisition. Sony reportedly isn’t hot on the idea.
Club penguin is a virtual world for young kids. Sony may see
significant synergies by tying it into their Playstation platform.
Other bidders that were in talks until very recently reportedly include
AOL, Disney and Viacom.
This is good news for Club Penguin’s virtual world competitors as
well - which broadly includes Second Life, Runescape, Gaia, Habbo
Hotel, Cyworld, Neopets, Webkinz and others.

Same here. And the whole point of CP is that it's multiplayer. That's just not fair! CP is supposed to be a game to make friends and chat! How will you do that on a video game? You can't! It's pointless selling CP to Sony! Who's with me?

A video game would be pretty weird.... But it could work
and if sony did Buy CP it will be completely the same. Just with a few Sony ads here and there and maybe a sony TV or Shirt...

I know but you can't do multiplayer on Sony games and gaming systems which also sucks.

For a full screen computer game that would work, but you can already do that.

Also you can play club penguin on TV with the wii internet Channel : )

There are thousands of Multi-player Sony games. And Sony Systems can connect to the Internet so you can play online Rolling Eyes

I don't think it would be that much. But since it is so famous, it would be around $150.

I don't think that they should sell CP to Sony™ becuse all they would do is advertise for their products. Although, I woldn't mind having a Sony™ TV in CP if it had good graphics.Razz
