God damn. Dude who was already big. Headed up Caesars Interactive stuff and bought Playtika, Israeli startup, for $150M in 2011 when they had under a dozen employees. Playtika would be sold for $4.4B to consortium of Chinese companies in 2016-07. 29x increase in 5 years. When Caesars was bought and taken by private in late 00s I think, it was valued at around $31B. Playtika got pretty damn big. Ahead of Zynga and Mojang. Only behind King and Supercell. -- Apparently the initial sale also caused Israel to become big in [mobile] games. 200+ game startups in Israel now.

So Hasbro Interactive isn't Atari? #acquisitions #need_to_grok #video_games #tech_companies #year:2000 #pub
"Two Japanese institutions will become one in September; new holding company to rank only behind Sammy Sega in size." -- Is Bandai a toy company more than a gaming company? Weird combo then, no? #$tag_more #acquisitions #need_to_grok #video_games #tech_companies #billion_dollar_deals #mergers #pub
God damn, Nintendo is up 81% for 2017. 87% since Switch on March 3rd. Apparently going to be making 16M-20M Switch's per year. Doubt that'll last long. Prob just for 2018 and 2019. #stock_market #foreign #foreign_stocks #stocks #nintendo #video_games #pub
