MySpace: Videogames Are the Missing Puzzle Piece

Reuters today cites News Corp digital head Jonathan Miller as saying he wants to expand the videogame platform on MySpace. Miller, speaking at the Fortune Brainstorm: TECH conference in Pasadena, California, said he saw opportunities to make MySpace's gaming platform better geared to videogame suppliers who will then want to launch products on the site and employ its user data to better develop games.

"MySpace is and will be more in the future a gaming platform, a space for people to meet and play games," Miller said according to Reuters. Miller went on to point out that the solution could not only be good for MySpace, but also News Corp. "None of the traditional media conglomerates are also significant video game players, so to speak, and I think that that's the missing piece of the equation, particularly when you see how much time is spent playing games online."
