Hiroko Tabuchi, reporting for the NYT:
DeNA, the Japanese social game giant, said Tuesday that it would
acquire Ngmoco, a Silicon Valley iPhone game developer, for $400
million — one of the largest deals ever involving an iPhone
application developer and another sign that the iPhone is fast
becoming the hottest game device on the market.
A little birdie tells me that Ngmoco employees didn’t hear about the deal until last night. [Update: I originally wrote that Ngmoco employees didn’t hear about the deal until the NYT story hit. My mistake, not the birdie’s. We regret the error.]
