Mobile Gaming Consolidation: Digital Chocolate Next?

Don’t have anything specific on it, but the latest issue of Red Herring magazine (not online yet) has a short piece on whether Digital Chocolate will now get bought out, after the $680 million acquisition of Jamdat by EA. The story says that EA might be a strong candidate as a buyer, since DC offfers a differentiated-enough slate than Jamdat.
My own theory is that rival THQ Wireless, which traditionally has belived in organic growth, will be a possible buyer too, now that it is cleaning up the house. Plus this might mean EA founder will go to a rival…anyway, my conspiracy theory.
Another peice of interesting info in the story: Apax Partners (disclaimer: one of our advertisers) made close to $100 million on Jamdat, about 10X its original investment.
