View Full Version : RealNetworks Acquires Trymedia
Buying it from Macrovision who acquired it back in 2005:
Looks like Trymedia's reach into Yahoo and AOL were a major factor.

Ok, so they finally announced it.
Now I wonder what possible aggregators to reach Yahoo! and AOL are out there availiable to parties who does not publish their games exclusively? Since TryMedia is now part of Real I suppose they will be carrying only Real exclusive titles.
I guess Oberon still available non-exclusively... anyone else?

This raises an interesting question:
How much would you sell your company for?

I guess Oberon still available non-exclusively... anyone else?I thought it was only Oberon and Trymedia before this buy out. But there could be more...certainly they won't accept games from you on your own (I tried) - they insist on an "aggregator".

Hmmm, I wonder if my game will end up in realarcade 'by default' now? That would be ironic considering it was rejected originally:p
Acquisitions are funny things sometimes, the only one I ever remember thinking 'thats a no brainer' or 'that's a good combination' was when adobe acquired macromedia (those apps always like each other;) , but now there married with kids!).
The Metacreations (Poser, Anime Studio etc) acquisitions are legendary! Metacreations -> Curious Labs -> e frontier and now smith micro:eek:
