And they are raising tonnes of cash. They are now lead by former EA COO John Pleasants who is the new CEO. http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://ceoworld.biz/ceo/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/john_pleasants-ea-playdom.jpg&imgrefurl=http://ceoworld.biz/ceo/2009/06/19/electronic-arts%25E2%2580%2599s-john-pleasants-joins-playdom/&usg=__dhxlP3wPvln2yQ0LeHuxPu0BPXw=&h=500&w=325&sz=92&hl=en&start=5&sig2=7RZU0m1eG29pnAwVxcrUdw&um=1&tbnid=jsh4Iee5Trte6M:&tbnh=130&tbnw=85&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dplaydom%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DN%26um%3D1&ei=DvbjSvuJNIKfsgby8JzWCQ
