    Indeed, we could save them the trouble and have a whip-round.

    We could, but I wouldn't bother, not for the people behind *Ville series.

    I tried Farmville for like 7 days and got bored it off it after than. Not sure what the appeal is to it as it doesn't seem to have a dense play depth to it. Sinking real money into it seemed a bit pointless.

    Re: News - Zynga valued at over $7bn

    a fool and their money will soon be parted....

    The fact that Zynga turns a profit and 400m from 275m users... its less than $1.50 an year profit per user actually sounds to me to be a great return of interest for the company... but worth 7-9billion.... really?

    I am out (in an angry Peter Jones style).

    Zynga games are fun time wasters and whilst some players do spend money... I wonder what percentage spend $50(the price of a computer game) a year... and I wonder how many players would keep playing if spending money became required.... I suspect that if they required a $1 payment to play all zynga games ever they would probably loose half their user base.
