Mega-retailer Gamestop purchases Flash gaming hub Kongregate

What Gamestop will bring to this table is currently as uncertain as the actual terms of the acquisition, which remain unknown. While we certainly do not want to monger fear in thinking that Gamestop will begin charging to play games that, logically, one could simply go to another site and play absolutely for free, it%26rsquo;s asinine to think that the retail giant will be able to resist trying to squeeze more revenue out of the site than simple ad sales. We%26rsquo;ll be watching Kongregate and its career over the coming months with great interest.
