MySpace looks to games as 'missing piece of the equation'

Justin McElroy

MySpace became a wretched hive of scum and villainy as soon as all decent people fled for the greener pastures of Facebook. But Jonathan Miller, of MySpace parent company News Corp, hopes that games are the answer to reinvigorating the site.

"None of the traditional media conglomerates are also significant video game players, so to speak, and I think that that's the missing piece of the equation, particularly when you see how much time is spent playing games online," Miller said during last week's Fortune Brainstorm: TECH conference (via Reuters).

It's a nice idea, but we're still not sure the video games MySpace could offer would be worth the dirty feeling we get every time we visit. Also, Facebook has Dolphin Olympics 2, so good luck beating that.
