Reports: Google Buys Slide for Its Social Gaming Play

According to sources talking to TechCrunch, the New York Times and others, Google has purchased app maker Slide for $182 million (or maybe $228 million) as part of its push (along with its $150 million Zynga investment) into social gaming. Slide, which has chewed through several business models in its five-year history, now makes virtual goods and entertainment widgets for social sites. Neither party has confirmed the deal yet.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
