Who are your competitors and how are you different from them?
Established social game companies like Zynga, Playdom, Playfish might be considered competitors. But, we don’t view them as direct competitors as we are creating games and targeting an audience very different from these companies who focus primarily on “casual games.” Instead, Kabam is leading the way in creating a new segment of social games – Massively Multiplayer Social Games (MMSGs).
