Slide executive Keith Rabois isn't the only one who sees serious cash in silly games. To get more in on the action, News Corp. property IGN is trying to acquire Tom Fulp's Newgrounds, a Flash videogame portal that specializes in violent games like The Last Stand 2, featured in the video embedded above. A sale could be lucrative for Fulp.
A source tells us that the site's founder, who's never taken funding and brags on the Newgrounds "about page" that "we're still 100 percent independent and love what we do," is said to be happy collecting "millions" in revenue and is uninterested in a sale. According to Quantcast, Newgrounds sees about 1.5 million monthly uniques.
