According to information collected by AppData
, the FarmVille
player base passed the 80 million mark yesterday. We'll give you a second to soak that in. It might help you digest it if we present the number numerically: 80,920,421. Or, perhaps you need another point of reference: That's almost the population of Germany
. If you tried to orally count the number of people currently playing FarmVille
, it would take you close to four years. And God only knows how large the player base would be then
In related news, Zynga CEO Mark Pincus recently bought a yacht for his yacht
. It's just a smaller yacht, that rests precariously on the bow of the larger yacht, in case the larger yacht breaks down. A lifeyacht
, if you will.
