GameStop, the world's largest video game and entertainment software retailer, today announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire Kongregate Inc., a social gaming destination and community for core gamers representing the fast-growing free-to-play gaming market.

Kongregate hosts 10 million monthly players who spend approximately 23 million hours per month on the site. Kongregate will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of GameStop Corp. and maintain its current offices in San Francisco.

Kongregate's unique digital platform allows consumers to discover free-to-play games that can be enjoyed via Internet-connected devices. Acquiring Kongregate strengthens GameStop's digital platform and its commitment to become the gaming aggregator of choice. GameStop President Tony Bartel said "Combining Kongregate's expansive catalogue of games with our well known consumer brand, powerful marketing and strong customer relationships, means that even more gamers will be able to enjoy their games anytime, anywhere and on any device."
