I believe it. Murdoch News Corp seems to be interested in buying out things. They recently bought out the company that does the myspace.com website. This might be another attempt to get something that has teen influence, although gaming is becoming more than just a children's activity.

EDIT: Also, it's Murdoch News Corp, so he's probably just expanding the kind of news he can offer.
