EA Launches Free Online Scrabble
Hasbro has teamed up with EA to bring its classic boardgame to the online landscape through EA's casual portal, Pogo.com. Best of all, it's free. Facebook users will also be happy that a Facebook application will be coming later this month, though the fate of Facebook's current Scrabble-clone, Scrabulous, is unknown. Futhermore, EA says it's not done yet; expect to see more Hasbro-licensed games available through Facebook and other social-networking sites. It's nice to see a boardgame publisher embrace the internet, especially since it doesn't cost users a thing.
