Walt Disney reportedly is negotiating to acquire Playdom, one of the major players in the casual-gaming segment for Facebook and other social networks.
The two sides are said to be far off on price, with figures being mentioned as high as $750 million and as low as $400 million. Disney has sought to increase its casual-game presence by acquiring iPhone developer Tapulous this month and virtual world Club Penguin in 2007.
