MTV Networks to invest more than $500 million in games

MTV Networks plans to invest well over $500 million in video games, seeing the red-hot entertainment category as a major pillar of growth in its goal to reach consumers wherever they spend time.

"Games are critical," MTV Networks President of Global Digital Media Mika Salmi said in an interview this week.
