—Xconomy dug into some documents detailing the sale of DragonSoul—a game for mobile devices developed by Madison-based PerBlue—to GIE. (GIE is a subsidiary of GREE, a company that is based in Japan and publicly traded there). What emerged was a more complicated sequence of events than GIE presented in its news release earlier this month announcing the deal. According to a translation of a document on file with the Tokyo Stock Exchange, GIE actually purchased an entire company—PerBlue, Inc.—as part of its acquisition of DragonSoul. Subsequent reporting revealed that before it agreed to sell the game to GIE, PerBlue spun out all of its non-DragonSoul assets into a new entity it created—PerBlue Entertainment, Inc. That is the legal name PerBlue will operate under going forward, a leader at the company said.
