MIDWAY GAMERS DAY 08: Casual portal coming this spring

Midway's first foray into the world of downloadable PC casual games will arrive thisspring when it adds over 20 playable titles to Midway.com and Midwayarcade.com.

That's according to CEO Matt Booty, who told assembled press and Midway employees at the publisher's Gamers' Day in Las Vegas that the casual market represented a good opportunity for the firm.

Booty told the crowd that the casual market could play a key role in helping the publisher back to profitability – adding that he believed the company's current business model didn't need to be altered in order for it to be successful this year.
