Electronic Arts has debuted Monopoly Millionaires on Facebook, and my first reaction to the news was: What took so long for that game get onto the social network?
When I searched the site for applications using just the word “Monopoly,” the EA version of the game shows up eighth, and the preceding results lead to pages with games that either don’t work, have nothing to do with the traditional board game, or appear to be placeholders for outbound links to versions of the game hosted on other sites. A page called Play Monopoly has banners linking to a version of Monopoly on Pogo.com, which is a division of Electronic Arts.
Monopoly has been available on gaming consoles, PC and Mac versions for years. EA released its latest version for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii during the third quarter of 2003, and that’s around when the game company’s Pogo.com division first launched the online version called Monopoly Here and Now: The World Edition.
