Disney getting serious about gaming, will profits follow?

|By:, SA News Editor

Disney (DIS -0.7%) will shut down Toontown Online and two other online games for children as it increases its focus on Club Penguin and new mobile game ventures.

Club Penguin has been seriously beefed up with characters from the Star Wars franchise and Pixar movies popping up.

The big picture: With Disney Infinity up and running on top of the other gaming moves, losing money in the Disney Interactive segment may be a thing of the past for the company.
