GameStop has announced that its expanding its digital business today by acquiring social gaming hub and community, Kongregate. The transaction is expected to be finalized on or around August 1; Kongregate will still be headed up by its founders, Jim and Emily Greer.

Never been to Kongregate? Now’s a good time to give it a look, but check your productivity at the door. The site is home to hundreds of amazing free-to-play games that span multiple genres. Also, many of them are very, very good. How will the acquisition affect the Kongregate currently available to users today?

“Our community will only be enhanced by GameStop’s close relationship with millions of passionate gamers,” says co-founder Jim Greer.

Kongregate is reportedly already home to 10 million players monthly, adding up to 23 million hours per month on the site. Like I said, don’t check it out unless you don’t plan on getting anything done today.
