Nielsen snaps up market research outfit SuperData

Market tracker Nielsen has snapped up New York-based research firm SuperData.

No figure has been put on the deal, but the duo believe this union will give its clients a greater insight into the global games market.

SuperData will be rebranded 'SuperData, a Nielsen company' moving forwards.

"Shared vision"

“Video games have become a mainstream form of entertainment that engages and excites billions of people globally," SuperData CEO and co-founder Joost van Dreunen said.

"In Nielsen we found a shared vision of helping clients understand the changes taking place in consumer entertainment preferences."
