Zynga is seeking a $7 billion valuation for its initial public offering, which is down $10 billion from previous reports, with analysts agreeing the firm’s initial valuation was too ambitious and that the company should wait until it releases its Q4 financials. Sources state the firm will announce a price on December 15 and that the social game publisher could net around $900 million based on 100 million shares hitting Nasdaq at $8 to $10 each. If the firm hits the stock market at $7 billion as reported, it will put it in third place behind juggernauts Activision and EA, which hold a market value of $14.2 billion and $7.7 billion, respectively. Zynga is expected to hold an investor’s presentation next week. Via IndustryGamers. Thanks, Colin Gallacher.

Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Patcher said today that while the February NPD looks good on paper, he expects “limited market reaction” to the figures.
While most publishers met or exceeded expectations – THQ not being one of them – Patcher said the figures would not effect stock buying options in a note today.
“We expect limited market reaction to the sales data”, he said. “While overall sales growth was quite respectable, Activision, Electronic Arts, THQ, Take-Two, and Ubisoft all delivered negative or flat sales compared to last year, with the month’s upside generated by solid performances from Nintendo, Sony and Capcom.
“Additionally, many publishers have adopted conservative views about the year, and we think that concerns about the economy are likely to limit share price appreciation.
“We think that this negativism could provide an opportunity, as solid hardware sales imply continued software sales strength well into 2009, and we continue to believe that the video game software sector remains highly recession-resistant”.
While he did admit that the strong software performance is “sustainable well into 2009″, he said software sales are likely to level out in August.

Sometimes you can’t do anything right. Despite leading the entire videogames race, Nintendo’s shares have hit a seven month low on the Nikkei, following a general trend in the Japanese market caused by the strong yen and a rotten US forecast. Shares in the company fell 5.9 percent today to (£219.30), the lowest price since July 2 last year.
“There’s an increasing chance that the U.S. will post negative growth in the first quarter, and that’s tough news for cyclical markets like Japan,” said Akio Yoshino, chief economist at Societe Generale Asset Management Japan.
