Voodoo PC has agreed to be acquired by Hewlett-Packard, Voodoo founder and Chief Technology Officer Rahul Sood announced on his blog Thursday. Details of the transaction were not released. Rahul Sood and his brother Ravi, currently the CEO of Voodoo, will take positions within a new game business unit in HP’s Personal Systems Group reporting to Phil McKinney, that group’s chief technology officer, according to the posting on Rahul Sood’s blog.
HP was apparently threatened by Dells purchasing Alienware. It’s somewhat of a surprise to see such a notable acquisition performed while there is so much legal hoopla being thrown around at HP, really. Just maybe… HP will help grow Voodoo. It would be nice to see.
