Scoreloop, the cross-platform social gaming network, has teamed up with CSL Limited for global expansion. The Hong Kong-based CSL has launched its own social gaming service on Scoreloop’s system, marking the first time an operator has set up an end-to-end solution through Scoreloop. CSL users will get access to Scoreloop games, indirectly broadening Android games’ reach.
Things are intensifying for social game platform providers, forcing consolidation across the industry. DeNA and NTT DoCoMo are partnering up, delivering DeNA’s entire social gaming network, Mobage, to DoCoMo devices, Gamasutra reports. It’s another direct team-up that bypasses the Android Market, but still benefits from its growing popularity. The string of platform partnerships comes days after OpenFeint was acquired by GREE for $104 million.
