Scoreloop Extending Ecosystem to bada

Cooperation to Bring Social Gaming Platform to bada and World Cyber Games

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and MUNICH, GERMANY and BEIJING--(Marketwire - October 11, 2010) - Scoreloop, the leading social gaming infrastructure provider, today announces its partnership with Samsung. The partnership brings the Scoreloop Social Gaming SDK (Software Developer Kit) to the bada platform and its infrastructure to the World Cyber Games. Scoreloop will provide the SDK to its network of over 3,000 developers, and parties already supporting the platform will have immediate access.

Extending the Scoreloop ecosystem to bada brings the mobile gaming market one step closer to connected, making it easier and more attractive for developers to go cross platform. Support across a wide range of devices and features such as in-app purchases makes this platform particularly interesting for developers."
