Leading mobile cross platform social gaming platform Scoreloop has recently announced that they’re now adding one million new players per week. In November 2010, Scoreloop reported approximately 3 Million users per month coming through their doors.
This number shouldn’t come as a surprise, as mobile gaming is predicted to be a major market this year, as Android comes of age, and Apple’s iOS continues to make advancements in the gaming field. To this degree, Scoreloop is reporting a massive 100 million sessions served in 2010. This figure is qualified by Scoreloop as, “…where a gamer has actively used the social connectivity features of a Scoreloop-enabled game.” Additionally, the San Francisco based firm saw 350 million user submitted high scores, or, 11 scores submitted per second.
“One million new users a week is a magic number for Scoreloop, and it’s proof that users are actively taking advantage of the social element that we’re enabling thousands of developers to creatively integrate into their mobile games,” said Marc Gumpinger, CEO of Scoreloop. “Today’s announcement represents an accelerating rate of growth that’s no doubt driven by the significant SDK uptake and an increasing number of developers using our tools to leverage the freemium model.”
While these are fantastic numbers for Scoreloop, as noted above, 2011 is heating up to be the year of the mobile game. Scoreloop will face stiff competition from some big names, including, OpenFeint, what does DeNA have in store, and then there’s Kongregate who was, and then wasn’t admitted to the Google Android Marketplace.
