BELMONT, Calif., Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --PlayerScale, developers of
software infrastructure for cross-platform gaming, today announced that it has
crossed 100 million users in just over 17 months. The company's powerful
backend software, combined with data analytics and revenue tools, gives gaming
publishers and aggregators the ability to scale titles across casual, social
and mobile platforms in a rapid and seamless manner. This gives millions of
users access to the same personalized gaming experience across any device, be
it a portable, mobile, desktop or console.

The company is currently adding over a quarter million users daily across the
globe. Users generally spend a cumulative 100 years of game play on
PlayerScale systems every day. PlayerScale's software is used across 4,000
gaming titles from over 2,600 developers worldwide including SGN (Social
Gaming Network), Con Artist Games and 505 Games among others. The company,
founded in 2011, boasts a team of gaming and technology veterans who bring
experience from companies including Electronic Arts, Nonoba.com, Lycos Europe,
Spectrum Holobyte and Activision, and have worked on some of gaming's most
popular titles such as Madden NFL, Magic Zen Garden and Rock Band.

"The rapid proliferation of multiple platforms combined with users wanting to
access their games anywhere and on any device has created a challenge for
developers over the last year," said Jesper Jensen CEO of PlayerScale.
"PlayerScale was designed from the ground up to give users continuous content
across all devices making the gaming experience richer while giving developers
the ability to build user loyalty and increase revenues across their gaming
portfolio."

"PlayerScale's platform empowers us to deliver games to consumers in a fast
and efficient way," said Aber Whitcomb, CTO of SGN. "Our partnership enables
us to focus on the creative aspects of game development, while allowing
PlayerScale to provide the infrastructure."

For many gaming companies, over half of the game production time is taken up
by backend infrastructure development. The PlayerScale software incorporates
a data analytics tool that provides developers with information to understand
user behavior and track users and revenue across mobile and web-based
properties, giving developers the ability to increase monetization and rapidly
introduce new games into the market. PlayerScale supports Flash, Unity 3D,
C++, .Net, Android (JAVA), IOS (Objective-C) and HTML5.

PlayerScale's board of advisors is comprised of Jonathan Flesher, former vice
president of business development at Zynga and now executive vice president,
business development at Betable; and Nishad Pai, principal for global
alliances and strategic partnerships at Google.
