Will PlayerScale be Yahoo! Games backend?

Yahoo! is acquiring Player Scale, a cross-platform game infrastructure provider. Good overview of the deal by gamesbeat. This could be a very smart move by Yahoo!

Games.yahoo.com is huge but they really missed the social gaming wave. The rapid shift to mobile gives them a second chance. They can move their portal gaming audience to mobile experience with a shared backend.

This is pure, uninformed speculation, but it’s sure worth watching….
