PlayerScale, a cross-platform game infrastructure startup that provides tools for games played by 150 million users on platforms such as iOS and Android, announced the acquisition on its site today.

Their sudden push into mobile gaming is rather intriguing. I think we’ll see a lot more games related acquisitions by Yahoo over the Summer.
