WebProNews recently had the privilege of talking with Jason Citron, the CEO of OpenFeint, the popular social gaming platform for mobile devices. Both he and his company have been getting a lot of attention lately for a number of reasons.
For starters, OpenFeint recently sold to GREE, a Japanese mobile game company, for a whopping $104 million. Also, the company partnered with SEGA in an effort to promote cross platform connectivity. In addition, OpenFeint is bringing a product to the market called GameFeed that is similar to Facebook’s newsfeed but that enables gamers to easily share what’s happening in all their games with their friends.
Citron told us that OpenFeint wanted to bring “rich social interaction” to gaming.
