OpenFeint scored a big partner that will integrate the company’s social gaming capabilities. It’s SEGA which will provide social gaming for its forthcoming mobile title – Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing for iOS-based devices.

When it comes to availability, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing will be released on iOS later this summer.
Finally we have the words of SEGA’s Haruki Satomi (Vice President of Digital Business) to share.
