It appears Zynga is entering the sports gaming market, albeit on mobile platforms with major titles for both football and golf. Zynga is partnering with both the NFL and Tiger Woods to deliver content to mobile sports gaming fans in the form of two new games.

Zynga's team consists of several veteran developers who have created AAA sports titles in the past including Mike Taramykin, Jason Shenkman, Jeff Luhr, Ian Cummings and Michael Cayado.

"Our first football game – NFL Showdown –went live this morning in geo-lock and is currently available in select markets. The game is a manager-style mobile-first simulation game that offers sports enthusiasts a unique social experience that delivers authenticity, accessibility and competition. The game puts you in the thick of the action, letting you engage with your favorite teams and players 365 days a year, taking on the roles of Coach, General Manager and Owner as you manage your team to victory.

With regards to Golf, we are incredibly excited to be partnering with golf icon Tiger Woods...Golf’s massive global appeal and innate social nature lends itself well to mobile games and fosters the on-the-go competition we know you want. By combining Tiger Woods’ unparalleled golf insights with Zynga’s ability to create meaningful connections between players, we can develop truly unique social golf games that bring authenticity and accessibility to sports enthusiasts. We are looking forward to making our Tiger Woods golf game available to all of our players globally this year and giving our players and Tiger’s fans a new way to interact with their favorite golfer."

We'll have a review of NFL Showdown soon!

Never even heard of this before. I get most of my gaming info nowadays from Steam/Valve website.
