Facebook and Google+, while comparing the two, Facebook will always stand victorious because of its wide variety of online games it offers, making many game developers instant millionaires from their presence on Facebook.
Recent evidence has fortified the claims that Google is planning Google+ for games, considering the size of the platform, 20 million; it’s just a matter of time, when users start asking for more activities.
Slashgear is the first one to show screen shots of a help page displaying settings for “Games Stream” and “updates shared from games.” Though, I couldn’t locate any such changes in my Google+ account, allowing for the evidence of a screen shot, it’s hard to negate such a development.
These reports are not latest, as Engadget, even, showed the code from Google+ with reference to game invites, a short time back. Next, it was TechCrunch’s time to shine as they reported and even exposed a Google games logo; finally, All Things D reported transactional details regarding games on Google+, saying that Google will surpass Facebook, by fixing a marginal share, less than 30%, on each paid game along with hosting games on Google’s servers. The last two reports are not more than a week old.
Additionally, it shouldn’t be forgotten that Google already charges quite low, only 5 %, on its Chrome Store products, thus, they can back these lofty claims.
Subsequently, the last month job ad posted by Google, for “brand-new business” called “Games at Google”, solidifies the arrival of games on Google+.
It is suspected that the games feature will be embedded into the Chrome Store providing support for both HTML 5 and Flash, so that Google+ remains accessible and playable across different platforms/ devices.
