Apparantly Google is in the process of putting together a dedicated gaming hub purely for it’s android platform, something similar to Apple’s game centre. The guys and gals at Google are looking to make a gaming application for Android to bring gamers together in an experience which promises to be more social and engaging.
You don’t need me to tell you that mobile gaming is a big deal right now so it’s clearly a good choice for Google to want to have a stab at this. Game Center isn’t even that successful to be honest with a lot of iOS developers opting to use OpenFeint instead, so are Google trying to work some kind of angle here?
The application is said to link in with Google+ allowing users to challenge friends, colleagues or whoever is in you circles. There will no doubt be some additional Google+ interaction but as yet that remains to be seen. We will obviously keep you updated as more develops on this.
