Game on - Google announces gaming feature for Google+



Its again evident that Facebook is trumbling. With the same day announcement of Google+ games and Facebook's gaming developers meet , the battle is getting fearce .
Google is set to hit facebook where it is really good at , infact the biggest reason for facebook success is the social games it provides on the platform . HackingAlert had reported in  post after a few days of launch of Google+ that why google+ needs a poker application. And google is going to roll out the games without wasting any time . 
Google has already shocked facebook and other social networks by adding more than 20 million in less than 2 months and now it is set to sky rocket the pace of growth further. 
It seems that Google has been observing very closely how the facebook platform behaves and with games and what are the good and bad experiences that the users of facebook face . Good experience will be made by the game developers but the bad experiences should be eradicated by the platform , Hence Google made a very very smart and home run move by saying - 


And here’s how it will work within Google+:

When you’re ready to play, the Games page is waiting—click the games button at the top of your stream. You can see the latest game updates from your circles, browse the invites you’ve received and check out games that people you know have played recently. The Games page is also where your game accomplishments will appear. So you can comfortably share your latest high score—your circles will only see the updates when they’re interested in playing games too.

Most importantly, says Google:

If you’re not interested in games, it’s easy to ignore them. Your stream will remain focused on conversations with the people you care about.

This statement clearly shows the win of Google+ over Facebook because the game requests can be sent to you weather you play games or not. Google is making right and intelligent move to take on with Facebook . There is also a general believe going on that facebook has reached its maximum potential and should bring out somthing new and good in order to stop people from migrating to google+ .
Google+ game suits are again powered by the big game developer ZYNGA . Even though Farm ville and City ville are but Google+ will have a Zynga poker application .
Other developers are also lining up their popular products to feature on the Google+ platform Like Rovio's Angry birds etc .
We can expect that Google+ will surely maintain its fast growing pace for next some time now as it is continuously rolling out newer and better features than its rivals .
For those who have not yet tried it are missing somthing cool . Get Google+ invites here.

DARKLORD!!
