Google Play Games

It's turning out to be the worst-kept secret of this year's Google I/O -- 'Google Play Games' has cropped up once again in game changelogs ahead of its presumed launch during today's keynote. Eufloria HD has been updated with support for "Google Play Games achievements," and a note adding "We hope you enjoy using Google Play Games to save and share achievements!" A number of Gameloft titles have been updated too, with more subtle references "game services" support being included.

We're sure it'll all be official in just a couple of hours or so. Stay tuned to our Google I/O keynote liveblog for all the latest.

I think this idea is spectacular.

It would be, if it wasn't years late...

Windows Phone Gen 1 had it... Thats nearly if not 3 years ago.

Google didn't value games as much as WP did when it first came out.
I mean.. I could have thought of at least a million other things WP could have focused on besides games when it first came out.

But it's a step in the right direction for google.

Are there any good games on WP yet?

user7618 says:

What does it matter if it's "years late" or that WP had it? We have it now and that's all that matters.
