“We want to make online games as significant as in real life play,” said Vic Gundotra, vice president of engineering at Google.
In addition to one of the most famous games, ‘Angry Birds’, an online version of ‘Crime City’ would also be in Google’s social network. “We look forward to joining Google to bring ‘Crime City’ to Google+ users,” said Ken Chiu, chief executive of Funzi, which develops games for social networks and phones.
Facebook not just stayed arms crossed after Google+, which has more than 10 million users since June, began offering games, Zuckerberg’s social network began promoting new offerings for online play. “When you play, you will now see a separate stream of gambling activity from friends, scores and achievements,” said Jared Morgenstern in the official Facebook blog.
