After a two week launch frenzy, ( google+ platform blog for developers blog, adding google posts to search results on google) , Google wants people to spend even more time using G+ by giving it richer content – starting by adding a separate Games stream.
The initial set of games includes, the addictive, Angry Birds by, Rovio, PopCap's Bejeweled, and Zynga's Poker – and it’s attracting big developers like EA with a sweet new revenue model. Google only takes 5% of game revenues, as opposed to Facebook which takes 30%.
But you have to ask yourself, with such a tiny slice of the social market, compared to Facebook's huge slice of the pie, what brought those big name game developers to the fledgling network? Could it be that G+ has a different audience than facebook's young social gamers?
Have you played yet? I found it easy and fun.
