Google to provide unified gaming hub in Google Play, could possibly be cross-platform


While today was all about another company and its new products, there were a few pieces of news from other companies that are worth mentioning. One of those little bits of news is about Google Play, the replacement to Google's "market" apps that the company announced just yesterday. 

Google today announced that it will be bringing a unified gaming hub to the new Play store, and that since this hub will be accessible from Chrome, Android, and Google+, it will be easier for developers to make cross-platform games. 

Unfortunately, this unified hub likely won't be available for a while. However, I do hope this comes true at some point in the near future. I'm already an Android- and Chrome-fanatic, and being able to play the same game on Google+ that I already did on my tablet and my web browser would push me to use the social network. 

The name "Google Play" is starting to make more sense now. I can't wait to see what else Google is planning on adding.
