Some interesting news from the Game Developers Conference has made it ways to the forefront. Google+ product manager Punit Soni has mentioned that Google is working on a unified gaming platform and is expected to launch it by next year.

Soni says “we will not be here talking about Google+ Games, Chrome Web Store games, Games for Native Client and Android games.” Instead, we will be talking about “Google Games.”

We’re not too sure how all of that will play out – especially that Android games part – but it’ll be interesting to see what they have in store. Google is the big underdog in the social networking sect and they need to do all that they can to attract more users from Facebook and Twitter.

Google will also look to utilize Hangouts and notifications to make the experience seamless to share with friends. Being a big fan of Google+ myself, I hope Google continues to do everything they can to allow the platform to flourish – we don’t want another Google Buzz situation on our hands, after all.
