    While this news isn't directly Android related, these changes by Google will likely have a future impact on much of our gaming on Android in the future, so we thought it should be shared with you guys. According to statements from Google+ Product Manager Punit Soni, made during a Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Google is planning on combining their various gaming platforms, including Google+ Games, into a single unified gaming platform they will call simply, Google Games. He said,

    Mr. Soni further added, “It was very clear games was one of the first things we would put up there on Google+. Games bring people together. They are an important part of how users interact online. Game developers push boundaries, and games are fun.”

    This new direction focuses even further on Google's plans to create a Google branded ecosystem to assist developers but also to bring consumers together under one social platform, namely Google+. This ties hand in hand with Google's recent announcement in which they changed the name of the Android Market to the Google Play Store. Here's a quote from the TalkAndroid article with some more details,

    This is a brilliant move on Google's part. Tying everything together under a unified ecosystem will help each of the currently disparate products flourish. It makes marketing everything easier, and it showcases products and services to people that might not have seen them otherwise.
