It looks like the leaks were spot-on. Right on cue, at Google I/O, Google’s new game services have been announced, complete with multiplayer match-making, leaderboards, cloud-based save states and cross-platform functionality.

Thanks to earlier leaks, we’ve already known some of the features Google Play game services will offer for some time now. What we didn’t know, is that it would be cross-platform. Not only will Google Play game services be accessible to developers for implementation on Android and the web, but iOS as well. Finally, an easy way to enable real cross-platform gaming, all thanks to Google.

Look for Google’s new game services features to hit games shortly.

    Though some will criticize I think google strategy for going cross platform is a good thing for everyone. People will be liberated from the walls of apple and will see that there is a better world outside.
