Android’s Play Games Concept

any are familiar with Apple’s Game Center which was released a few years back when iOS 4.1 was released.  Since its birth, Game Center has deeply aided in the spread of a gaming fever amongst friends with such features as leader-boards and achievements.  The boys at AndroidPolice  have torn apart some coding in the APK form Google.  Looks like Google will be adding features similar to Apple’s Game Center.  Features such as:

Leader-boards
Invite Friends
Game Saving
In-Game Chats
Gaming Circles with you Friends

More information should be released at the Google I/O.  Android has a large market for game apps so the enrollment numbers should be interesting to compare with Apple’s Game Center towards the year’s end.  No matter Google’s strategy, this looks like great news for you Android gamers!
