What Does This Mean For Gaming On Android?

Google play game services could be the edge that Google and Co. needed to accelerate game development and porting to Android. These tools not only make for a better, more social experience but also can be advantageous to game developers who would have to either design their own systems and infrastructure to allow for these features. It is also very fortunately timed as well allowing developers to target both the Nvidia Project Shield and Ouya with more professional console quality games that you should be able to find in the Google Play store and other places, too.
