Google+ Games coming Soon

As Google+ begins to look more and more like Facebook by the day, Google is now reportedly planning to bring in more revenue with games integrated into Google+, a feature included in Facebook that has gained massive revenue with the social network. Of course, this is not official, but companies like Slashgear, TechCrunch, All Things D, and Engadget have rooted through the code and pulled interesting bits out that very likely indicate a games feature in the future. For example, a Google Games logo was found, and code meant to link up to play the game on another server. Also, code for game invites and a job posting last month for Games at Google manager were also found.
 
Although the details are even more sketchy from here, Google is supposedly going to take less that 35% of the revenue from games integrated into Google+. Because Google+ may require less of the revenue than Facebook, developers are likely to jump onto the newer social network (now over 20 million strong) with new titles instead of Facebook.
