We've seen leaks before that point to a unified gaming service by Google that is likely to be announced at Google I/O in just a few days, and now it looks like there is proof that the service is on the way, because the good guys over at Android Police have received a leaked APK for Google Play Games, and as is their way, they have done a teardown of the APK to see what secrets it holds...

I think this will help Google compete with console gaming, where they have Steam, PSN, XBox Live,... Good to see in game chat finally coming to mobile gaming, as well as cloud syncing.

Xbox LIVE is probably the best comparison

That's pretty bold to compare it to Xbox Live! But I don't doubt that Google could achieve it. Plus, Live costs money, but I bet this will be free! :)

Especially, cloud game save as a "backup". Rooting the device first time with a significant amount of game play will especially be happy, if the data can be successfully and smoothly retreived afterwards.

They should beef their graphic api and standardize their game pad control.

Playground sounded cooler. I really hoped android games would feature psn integration, but all this is damn fine to me
