News Corp, owners of MySpace, have revealed that they are planning to turn the socialising website into a place for online video games. Speaking at Fortune Brainstorm tech conference in California, the company’s digital boss, Jonathan Miller, said the service will be a “major focus”.

“MySpace is and will be more in the future a gaming platform, a space for people to meet and play games,” said Miller.

“If you look at the big activities online, games right now is number three. Communications, search, games. So it’s clearly going to be a major focus.”

It comes as the site suffers dwindling numbers due to users of the site going to sites like Facebook or Twitter.

    Myspace should concentrate on music and clearing out spam.

    Once they’ve got that right they can think about other things.

    “Myspace should concentrate on music and clearing out spam.”

    They curbed the spam problem a *long* time ago.
