A Google job ad has seemingly confirmed that the US search company is getting into games.

Google’s searching for a product manager to work on something called “Games at Google”.

Says the ad: “We are looking for a strategic, technical and game-loving Product Manager to drive Google’s gaming strategy.

“You will design strategies for game distribution and discovery, player identity, game mechanics, and more. In addition to designing a great user experience and building out key partnerships, you will be significantly influencing Google’s social platform as you work directly with a critical set of early adopters, game developers.

“Interesting and impactful decisions involving social gaming, privacy, virality, business, and technical APIs await you and the strong, passionate team of gamers you will work with.”

    Lets see 50k for development with 6-9month time table with returns of upward of 1000%. What company wouldn’t say no to that shit? Don’t like it don’t play it these games will not be going anywhere with phones having access to the internet and Facebook, and some games even being able to support 3D. Get over it.
