Hot off yesterday’s Game Centre Kindle Fire announcement, Amazon has more gaming goodness up its sleeve. The retail giant has expended its marketplace to include free-to-play and MMO games via a system called Game Connect. The platform allows users to make in-game purchases via an existing Amazon account, giving the site a cut off the profit and providing another secure payment option for nervy gamers. World of Tanks, Super Monday Night Combat and Pandora Saga are already on board; find out more here.
