Console Quality games on Facebook

When we built Gaikai we wanted to focus on certain core ideas that we believe video game publishers care about right now or will definitely care about in the future.

Examples are growing a digital audience, having a relationship with them and massively increasing the reach of their games. For gamers we wanted to make all games free to try, removing as much delay and friction as possible.

We believe that if we can make great games much more accessible we can help grow the industry.

Today we announced we can now put just about any game into Facebook, meaning the game actually appears inside the canvas page. Give Sniper an try to see what I mean.
