Facebook gaming was recently given a big transformation after Gaikai launched the beta of its Facebook app. As David Perry, Gaikai’s CEO, explained to WebProNews, the cloud gaming service is bringing console quality games to the social giant.
It’s clear that gaming platforms such as Zynga have had tremendous success on Facebook. Therefore, Perry believes that gamers will also respond to Gaikai’s offerings, which include, Saints Row: The Third, Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, Magicka, Sniper: Ghost Warrior, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, Orcs Must Die!, and Farming Simulator 2011.
Through this announcement, gamers will have the ability to play directly on the Facebook platform. Furthermore, game developers will have the opportunity of potentially reaching hundreds of millions of new gamers.
Perry told us that Gaikai’s goal is to make video gaming as accessible as music and movies. He believes its cloud gaming Facebook app is one step in making this happen.
