Google’s Push for Better Games

The two-day Game Developers Conference kicks off today in San Francisco and Google will be there promoting Android. In fact, members of the Android team will be presenting a handful of sessions including development in Java and/or C++.  They’ll also make themselves available for Q&A’a, product demonstrations, and feedback for budding developers.  For the lucky folks who pre-registered for conference, you’ll be walking away with a Droid or Nexus One.

In a related note, Google announced yesterday their updated Android NDK (r3) is out and offers direct access to OpenGL ES 2.0 features.  Essentially this means developers are able to create better, richer, and more detailed games with the tools in the NDK.

    Gamers are the top customers of Google. I think that this would be a good idea and will really help more people be aware on Google’s motto. I think from now on, Google will be my best friend.

    It would be an excellent information for the lovers of games as Google pushes games as in the case of Google’s updated Android NDK (r3) offering direct access to OpenGL ES 2.0 features. Thanks. Hair Extensions

    Intriguing how a cell phone may replace all other handheld game devices as the primary outlet for portable gaming… however, the issue right now is that a cellular device may lack the storage space for the graphics rich games Google is now promoting.
