Yes, I know it's not the same thing, I'm just trying to save you a few hundred thousand dollars, OK? Read More

It's not my place to tell you what to do, and far be it from me to say that you have to support Android's standard online and social gaming featureset in your games. But it would probably be a good idea. Case in point: the over-the-top basketball game NBA Jam. The title just got updated with Google Play Games support. Read More
