Verizon Wireless and PlayPhone today announced the new Games Portal, a socially-connected gaming platform that will be installed on Verizon's Android devices moving forward. The Game Portal allows users to find and play mobile games with their online friends, and share scores and achievements across various social networks. Verizon subscribers will be able to bill game purchases directly to their Verizon account. The Games Portal will be preloaded on the newest Android devices first, but will eventually be pushed to other Verizon Android devices through a software update. Verizon didn't say if it would offer Games Portal to other platforms, such as BlackBerry, iOS, or Windows Phone. According to PlayPhone, it is offering game developers a dedicated SDK (software developer kit) to help them add social game discovery capabilities, including recommendations, invites, and leaderboards, to their games. PlayPhone also believes that developers who create apps specifically for Games Portal will have more visibility than those publishing to the Google Play Store. Verizon didn't say which device(s) would be first to come with Games Portal preinstalled.

Great more bloatware on phones that you cant remove how nice Verizon.
I bet everyone on Verizon will use this app everyday! Laughing Laughing Laughing
This could be a GREAT IDEA if implemented correctly. Online & Social Games is one of the things that boosted Facebook's popularity.

And one more application should cause anyone's device a performance problem; unless it is a low end POS. :twiste...
