Games big part of Google Chrome
Making good on a promise to push games across its web and mobile platforms, Google has launched the Chrome Web Store with support for full 3D browser games.
LEGO Star Wars: The Quest for R2-D2 surprised the audience at the Google I/O conference in California, demonstrating web browser Chrome's ability to run full games. PopCap Games's Plants vs. Zombies was also shown.
Google is moving aggressively into gaming, a move seen as a threat to competitor Apple and its blockbuster line of portable devices. Unlike iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad games which requiring buying the device in order to play game, the Chrome Web Store is accessible through any web browser with many games available for free.
Free and premium games are expected to trickle onto the store in the coming weeks, but for now you can get a dose of PvZ and LEGO Star Wars action to tide you over until new games arrive.
