Google gearing up games division

by Michael Arsenault on Friday, June 24, 2011 , under

Google looks to be moving into the games industry with a brand new division called Games at Google.The search giant has put out a job ad for a product manager in the new business. The responsibilities of the role include driving feature requirements for "Google's gaming platform."

Back in October last year it was suggested that Google TV could eventually be set to take on WII and Kinect as the family game platform of choice in living rooms across the UK.

Google said that it "makes sense" for its new platform to offer video game apps to the family consumer in future.

Here's the full product manager job description for Google Games: "Rare opportunity to grow a brand-new business - Games at Google! We are looking for a strategic, technical and game-loving Product Manager to drive Google's gaming strategy." 

"You will design strategies for game distribution and discovery, player identity, game mechanics, and more. In addition to designing a great user experience and building out key partnerships, you will be significantly influencing Google's social platform as you work directly with a critical set of early adopters, game developers." 

"Interesting and impactful decisions involving social gaming, privacy, virality, business, and technical APIs await you and the strong, passionate team of gamers you will work with."
