Amazon has made a move to bring a bit more gaming power to their Amazon Fire TV set-top box. In an announcement today, Amazon has brought GameFly’s streaming service to their set-top box in an attempt to offer owners, and future owners, more gaming possibilities with Amazon Fire TV. The service itself hasn’t fully launched onto all platforms and all regions yet, which is interesting since it is now available for Amazon’s Fire TV.
Back in April of this year we talked about GameFly mentioning plans in one of the Shacknews podcasts about getting into funding Android game developers and Android game publishing. Now GameFly has come out to officially confirm this as well as their plans to open up their own GameFly GameStore for Android.
Following in the footsteps of the nVisions digital magazine, Gamefly have released their own interactive digital publication as well called GameQ. As you might expect from gaming industry themed publication, GameQ will contain in-depth stories, interviews and more. Just like the nVision’s magazine as well, the GameQ magazine is available only for tablets.
Gamefly is looking to expand their business which currently has been fairly successful with the game rental end of things. However, what they are looking at in terms of expansion is to move into mobile games for both Android and iOS, starting with funding game developers.
GameFly has been working it’s way into the mobile scene for a little under a year now having released an app not too long ago which was more of an informative app where you can find news and information about games across plenty of platforms along with reviews, screenshots, videos and more.
