Press Release:

Today cloud gaming service Agawi is unveiling GameZen, an app that aims to bring thousands of games to Windows 8.

GameZen will offer cloud-based streaming of exciting action, strategy, mid-core and other genres of games to all Windows 8 devices, with over 1,000 games already available right at the software’s launch date. Because of Agawi’s capacity to make use of the cloud’s flexibility and third-party storage, the platform has the immense potential to continue adding games at a rapid rate and ultimately aims to stream hundreds of thousands of games to Windows 8 devices.

“GameZen is a huge opportunity for both developers and gamers,” said Agawi executive chairman Peter Relan. “We’re focusing on connecting Windows 8 users with their favorite games and helping them find new games they love, for a fun and accessible gaming experience. Developers also benefit from a huge new audience available to them and the Windows 8 devices that are extremely well-suited to gaming, like the Surface tablet.”

With Windows 8 expected to beat Windows 7 in terms of user numbers—which surpassed 670 million licenses sold—distributing games through GameZen offers developers a huge opportunity to access millions of new users. Long-tail developers especially will benefit, with no difficulty in porting games to Windows 8 via Agawi and hitting the market quickly for a huge discovery opportunity.

Games are already a major component of the Windows 8 app store, representing nearly 20 percent of all apps.

    Amazing news! it sounds a a great opportunity for developers and consumers (gamers). I had to change my region to US to download it. but it looks nice, the only bad thing for some it’s this app needs Facebook login but its ok for me.
