MySpace, already a leading online provider of music and video, is beefing up its presence in another sector of entertainment -- games -- through a deal with Oberon Media Inc.

The online social network, a unit of News Corp., announced a plan to create a destination for games on the site through a deal with New York-based Oberon, a closely held company that distributes games to a variety of high-profile online partners. The games section on MySpace, due to be launched in January, will feature hundreds of free "casual" games -- easy-to-play titles that are part of the fastest growing sector of the games industry.

With Facebook opening up its platform and app developers going crazy, I assume gaming will become part of that environment. Probably a smart move by MySpace.

it is more than smart because the games will be an ad supported property which will probably help MySpace take the lead in selling advertising.
