  • Facebook is joining the game streaming world, taking on the likes of Sony, Microsoft, Google, Amazon and Nvidia.
  • Facebook’s new service, which is part of its Facebook Gaming project, will offer people access to smartphone games like Gameloft’s Asphalt 9: Legends racing title without the need to download or install an app.
  • Facebook signaled it has bigger hopes for its cloud gaming efforts but wants to focus on mobile games for now in part because its executives believe game streaming technology isn’t broadly ready yet for graphically intense console and PC games.
