Crytek launches social gaming network The developer has expanded into a hot market.
Crytek, the company behind the Crysis series, has announced the launch of Gface, their browser-based, social gaming platform.

The platform will be run by a newly created affiliate, also called Gface, says Joy.

Much like other social networks, Gface will make it easier for gamers to find casual (or hardcore) games, and find other people to play them with. Because the platform is in-browser, you will need to install a plugin dubbed "Seed Engine," which allows for the streaming gameplay with no further installation required.

Right now, the platform is in closed beta, but you can try to get in here: Gface Closed Beta

Will the games be console ports?

I jest (initial Crysis 2 nerdrage kicking in)! Seriously, though, I get the impression that gaming on social networking sites has kind of tapered off in the past half a year or so, so I'm not sure I'm convinced there's much of a market for this. I could be wrong though, curious what others think.
