Today Google made lots of news: They unveiled their new "cloud based" browser, they opened up a Google Store and, they started carrying a library of in-browser games including a new Mirror's Edge title.
Electronic Arts is teaming up with Google to bundle Poppit! with future releases of Chrome and say that thanks to Google's Web Toolkit the HTML5 version of the game has never looked better.
Other games coming to the Chrome store include quite a few titles we've already seen and played quite a bit on web browsers, games like Lords of Ultima, FIFA Superstars and Tiger Woods PGA TOUR Online.
One Chrome store surprise is the inclusion of Mirror's Edge 2D, which I hope is an awful lot like the wonderful iPhone and iPad versions of the game.
"The web has become an incredibly powerful platform for innovation, allowing users to do much more online than they ever imagined," said Sundar Pichai, VP of product management for Google Chrome. "The Chrome Web Store showcases the power of the open web and we're excited to have several gaming titles from EA as a part of it."
