From today’s WSJ, news that MySpace is seeking to create a destination for games. Now, while not pertaining strictly to a three dimensional virtual world or MMOG, we wanted to note this development as it is yet another example of a dynamic social network actively introducing & promoting gameplay – and the social features thereof – to change the dynamics of traditional communication, collaboration, and interaction.

“…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.

…The companies plan to incorporate features into the MySpace games area that allows users to socialize by inviting friends to participate in multiplayer games and to chat while they are playing.”
