has once again given a glimpse of what its Chrome
Web Store has to offer. Expected to launch this very October, the Chrome Web Store is a web-based portal for games and various contents — courtesy of the search engine giant.
Google's Chrome Web Store to launch this October?
The Chrome Web Store will become a centralized placed where users can search, buy and download content straight from the, well, straight from the Chrome browser. In a recent presentation, some of the features of the Web Store were shown. Game developers were also shown the process of getting their apps on the store.
To lure the developers, Google will only charge a 5% processing fee for the bought apps. This is significantly lower than what others are charging. For example, the Apple App Store is charging 30 percent of the revenue — likewise with the Android Market. Games developer will also be given the chance to publish their apps for free.
As for the payment mechanism, Google plans to provide a wide range of options. This could be where the Google and PayPal deal come into play, we believe.
Some games that were shown include the Chrome versions of Lego Star Wars, Plants vs. Zombies and Lemmings.
