Facebook announces Steam competitor: Gameroom

After losing mobile gaming to iOS and Android, Facebook is making a big push into playing on PC with today’s developer launch of its Gameroom Windows desktop gaming platform. After months of name changes, beta tests and dev solicitation, Facebook opened up the beta build for all developers and officially named it Gameroom. The app is openly available for users to download on Windows 7 and up.

Nope, nope, nope, nope, nope.

But seriously. Oculus’ portal will undoubtably end up in here and that’s likely the main way it will get traction. I could be wrong but I don’t see any serious gamers being on board with this. Are you?
