Games coming to Google+ - report

New social network to take on Facebook?

Recently launched social networking service Google+ is soon to get gaming features, according to the site's help pages.

As reported by Slash Gear, Google help pages referenced something called a Games Stream, where you'll be able to check for updates on games your playing.

"If you're looking for updates shared from games, check out your Games stream," it read, before being pulled earlier today.

The Games Stream link led to a 404 error page.

Hints that Google+ will soon support games have also been spotted in the site's source code, which references a number of different interfaces, including "/_/games/getGameFriends", "/_/games/getActivities" and "/_/games/postToStream".
