ZYNGA to make their own social network game site
Zynga, the company behind American social games like Farmville and CityVille was preparing his own service game. This means people can play outside of Facebook, Google + and Myspace. Most games that have to go into Facebook first, cut 30% of each sale.
Zynga, a game maker who get about 200 million active users, is making 95% of their money through Facebook. They released four of the five most widely played games in the social networking site.
Keza MacDonald, editor at IGN.com said the game who moved from the Facebook would give a significant effect.
“If the big game companies like Zynga launched their own websites than survive better in the Facebook game, it would undermine the credibility of Facebook, which could change the attention to the social game.”
“Gains in social games can be more directed to a cell phone program,” he said.
Zynga said it will redesign their site to be launched end of March, the site claimed it easier for people who want to play because of more rapid and direct conversations with the access and features a message board.
Top five games to be shown in later Zynga.com are including:
CastleVille, CityVille, Words with Friends
Users no longer need to log in using your Facebook account.
Manuel Bronstein, Zynga.com general manager, said the new site is not intended to move users from Facebook.
“This will help users to make their Facebook profiles separate from the online habits while playing Zynga brought closer to the user,” he said.
“If they want to play on Facebook, if they were playing with mobile phones, if they play on the site, I want them to connect with Zynga and should not be forced through a goal.”
The new site will include Zynga games from other companies, including from the Row Sham Bow and MobScience, which make up the game in Woodland Heroes and Coffee Bar.
