Tencent’s VP Ma Xiaoyi revealed at GMGC  that Tencent would soon launch a mobile game platform integrating all mobile game titles on Tencent’s platforms.

The platform would help game developers to reach Tencent’s users, he said, that social ties among QQ users would increase stickiness in a big way. Also, Tencent would provide developers with cloud-based hosting environment optimized for games.
