However, Facebook doesn’t offer the games on Apple’s IOS mobile operating system, claiming that “it’s not clear if it’s feasible to publish these games in Apple’s app store.”. < / P > < p > earlier this year, Facebook and apple, the two American technology giants, clashed in the game field. At the time, Facebook wanted to offer more “mini games” to users through its IOS version of the game app, but was blocked by apple because it violated the rules of its app store. < / P > < p > Apple has also clarified these cloud Games launched by Facebook, saying that cloud games can be provided through Safari browser on Apple’s smartphone – this is the route that Microsoft xboxcloud and Amazon’s Luna cloud are looking for. But Facebook said there were limitations to providing cloud games through this approach, and made it clear that it was dissatisfied with the current developments. < / P > < p > some industry insiders have suggested to Facebook that this problem should be solved before launching more cloud game services, because “IOS platform has the highest consumption level of mobile game users. Cloud game providers should not miss these users. ” < / P > < p > for a long time, Facebook has provided games through its platform, including Farmville, candy crush saga and clash of clans. But so far, these games are based on flash or hmtl5 technology, running locally on the user’s device. < / P > < p > in contrast, the new cloud based games run on Facebook servers and stream game graphics to players, who can remotely control the game. Facebook says cloud games can offer players a more premium gaming experience. < / P > < p > but at present, this cloud game product line is limited to the five free games already available on Google play and Apple App Store: Wild racing 9, endless duel: adventure; the US professional golf tour, card game: Legend of King Arthur, and WWE superstar card. Facebook currently limits its cloud games to these free games, possibly to avoid criticism from competitors. But the company also plans to gradually turn other, more vocal, games into cloud games in the future. < p > < p > Facebook believes that by focusing on games designed for mobile phones rather than game consoles or PCs, users don’t need to buy additional game controllers or other special hardware at this stage. One consequence of this is that some early cloud gamers didn’t even realize that they were using cloud game services. A Facebook spokesman said the company intends to extend the cloud game service to the UK and other countries, but declined to give a specific date. < / P > < p > in terms of the current game pattern, it is meaningful for Facebook to enter the cloud game field at this time. Many industry observers believe that game streaming is the future development trend of the game field. But for now, game streaming is not a prime time technology because it is often plagued by connectivity or performance issues that often frustrate players. < / P > < p > as a result, Facebook is currently only focusing on mobile streaming games, which is very smart, because these mobile games are not limited by performance issues. < / P > < p > finally, whether Facebook, with its social media label, can be regarded as a serious game platform still has a big question mark. But with big companies like Amazon, Microsoft and Google betting on cloud games, it’s certain that Facebook also wants to attract gamers’ attention. Google said the proposed media negotiation rules would put its free services in Australia at “risk”
