If you are an avid gamer, especially on Android this could be some potentially awesome news. The hugely popular company GameFly is looking to get into Android full steam. If you've used their service for console gaming you'll know they are a Netflix-style monthly payment service for unlimited gaming. They've now announced the GameFly Gamestore for Android and more.

GameFly has announced they'll be opening up their own Gamestore for Android that will hopefully compete directly with the Google Play Store, NVIDIA's Tegra Zone and more. GameFly also wants to release their own games almost like Gameloft, and have set a large amount of funds aside to start development for mobile games. Here's a quote from their co-founder:

"GameFly is dedicated to giving consumers the best user experience possible, and to be their single destination for console, PC and mobile gaming needs," said Sean Spector, GameFly co-founder and SVP of Business Development and Content. "We plan to be a leading player in mobile games by launching our retail GameStore for Android and helping to fund mobile developers of all sizes to publish, promote and sell their smartphone and tablet games."

GameFly will be offering expertly curated Android games along with top sellers, most popular, and even daily deals like many other competitors in the "app store" front. They will be releasing their own games, as well as helping the struggling developer out that needs additional funding and throwing those games exclusively into their own store. They are accepting email entries from developers right this minute at Gamedev@gamefly.com and expect their first title to launch sometime this summer. More details are available from the official GameFly press release.
