There was an attempt at demoing multiplayer in Riptide 2, but the connection couldn't be made. Barra blamed it on the overloaded network in the Moscone Center, and we're hoping that really was the issue. According to Google, these services can work on any Android devices having Android Version 2.2 or above.

Google has already pulled in a number of big name developers to Play Games Services, including Miniclip, Glu, Omni, Noodlecake, Gameloft, and more. Already, World of Goo, Super Stickman Golf 2, Beach Buggy Blitz, Kingdom Rush, Eternity Warriors 2, Osmos, Triple Town, Modern Combat 4, and Eufloria HD have pushed updates to their apps that support the new features.
