What if the world's largest online social network decided to tap into the video game biz? We'll soon see. MySpace is planning a gaming portal of some type. It could be run-of-the-mill or the games could leverage the huge MySpace customer base - integrating a social component. Stay tuned.

Could MySpace lead the change within the social media game industry? What about the extremely successful social media site Facebook? Only time will tell.
