Google has been toying with a games presence for quite some time. Its Web browser, Google Chrome, got its own game store in May of 2010, with the company investing $100-$200 million into Farmville dev Zynga two months later. Just weeks after that, rumors surfaced that the company was trying to bring social games to its own, as-yet-undefined, gaming service.

Now, a job listing has surfaced on Google's site that indicates that Google is definitely planning to get into the games business. The posting, which is for a games product manager at the company's expansive Mountain View, Calif., headquarters, touts a "rare opportunity to grow a brand-new business--Games at Google!"
