MySpace to debut casual-game site in January

Social games from white-label game maker Oberon Media will be available for users of the News Corp.-owned social-networking site early next year.

News Corp.-owned social-networking site announced on Tuesday that it has partnered with casual-game maker Oberon Games, part of Oberon Media, to create a "channel" of social games.

Slated to launch in January, MySpace Games will allow users of the service to play games against other MySpace members and embed game widgets in their profiles.

Additionally--as it seems that there just can't be a social-networking announcement without talk of the "D" word--developers will be able to submit ideas for new games, and Oberon will be providing a developer toolkit when the game site launches.

Currently, the subdomain encourages users to "stay tuned for updates." It offers them an array of video game-related videos instead of actual games.
