iGoogle's new gaming themes

At a party in San Francisco Wednesday night, Google unveiled the latest addition to its iGoogle start page service: a collection of themes designed by video game publishers. As pictured, Google offers a directory of the new gaming themes.

Like others produced through the iGoogle themes API, the new ones will change throughout the day.
