In keeping with its push to be the second great gaming platform behind iOS, RIM has announced its own version of Game Center.
Called Games, it will be a standalone app that acts a social hub and a discovery tool.
Integrated with BlackBerry Messenger and the Scoreloop social gaming network, it will launch - time frame to be announced - with the usual ability to add friends, see what they're playing, show achievement and offer challengers.
Features such as multiplayer gaming, both turn-based and real-time are also planned.
The move is all part of RIM's concerted attempt to ensure that its key BlackBerry 10 release (hardware and software) offers developers a solid platform that they can release games on and make money from.
With Android seemingly now limited to free-to-play titles and suffering from very high piracy rates, RIM argues the strong security and payment options on BB 10 mean it can steal a march on Android, despite its install base being numbered in the hundreds of millions.
