Zynga CEO Mark Pincus has indicated that the social game company is working on enabling cloud support for games like Words with Friends and FarmVille. He notes that this may one day include game consoles.
“Right now we are building back-end technology, so that your game state can be saved and served up in difference screens/devices,” Pincus said. “The interaction cues will take from the different devices. In other words, you can play a game on a computer and call it up on Xbox and you resume from the point you left off, except the game play will now be customized for the Xbox controller.”
