Boosting the videogame platform of MySpace will become a key initiative of the social networking site that has been seriously challenged by Facebook and Twitter. 

"MySpace is and will be more in the future a gaming platform, a space for people to meet and play games," said Jonathan Miller, who’s the chief digital officer for MySpace owner News Corp. Miller said his remarks at the Fortune Brainstorm: TECH conference in Pasadena, California, on Thursday, July 23,  Reuters reports. 

News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch recently said MySpace should become an "entertainment portal." He did not say exactly how that would involve the News Corp’s TV or other divisions.

But Miller made it clear that videogaming was an opportunity for MySpace.

Quoting ComScore numbers, Reuters reported taht in April Facebook had 307 million unique visitors to 125 million unique visitors on MySpace.
