Back in October, Zynga announced an upcoming social platform for games codenamed Project Z. Now officially known as Zynga Platform – and it's a pretty substantial offering. After seeing the service first hand, there seems to be little doubt that Zynga Platform should become an instant hit with both gamers and developers alike.

Launching in beta later this month, Zynga.com will become Zynga's destination for social gaming.
To start, players can enjoy CityVille, CastleVille, Hidden Chronicles, Zynga Poker and Words With Friends on Zynga.com. Despite speculation that Project Z was Zynga's way out of Facebook, that couldn't be farther from the truth. Facebook is here to stay. In fact, Zynga.com requires that every user has a Facebook account.
Since Zynga.com requires a Facebook account, players' hard-earned game boards and Facebook Credits will all be available to them. For instance, if players were to log into CityVille on Zynga.com and a moment later log into the game on Facebook, they would see at the exact same game board. However, Zynga.com more about what's happening around the games than changing the games themselves.
