Video game rental service GameFly revealed today its expansion into mobile game publishing for the iOS and Android platforms as well as forging a GameFly GameStore for Android later this fall.

“GameFly is dedicated to giving consumers the best experience possible and to be their single destination for console, PC, and mobile gaming needs,” GameFly co-founder Sean Spector said. “We plan to be a leading player in mobile games by launching our retail GameStore for Android and helping to fund mobile developers of all sizes to publish, promote, and sell their smartphone and tablet games.”

GameFly expects its first published title this summer, but no further info is yet available on the game’s content and genre. Is it too early to presume that all GameStore items will be prefaced with “GameFly Games Galore”?
