Amazon Adding Virtual Currency For Kindle

As if there wasn’t enough virtual currency roaming around from free-to-play games and consoles. Amazon has decided to get in on the action with the Amazon Coin. The coins will be for the Kindle Fire tablet in an attempt to monetize and drive more game sales.

They will be released in May in the U.S. And Amazon in order to get customers behind it, will be giving away tens of millions of these coins. The theory being that once they have them, this will encourage the tablet owners to buy more.

Developers who are already launched on the Amazon’s Appstore don’t have to do anything as there will be an automatic update. However, if your game hasn’t launched yet, there is the April 25th cut off for the automatic update.
