Flash gaming is just about to get better. Adobe is bringing full hardware-accelerated 3D graphics to both Flash and Air. It's also improving 2D graphics as well.

All this would mean that Adobe could bring console style gaming to the Flash platform and improve integration with social networking sites like Facebook. It also makes it easily to export finished games.

Sounds great! In the above video, Adobe Evangelist Andrew Trice and his wrinkled, yellow shirt talk us through the features.

Besides console quality gaming on browsers and smartphones, Flash and Air will also HD video support and full HD video with Surround Sound 7.1. Adobe Flash 11 and Air 3 are slated for release this October.
