Posting the story on BulkyPix's Game Centre line up, made me think that an AATG forumite's Game Centre username thread would be useful.

So kicking things off, my name is 'The Digital Boy'.

Can't use game centre. Apparently my lowly iPhone 2G isn't supported. :S

I didn't realise it was only available on the newer devices. I just looked and surprisingly the iPhone 3G isn't supported either but the iPod Touch 2nd Gen is.

You'd think they'd at least release it as a standalone app wouldn't you?

I hadn't looked into it because I assumed that my 2G touch wouldn't be up to spec, but it looks like it is. I don't get online for gaming much but I'll have a look all the same.

I'm on there as Judge-Fang. I'm never online but it'll be good to get some high score comparisons going

Last night was the first time I'd really used game centre (btw Espad - how desperate does that default friends request message sound!?) and I have to say I can't for the life of me think why older devices aren't/can't be supported. It's essentially OpenFeint, but without some of the features and some more annoying ones added. For instance, I can't view Rhythm's achievements on games I don't own too and clicking on a listed game takes me to the App Store to buy it.

I'm guessing Game Centre doesn't work with iPad. Anyone know if that will change when the OS update comes out?

Yeah, I think it will be included in the 4.2 update.

Finally got round to creating mine: relaxedcashew.

I'm sick of all the different gaming networks on the iPhone, and I was hoping Game Center would be a solution to somehow integrate them all - instead it's just added to the problem! It's definitely much more polished though, as you'd expect from Apple - it just needs more game support.

Got an iPhone 4 now and so will work out how to use this bad boy tonight. Hopefully HairyArse will be my username.

Is it just me or is Game Center a bit buggy atm? Achievements don't seem to be registering properly, for one thing.

Am I missing something? Where exactly is Game Centre? Is it its own app? Do you download it? Does it integrate itself into games ala Open Feint?

It's part of the 4.1 update, and comes (as an app) on the very first page.

Yeah, I noticed this too when comparing our Cut The Rope achievements the other day. For instance, it says I don't have the 'Bronze Scissors' award for collecting 50 stars, yet I have the Silver award for collecting 150! Same with the Rope Cutter (100 ropes) yet have the 800 rope cuts.

Hairy: It should be automatically installed on firmware 4.1 and appear as it's own icon. If you're worried about losing a jailbreak, you can JB 4.1 now...

Yeah, sometimes achievements do take a few days to sync, but it seems they do get there eventually.

Anyway - anyone else getting loads of friend requests from complete randoms? I'm guessing they found my ID info from this site...

Yeah I keep getting the odd random request too. If anyone wants their name taking out of the first post, let me know and I'll do so :)
