Apple release GameCenter for iPhone

Apple have just released a new firmware update for the iPhone and iPod Touch. iOS 4.1 lets users access the GameCenter app, which appears on the home screen of the device.

GameCenter is Apple’s answer to Xbox Live on mobile devices, and gives users the ability to create friends lists, invite friends to games, compare high scores on leaderboards, and adds achievements to games – much like PS3 Trophies/Xbox Achievements.

At the moment there seem to be very few games that are compatible with the service, but we’re sure there will be a deluge shortly, as developers update their apps.

The iPad is getting the same service in November with iOS 4.2., and you can update your iPhone 4/3GS or iPod Touch from iTunes right now.

Unfortunately not many apps support GameCenter just now.

I've been addicted to gaming since my parents bought an Atari console way back in the 70's. I progressed to the iconic Speccy, Amiga, and all the Playstation platforms. Having seen games evolve from single pixel bat and ball, to HD constructed environments, gaming has changed much from my early years. Having defeated the rock hard R-Type on the Speccy, the biggest challenge I've faced so far is putting up with the hordes of American teens spouting abuse in the current generation of consoles, noob indeed!
