I pretty much agree with the article. If more games support it or some new, better games are released with Game Center support then it seems like a great service. Especially with regular updates from Apple which are sure to come. Just not into the whole idea of re-playing all my games again for the sole purpose of getting achievements.
Apple's Game Center Is Now Available
Glad to see this. I have low expectations, for now, but given Apple's track record I do think they will continue to make improvements as time goes on. This will keep getting better (unlike the sad Wii online situation), and so getting it out the door was a good first step.
" You can launch games right out of the Game Center app, meaning you could always shove all of your games onto the last page of your phone in folders that you'll never have to sift through."
Yeah this is very handy, and god do I love to be 'validated' by achievements in every aspect of my life, my tombstone will just be a URL to my GB profile.
They really need to get the NGmoco guys and EA to update their previous titles and all future titles to make this a worthwhile thing. I would also like to see the ability to send score challenges for these games to show some bragging rights to your friends. This is a good start with a lot of room to grow.
