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.

Not a bad deal always dig an Achievement system, just an added bonus to Apple. Do hope they add an all future games clause just to reign in some of the other Trophy system's that are out there like openfeignt and to unify them under one roof.

The lack of social media integration is really going to hurt this compared to the existing services already in place in many games. Poor choice.

Looks like a good first effort, but who knows how much it will really catch on.

I haven't tried this out yet, but alternatives such as Openfeint are doing such a great job already that this seems like a bit of a "me too" move by Apple. If it somehow integrates with the existing services it will be great though.

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.

@LiquidPenguins:  I think millions and millions of people disagree. There's a ton of amazingly fun games. The forgettable stuff is the stuff that is trying to be a PSP or console game and uses crap onscreen controls.

 " 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.

@VargTheViking: Think if you hit updates in the apps store, it should then update all your exsisting apps to run in game centre. You've probably figured this out by now :)

The number of app updates with gamecenter leaderboards  keeps going up. The system is a little bare bones compared to Xbox live but I think it’s a nice start.

Nice to see that achievement systems are growing on all platforms, really adds a lot to a game regardless of the achievements being very easy or very hard.

If Apple were decent programmers, they could make this work for any of their iOS devices like any normal games platform owner.

So far this looks promising, just need the number of games with this integration to catch up.

Too bad it's not available on the 1st gen iPod Touch. It would have been fun to give it a try.

I feel Game Center is a good start by Apple, but they still have a long way to go as a few things are missing especially on the developer side of things.

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.
