The Game Center Thread of iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch Achievements

Since Apple's Game Center launched today, I thought we could have a thread for it. Anyone know what games support it yet?

Feel free to add me to your friends' list. My Game Center ID is SmarmyJerkface.

It's Apple's "Xbox Live". Achievements, friends lists, etc.

Re: The Game Center Thread of iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch Achievements

What's awesome about this is that when I worked at a giant communications company before they opted to shut down our remote office, we worked on an Xbox Live for Mobile Gaming platform, and they killed it after we finished all the work on it because it was weak and lame. And since I was a lowly engineer, my ideas were quelled and my voice of "If we're going to launch this, it needs to kick ass" was laughed at. WHO GOT THE LAST LAUGH NOW SUCKAS!!!!???

I haven't upgraded yet because I'm constantly on my corporate network and iTunes apparently doesn't know how to look at a proxy without shitting itself. I sure hope pinata242 hasn't been gobbled up yet

Updating the ipod touch and itunes is a process that makes all those forced PS3 updates seem quick and painless by comparison.

Is there a way to register a name if I don't have my ipod touch with me?

There are a few out now with support. Such as Field Runners and Flight Control. I think you can get a list on the iTunes store.

The build quality of Apple's products has failed me as I'm still on a 1st gen Touch with no signs of it ever dying. None of the new goodies will work for me. I might have to "accidentally" run it over.

Yah, kind of irritating. I haven't seen anything from Game Center so far that wouldn't run on a DS.
