Game Center is Apple’s latest major addition to the iPhone & iPod touch. If you’re familiar with OpenFeint or Plus+, those are somewhat similar to what Game Center brings to iOS. It’s leaderboards and achievements wrapped around a social network of your best online friends and millions of other gamers. For now, Game Center is available on iOS4.1 iPhone and iPod touch devices. Game Center will come to the iPad in iOS4.2 this November.
Don’t worry, your hard-earned OpenFeint high scores and achievements are still there. In the latest version of OpenFeint, version 2.7.1, you’ll see Game Center high scores sit right in there with your OpenFeint scores. The game even automatically submits your previous accomplishments to Game Center!
When the Air Hockey update hits the streets, just sign in to Game Center using the standard Apple “Sign In” pop up and you’ll be on your way to OpenFeint and Game Center world domination. Air Hockey version 1.11 with Game Center will be out soon!
If you don’t have it, go grab Air Hockey now!
