  • Game Center Not Compatible With iPhone 3G


    When Apple releases iOS 4.1 later this week, Game Center finally will be made available to the public. Apple previewed Game Center last April, and now is set to release it to most iOS devices. Unfortunately, not everyone will be able to enjoy this new app.

    If you have a first-generation iPhone, iPhone 3G or first-generation iPod Touch, you are sadly out of luck. Fortunately, Apple has posted a compatibility chart outlining which devices will work with Game Center:



    Apple originally planned on supporting all iOS 4 compatible devices during its initial beta testing, but they removed iPhone 3G and second-generation iPod Touch support soon after. Now it seems that Apple has decided second-generation iPod Touch will in fact support Game Center in its forthcoming release of iOS 4.1.

    Game Center is a social networking app designed to make it easier for gamers to connect on their iOS devices. Gamers will be able to find other players, invite them to multiplayer games, and then post high scores on leaderboards. Some iOS games will have to be updated to take advantage of these new features.



    Epic Games, best known for their Unreal franchise, recently release Citadel for iOS 4. It was released as a demo to showcase the technical capabilities of their Unreal Engine on iOS devices. Now that Game Center is about to be released I hope Epic Games finishes this title soon. I canít wait to challenge my brother-in-law in Phoenix, AZ to a deathmatch, iPhone to iPhone. It will be great posting my wins on the leaderboard for all to see. May the best man win!

    Apple is expected to release iOS 4.1 with Game Center as early as tomorrow.

      This is the perfect example of those kind of people that complain about everything in life and that's how they never get anything.
      Tuis guy is like the people that complain about xbox live being $60 year. I mean a year!!!!! Who can't pay $60 a year??????
      This guy would complain about everything apple does. Well what other company sells devices that work together so easy. That the user interface is so easy to use and it feels good. What app store store has so many apps?
      What I'm trying to say is that if we look at what apple does with how everything is so easy to use and know about. Yes not everything is black and white but there's less crap on apple then other companies.

      Another thing people like this guy would complain about is netflix being $10 a month for movies and that not every one movie is free streaming.
      What Im trying to say is that people like this guy they can never be happy and pleased with what they have. They always have to complain.

      Entitled to a new processor????? Really??? You pay for a device not a service that will get you a new processor every time they come out with a new one. Live with it!!!!!

      Still I at people like him.

      You uhhhh......know I was joking, right? I have a 3G, 3Gs and an i4. It was a sarcastic jab at those who are SHOCKED that the processor in their 3G can't hang with a 3Gs or an i4 and fault Apple for that.

      Game Center (or the lack thereof) shouldn't be a deal breaker for anyone. There has never been online gaming on an iPhone. How can you miss something you never had. And furthermore, whatcha gonna play? Angry Birds co op? Free for all Fruit Ninja? Game Center looks to be poopoo from my perspective, but I'm a gamer. I like my lil iGames....when I'm waiting at the dentist, or bored at work. If I'm gonna jump online and git sum, it's gonna be my Xbox and it's gonna be a real game. Like MW2.....

      That sucks for people with a 3g iPhone I guess. My thing is...why don't you just upgrade? With a little bit of thrifty Craigslisting you could end up with a 3gs for $100 or less out of pocket. Seems worth it to me, especially if you're unlocked. I sold my 16gb first gen for $175 and got a 32gb 3gs for $280. I was more than happy to throw down, granted this was in June when lots of people were selling their phones. Worth a shot though.

      The 3G sucks, but the iPod 2G is worse and still you get Game Center, thanks Apple.

      looks like an even better reason for 3G owners to upgrade to an iphone 4.

      Stop whine about Game Center, it will be available on 3G with the next good jailbreak. It is easy to port it from the ipod 2g to iphone 3g because they are both arm6 devices.

      And to all of you who push people to upgrade, why dont you just shut up? If you can't help with any constructive advice it will be better not to talk at all, this way you will look smarter.

      On a side note, iOS4.1 on 3G (with alpha jailbreak) work like crap, i dont see any improvements in it.

      Also i have made Game Center to run on 3G, but i can not sign in, probably missing some dependence.

      Nobody is pushing people to upgrade as that is down to the individual. Just stating facts. The 3G is old hardware and as such unless you upgrade it then you are not going to get the experience you want. If someone goes out and buy a 3G now they are insane as for a little more they can get a 3GS or a 4. It's just a waste of money if you ask me. These are the people complaining here. This is no ones fault but themselves as before buying they didn't do any research.

      Hi Guys
      I just added the GAME CENTER App to my iPhone 3G 8gb on 4.0.2, i did it via SSHing the app is on the springboard as a white icon but if i press it, it loads up, and i fill in all the fields needed, but at the moment i dont seem to be getting the confirmation email which i believe sets up the gaming on your device ? not sure.


      I will keep at it.
      I think it might work when i upgrade to 4.1 which i will be doing once the Carrier unlock is out and working.
