    Default 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.

    For people that are wondering, the second gen iPod Touch is still included because its processor isn't underclocked as much as the iPhone 3G, 532MHz versus 412MHz.

    Isn't it kind of obvious since the 2g and the iPT1 aren't getting 4.1

    Also, has the 3G gotten gamecentre in the betas?

    Why would this be surprising? The 3G is two years old. They want you to upgrade to the latest. Anyone that has a 3G should be eligible for sure. Next year it will be the 3GS. Can't say I really blame Apple. Every time I have to do any thing to my daughter's 3G it drives me crazy, it's so slow.
    If I can't mod it...I don't want it.

    The reason that they are keeping support for the ipt2g is because not as many people upgrade there iPod touches to the latest model.

    Not true, in most countries we use 3 year contracts. So many people with the 3G aren't eligible for an upgrade

    Yeah, that's kind of messed up. Looking at the specs, the iPod Touch 2g has the same internals as the iPhone 3g. So we know it can 'handle' it.

    After theming on the 3GS and seeing how fast the resprings were, I noticed how incredibly slow my iPod Touch was. Opening programs was a breeze on the 3GS, and even Cydia loaded way, way faster. The A4 chip and 512mb RAM on the iPhone 4 must fly!

    Lol @ everyone who sticks to the sluggish iPhone 3G. You should have sold it when it was still worth something.

    Maybe he doesn't want to be locked into a contract for another two years. Also, in the real world (and not fanboi-land) the 3G is still a kicka$$ phone.

Please buy our newer products......damn ya'll make a killing on the suckers (no offense to anyone here) that just have to have the new toy... your game got old apple and I am done with ya...

    Not arguing but just pointing out that many tech companies do this type of stuff.
