We recently received great details and photographs of the Apple Game Center which will be accessible both on the iPad and unlocked iPhone4. Although this sort of online game network is not really anything new as the world has already seen Xbox Live but we feel that the Game Center definitely needs a change graphically as the preview that we have got does indeed only show the basic details of the service and indeed is nothing much in comparison to the others which are available in the market. Not only graphically, but we also thankfully got to check out the changes also in the iOS 4.1 SDK which we do welcome. Let us look closer to the design of the Game Center.
Graphics on the opening log in screen is much better than what it used to be and the look is far more inviting than before. As was the case before, you can get your account created and sign in from this page directly which will redirect you to the “Me” page which gives you the account details. Here you can change your status and shuffle through your friends lists as well as the games and requests that you have pending. Friend requests can be tracked by a special nickname or the account ID which all of the users are given in the Game Center domain. Good news for parents is that they can actually have some control over what their children will play and with whom they interact with while playing.
We are pretty pleased with the update for the Game Center and the app indeed looks pretty impressive now and is much better than what it was before in the phone. We will not give the final verdict just yet as the time we had with this device was pretty less but we feel that this could make a serious dent in the existing online gaming market.
