Apple to add social gaming network to iPhone

April 8, 2010

Watch out online console gaming networks, Apple has climbed into the ring.

At its iPhone OS 4.0 press event today, Apple announced, among other things, Game Center. Game Center is a social gaming network for the iPhone very similar to Xbox Live and the Playstation Network; it has a friends list, achievements and leaderboards. Game Center is planned for a summer launch.

There’s a good chance Game Center will be successful, given how many games are on the iPhone — over 50,000 according to a slide from their presentation. Now, there are gamers that use the iPhone (I can think of two in particular), but will your average iPhone user – college professor, business person, soccer mom, etc – care about a social gaming network? Let us know what you think by dropping us some comments!
