After asking this question to people on various forums it has come to our attention that game center is lacking some features that either Open Feint and Plus+ have, or that people think Game Center needs to be a better Gaming Network in which is worthy of it’s podium of the premiere Game Network for Iphones, Ipod touches and ipads(November).
In this article we outline the things (With the help of members of the “Touch Arcade Forums”) that Game Center Needs.
1. A change in theme.
As most of us all-ready know, allot of people generally dont like the new game center theme, so a change would be a good idea.
One idea that triggywiggy (Jack of Game Center FB) had was to include a selection of different color schemes. Similar to what is in App box Pro.
2. Total Game Center Achievement Points in Home Page.
It was a surprise to me that this wasn’t included in Game Center on initial release. The fact that I don’t know how good I am all together compared with friends is not something you think apple would miss.
I think this something that apple will be quick to add, it is really one of the main reasons for people wanting to stick with things like OF and Plus+.
3. Friend Chat
Another feature that Game Center misses is the ability to talk with your friends. I want to talk and Brag to my friends but really, unless you have an app like ebuddy you can’t do this.
I think this is another thing apple will be quick to add.
4. Profile Pictures
Simple to explain why. Just brings a new light into Game Center. Of course apple would have to monitor it though.
5. Check contacts and allow you to add them as friends
I have seen lot’s of apps implement this. I really thought apple would of thought of this.
6. Green light Next to Active Users
Defiantly needed. There’s nothing worse then challenging inactive users.
I wont be surprised if this is included in the next os update (Needs to be integrated with the ios software).
7. A tick next to players who have the game (Multiplayer).
What’s the point of challanging people ho don’t have that app? Defiantly needed
Once again, something apple will probably add.
Well that’s about all of the 28 ideas featured on the forums what I think Game Center needs. Some of the ones listed on the forum were either Impossible, stupid or were already included thats why there is only 7.
Well let you know when any changes are made. Thanks for reading.
