    I noticed we seem to missing a general GameCenter discussion thread. Either that or I somehow missed it when I did a search...An I figured since there's no GameCente chat, this thread might be a decent idea...

    We already have a GC name sharing thread, so please don't use this thread to post your GC name...

    This thread is for various discussions about the GameCenter app, GameCenter games, or anything else you can think of(other than name sharing)

    So..I'll start..


    Has anyone heard whether or not anyone is working on a GameCenter winterboard theme? I despise the current theme. I much preferred the "beta" look, over it's current poker table look...

    Chat support would be good, but voice chat would be awesome! Especially for games that require teamwork. And I don't mind the current theme. It's not great, but it's fine for me

    I agree, it needs a chat.

    What I think it needs is a specific chat for each game, as well as general chats, and private friend chat... I doubt we'll ever get that, but we can hope.

    Same here. And also, the UI fails. I even liked the Beta version more! It's getting winterboarded.

    Another thing I think would be nice but not overly needed, is a "gamercard" type thing..like my sig, but a bit more info and an image instead of just text..

    Could include:

    # of games
    # of achievements
    # of friends
    Total score (adds up all the points you got from achievements)
    Last played game
    Most played game

    Not sure what else.. Some of that(the ones that aren't already in GameCenter) could be added to the app itself also..just to add a few more things to at least make GameCenter KINDA worth it...

    IMO it needs a way to send PM's like on Xbox Live.

    Also I have an older device, if I delete around 50 friends will my friends tab load faster?

    Well, I have 60 friends and it only takes a couple seconds to load friends..So I don't see how much faster it could get..
