Completely agree. These bubbles are anything but flat and it's also too similar colour-wise with the new photos icon, an icon I like.
The bubbles are suppose to represent a new way to display stats like games, friends, etc, in game center. Unfortunately they again use 3D bubbles instead of say flat circles.
Apple were so desperate to change game center but unfortunately they rushed the alternative. Hopefully they will wise up before the fall.
