    Am I the only one who thinks the pool table inspired Game Center UI is ugly and cheap?

    Not fond of the pool table look or general navigation. Also not fond of the "if you don't have an iPhone, well you don't have an iPhone" tag line.

    Anybody else think this is aimed squarely at Nintendo?

    I love GameCenter, it's probably my favorite recent feature. I also really like the way it looks. It's the "If you don't have an iPhone" line I just can't get behind. Sounds like the guy is such a jerk every time he says it. I hope they don't make any more like that.

    The comments on that Apple video aren't disabled. Something must be terribly wrong.

    Gaming and the iOS ecosystem is the next big thing for Apple. I get the feeling we're going to see a lot of development here between the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, and AppleTV.

    Content and uses is king.. way more-so than hardware specs and Apple knows this. Specs don't mean crap to the general consumer... they want functionality and abilities.

    looks a bit cheap to me as well... i think was a way for apple to gain legitimacy for the iPhone/iPad (& ecosystem) as a gaming platform against xbox/sony/nintendo.

    Nintendo releases their newest portable game machine -- the 3DS -- in two days.

    So is it a coincidence that Apple released a new ad about gaming today? The iPhone is increasingly competing with these game-centric machines, after all...

    You know, am I the only one who thinks that the Game Center popups are annoying? I mean when I'm playing Cut the Rope I don't care if my friends know that I'm playing.
