    To be honest, I have never heard of it before.

    Openfeint is not the same thing and how can it be killed? Nobody ever cared. Most people skipped the login in any games it came in.

    I hate OpenFeint. if I see that logo in an app, I will not download it. Some games that I have downloaded won't even let me play the game unless I create an account and log in, useless feature if your not on wifi or 3G (iPad on the road)

    no - for the same reason that iAds won't kill other ads companies. Nor will any phone kill any other phone.

    There's room in the marketplace for things other than game center

    OpenFeint will not die because of Game Center. They just announced that it is compatible with Game Center and will soon have cross-platform gaming (iPhone vs. Android) via a new feature called PlayTime. I think they will coexist.

    To some extent, I really hope so.

    All of these third party services (like OpenFeint and Crystal) are only adding bloat to games.

    The features within them are usually REALLY slow.

    I like the concept of OpenFeint. Hate the execution. Bring on Game Center.

    Really looking forward to using Game Center. I have plenty of apps that have OpenFeint and have never bothered to create an account on it.
    Game Center kind of seems like Xbox Live...but on the iPhone, and I love how Xbox Live works. I know a couple of people with iPhones and iPod Touches so will be interesting to see where this goes.

    I don't hate OpenFeint. Am I doing something wrong? Or wait.. maybe I do. I can't remember. But Game Center won't kill OpenFeint just like Plus didn't kill OpenFeint. Or Crystal. Etc.

    I do wish app makers would standardize, but it's not at the top of my wishlist. I participate in the networks as I can... none of them are really a PITA to me.
