Question about Ipad and iPhone game saves

So if I load an iPhone game on my iphone and ipad (which I don't have yet but hopefully soon). Will the save files be backed up in iTunes seperatly for each device, or is whatever device I synced last going to be the save state that is backed up on iTunes?

When I connected my iPad, iTunes asked if I wanted to restore my iPhone backup or if it’d be a new device. I set it as a new so it is a different backup and everything.

iPhone 6 and iPad Mini iOS 8

you can restore the iPad from an iPhone/iPod backup it seems, though I haven't done that. It won't replace the iPhone one though

To answer ur question....

The iPhone & the iPad games saves are not backed up.
Probably, GameCentre is going to address that.... the probability is BIG

I will have my ipad this week and have been thinking about how to set it up. Is there an advantage to having the ipad be a new device if I will be using it and my 3g touch both?

As long as I use the same computer, I can put all of my paid games from my touch on to my ipad, correct? I know this works with my other touch systems but I don't remember how I set them up.
