Game Center no longer for iPT2G or iPhone 3g

Apple has decided to block the feature on the iPod Touch 2G and anything older. I myself am a little disappointed because I am confident enough that app that really only connects to servers to relay data, such as high scores, and provides unified achievements could at the least be run on the iPod Touch 2g.

It is says that any newer iPod Touch models will work with game center so I would assume that this mean the iPod Touch 3G since it uses the same processor as the 3GS. I'm hoping that when a jailbreak for 4.1 is released that it will enable the feature like the 4.0 jailbreaks enabled the the other barred features. Eventually I will upgrade to anewer device but this new model every year idea is pretty dumb to me anyways.

I don't understand the reason behind this decision. Older devices handle current online leaderboards perfectly.

There is a big thread about this on MacRumors.com

I too can't see how they can justify leaving out the second gen Touch - especially as Apple still sell it. And the 3G iPhone they stopped selling less than three months ago.

Pure greed by the mighty Apple wanting your hard earned to buy their newest products.

Steve jobs... You need to get a life >.>. This will probably boost jailbreaks even more because it unbars most things.
