just curious what you guys would rather see gamecenter or openfeint-

Do you guys use these services? Whenever I see these in a game most of the time I ignore it.

OpenFeint has a feature to integrate Game Center along with it. So you get all the features of both, while achievements unlock for both services.

More and more games are using this. I think the best implementation of it is Dead Runner, they have buttons on the menu for both services to view achievements/leaderboards for each.

Game Center while lacking in some features - keeps it straight to the point. When I saw that Fruit Ninja would still have OpenFeint support and not full blown GC support I was sorta turned away. But that's my personal opinion.

Gamecenter because it's not slow as balls. But ideally go for both so people below 4.whatever can still have some sort of gaming network.

Game center cuz it's official. And openfeint is really dull.

Cool, good luck making the game! I don't care for either online scoring system though.
