Game Center problem. Help?

All of a sudden there's no Game Center account associated with my device. When I go to log in to my current one (I was lucky enough to get my real name - Joe Koch) it takes me to a "create new account" dialogue. I know I have the password correct, since putting in a different one prompts me to try again. Why is my account not logging in? Why does it prompt me for a "new account" if it recognizes my e-mail and password? What should I do?

This is super frustrating; Apple call-in support, the Genius Bar, and e-mail support have no ideas. Sigh...

never heard of such problem, thisis really super frustrating. Think of a guy like zincous he has already 1200+ achievements. Apple should get into this quickly and kil these nasty bugs in the system fast!
Sorry, mate!

As near as I can tell, the GC account got "detached" from my Apple ID somehow. And no one at Apple can figure out how or what to do about it. The Game Center account still exists somewhere (the name is still taken,) but I have no idea how I can go about getting it associated with my Apple ID again. I had like thirty friends and three hundred achievements, too...

This happened to me as well, weird.

Edit: I just fixed the problem, it appears. I made a new account using the Game Center app. I signed out from that account, signed in with my Apple ID again, and my regular account came back.

1. Dude, chill out, Mew's trying to HELP you.

2. It's happened to me before, and that works as long as you use the same information as before.
