Game Center on Multiple Devices Help

I have a 3GS, and my wife has a iPhone 4 and we use the same iTunes account.

my question is can she have her own Game Center ID on her device? right now it looks like my Game Center ID is on her device as well as mine.

how can I make her own Game Center ID?

Tap on the "Account: [email]" banner to sign out.

Then at the bottom of the login screen, "Create New Account"

He has two devices

Plus you can use many Game Center accounts on one device, you just have to keep logging out and back in to switch between them.

Ah, yeah one per iTunes account.

But that's what "create new account" is for.

She will still be able to use their main itunes account to buy games and play on her device to share that account. But she can have her own Game Center account to collect achievements separate from his.

Thanks it works. I created an account for her but under her friends tab she doesnt have the + in the top right corner to add friends. Everything else is working fine though

Update incase this ever happens to anybody. She had the game center options set to "off" under Restrictions in the iPhone Settings. So if anybody is ever missing the requests tab or cant add friends in game center, take a look in settings.
