Game loft and Game Center

Anyone know why there seems to be no Game loft games with Game Center?

Seems they've invested pretty heavily in their own proprietary Gameloft Live service which does the same thing and allows them to cross-promote their games like crazy.

There are Gameloft games with GameCenter

-Dungeon Hunter 2
-Nova 2
-Star Battalion

And they have said they will include it in more games to.

Maybe you should research this before you say things like this.

they easily could update some of their games with some neat achievements and gamecenter but somehow the "big players" (EA, Gameloft et al.) dont feel that way and give a ** on updates with gamecenter, so hoped for some of them as I read gamelofts star battalion has gc...

Ok, But my point is Gameloft do use Gamecenter.

I prefer Gameloft Live anyway. In terms of achievements, Game Center is stupid. I don't know and don't care how many achievement points I have in Game Center. To me, it's pointless. So many casual games offer Game Center support that, much like with Open Feint, it takes away whatever meaning that the achievement system might have. Ulta simplistic/casual games should not offer achievements. With a lot of these games there is, in my opinion, nothing to "achieve" in the first place. Since Gameloft does not develop any casual games and therefore Gameloft Live does support any casual games, it's the only achievement system to me that has any inherent value.

I say they put gamecenter compatibility with every game and the owner of the idevice choose if they want to use it or not. Who's with me?
