iPhone 3G practically obsolete: No Apple Game Center support

Poor old iPhone 3G. Not only has Apple completely obliterated its usability with the iOS4 update, but now we learn that it won’t have Apple Game Center support either. Its days are clearly numbered.

A bit like Xbox Live, Apple Game Center will be an online gaming service where players can upload their scores to leaderboards and play against other gamers. Other gamers with iPhone 3GS and up, obviously.

Bit by bit, Apple is coercing us iPhone 3G users to ditch our old, not-quite-out-of-that-pesky-18-month-contract handsets in favour of newer models. How long before the iPhone 3GS gets similar treatment? Around the launch of the iPhone 5 next year, we expect.
