Game Center for OSX to offer cross-platform gaming with iOS

One little gem for gamers at WWDC today is a new Game Center for OSX that will allow players to play with friends on iOS when games are available on both platforms.

Combined with pixel-for-pixel mirroring that was also announced for the new version of Mountain Lion, this is going to be pretty sweet. The WWDC demo showed CSR Racing playing on an iPad against a user on a MacBook.

Apple also took the opportunity to boast that they've got over 130 million accounts, 5 billion scores posted per week, and that 67 of the top 100 games have integration. Also, you can now explicitly challenge your friends to beat your Game Center high scores.

More news coming out of our WWDC keynote liveblog as it happens!

Game Center for OSX to offer cross-platform gaming with iOS


I do agree with all of the concepts you have introduced to your post. They are really convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for beginners. May you please prolong them a little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

I upgraded to os x mountain lion and logged into game center and opened a game center supported game on my mac but I am unable to take the game off my game center list. Any ideas how to? I've already tried deleting the game, but there is no pop up on my mac like on ios that asks if you want to keep or remove your game from the game center leaderboards.
