Game Center will not support iPhone 3G and 2nd generation iPod touch?

Earlier today, Apple released iOS 4.1 beta 3 for developers. Included in this release is the removal of Game Center support for the iPhone 3G and 2nd generation iPod touch.

Game Center is one of the big features that we have been waiting for since the announcement of iOS 4 and now it appears that Apple is stripping it from older generation iOS devices. Why? Is Game Center so complicated that it needs the improved hardware of the newer devices? Keep in mind, this is only a beta release, so it is possible for Game Center support to return in the final build.

However, if Game Center support does not return to iPhone 3G and the 2nd generation iPod touch and you own one of these devices, does it entice you to upgrade?
