Doesn't matter how many users 'Game Center' has. I have it on my phone, but when do I actually look in there? Never.

I don't have an Xbox so i'm not trying to defend MS, but Mobile Phones are NOT gaming machines. Get some REAL games. Some REAL exclusive games, and not just games that were on the PS1. My iPhone is a PHONE first, and everything else second. My PS3, PSP, 3DS, and soon PSV/NGP are gaming devices with real games.

In just nine months we have 50 million Game Center users," he said. "To put that into perspective Xbox Live has been around for about eight years and they have around 30 million users."

As we reported in our live blog of the event, Forstall also revealed that Achievement points would be coming to Game Center, as the platform becomes more social. You'll be able to see what friends - and what friends of friends - are playing, and how well they're doing on your favourite games.

Yes because after a long day of work I just want to sit on the couch and pull out an iPhone and play some angry birds /s

IPhone is more for during work. In this case even Angry Birds can be fun :D

No, but you'd rather sit on the couch and wave your arms around, right?

While phones really haven't been much of a serious gaming machine there are some clear signs that is starting to change. The iPad games (plus other tablets) will only make that gap a closer one. Especialy with some of these HDipad ports.

Currently I've seen only a small handfull of games I truly want to play on a tablet. But I expect that to change in the next 12 months.

It seem like Microsoft is looking to the past (Nintendo wii) rather than making quality innovative products for the next generation.
