Apple has informed their paid iOS developers that they now have the ability to create the necessary metadata for Game Center leaderboards and achievements. This allows game developers, wishing to take part in Game Center, to create player rewards/achievements and leaderboards for all Game Center users to see.

This seems like a big step in the process of setting up Apple’s interactive gaming network, and we feel that Game Center’s public release is imminent. It’s probably safe to say that we’ll get a bunch of Game Center details at Apple’s upcoming September keynote. Do we want iPad Game Center compatibility? Heck yeah!

Game Center metadata screenshots are after the break!
