Apple has confirmed via a graphic on its Game Center web page that the iPhone 3G will not support the upcoming social gaming network. The graphic indicates that Game Center will be supported on the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and second-, third-, and fourth-generation iPod touch. Mac Rumors notes that in its iOS 4.1 betas, Apple had initially offered support for Game Center on all iOS 4-capable devices, but removed support for the iPhone 3G and second-generation iPod touch in a revision last month, only to add back support for the touch 2G. In addition, it appears that Apple has also reset the service ahead of its public launch, deleting the accounts of developers who had been using Game Center during the iOS 4.1 beta period.
