Apple's new Game Center page lists the iOS devices that will let you get involved in this whole playing games with other people thing that's happening soon. Second-generation iPod Touch owners: you're in luck! iPhone 3G owners: you're not!

Game Center, which will be arriving with the imminent iOS 4.1 update, will allow users to join up with friends to do battle in epic cathedrals and elsewhere—unless, of course, you're still riding around on an iPhone 3G, in which case you're stuck flinging Angry Birds by yourself.

The second-gen iPod Touch has a slightly beefier processor, which could have something to do with it, but at this point Apple's stance is painfully clear: iPhone 3G is old and busted. [Apple via MacRumors]

3G owners just need to upgrade. Their contract has run out so why not? My 3GS contract expires next year and I will buy an iPhone 5 then.
