Game Center coming to Mountain Lion

Apple is bringing its mobile gaming network to OS X.

James Martin/CNET

iOS gamers are starting to feel the love after an announcement today at Apple's WWDC press conference. Game Center will be coming to Mountain Lion when it launches this July. If a title is available on both platforms (iOS and OS X), two friends will be able to play each other -- but that's not it. Game Center on Mountain Lion will also allow for Mac-to-Mac support in addition to support with AirPlay.

Of course we still don't know how OS X games will work with Game Center, though it's reasonable to assume that most OS X games moving forward will be compatible with all the features of Game Center, including online matchmaking, high-score postings, achievements, and more. We'll have more info on the Game Center implementation into Mountain Lion as it develops.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
