OpenFeint Playtime: Cross Platform, Real-time Multiplayer

In the wake of Apple’s Game Center announcement for iOS 4.1, OpenFeint has announced a new feature called OpenFeint Playtime, a feature that allows cross-platform, real-time multiplayer between iOS and Android devices.  It’ll also have real-time voice chat along with up to 16-players in a single lobby.

While OpenFeint playtime is still in private beta (which you can apply for now), it hopefully shouldn’t take too long.  With Game Center and Playtime all coming soon, it’s safe to think that online multiplayer will finally be able to be implemented in most games.

We’ll be following OpenFeint Playtime’s development, and hopefully we get our hands on it soon.

If you’re a developer and want to check it out, be sure to find it on their website here.

About Daniel

I have been an iPhone game addict ever since the NES emulator came out on the 1.1.4 iPhone 2G. After 2.0 and the App Store came out, my iPhone homescreen has never been the same. Other than writing reviews for App Store games, I play soccer/football, American football, volleyball, and golf. I love going to the beach and fishing on the pier. Some games not available on iPhone/iPod Touch that I truly love are the Call of Duty series, Guitar Hero III, Madden NFL 09, and PGR: Gotham Racing.
