Apple’s Game centre is a way for friends to compare scores, track achievements. and challenge each other to their favourite games online.Now Amazon is introducing GameCircle, its own take on a social gaming network.

Kindle Fire users will have access to similar functionality seen in Game centre, with high score leaderboards and multiplayer functionality.

This could be a potential draw for new users as we expect a new Kindle Fire to be announced very soon.
