    Uninstall GAme Center in 10.8.2
    Is it advised to uninstall this system app with no problems; with a 3rd party app like CleanMyMac, which also clean prefs ? Im not into gaming.

    I don't recommend using CleanMyMac for anything. It's FUDware and doesn't do at least some of what it claims to do. I've seen a couple instances where it actually ruined some installations of OS X.

    As for Game Center... I don't know that it can be removed safely, nor can I find any information about doing it via a web search. I can only recommend leaving it alone for the time being.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    Thanks for the FUDware info, already uninstalled it after doing a quick research on the subject. Ive only got 2 years of mac. Installed Apptrapper instead for uninstalls.

    It's usually a bad idea to delete applications that came bundled with the OS since it is integrated and getting again isn't trivial. If you don't play games, just ignore the Game Center and that should be fine. Unless used, it shouldn't be taking any resources and not much space I imagine..

    I recommend using AppCleaner instead of AppTrap. It will work exactly like AppTrap does if you enable that option in its preferences, but I've also found it to be faster and a bit more thorough that AppTrap is. It's also free.

    Thanks guys for the replies. I also guess common sense tells me to leave system apps alone, despite never using them.
