If Apple TV proves to be a viable platform for gaming, what does this mean for the gaming industry? Apple TV may have the qualities to compete.
This article is too vague since Apple TV already has a box.
mobile games on 52" sony bravia 3D ..... now were talking, thats why i purchased it candy crush in all its glory ............lets face it if people play mobile games and don't play consoles its not because its better ,it's because they enjoy crappy app games .the only way it hurts it is by devs seeing these apps suck money out of people like a money sucking vampires then deciding to implement it,,, i am talking to you free 2 play and micro's........
If they ever enter the console market I hope they get absolutely destroyed. We don't need their brand of "gaming".
I do not mind if there is more competition in the gaming scene. But What I am afraid of are the Sheep who make the hardware better than it really is. It is the fanboys that ruin the experience. One thing about apple is they have brainwashed to make their followers think certain features were created by apple, or it is OK to buy overpriced hardware.
There is a reason why a lot of developers are moving from consoles to mobile development. A lot of money to be made and it is much easier and cheaper to make.
I have been a console gamer since the latter years of the PlayStation 1. I have played incredible games/series such as God of War, Metal Gear, Battlefield, Elder Scrolls, Bioshock, SOCOM, Tekken, Super Smash Bros., Call of Duty, Jak and Daxter, etc. Crappy, iOS games will never been enough for me at this point. They'll never be able to replace the superior scale, narrative, and depth that console and PC gaming can offer.
It means nothing. Stop trying to make it mean something.
Ohh god, not again! ..It means nothing, Apple TV means nothing. Why do people even take the time out every year to write these silly articles?
If people thought that Sony or MS or Nintendo were proprietary and all about DRM just wait and see what kind of hell Apple would bring to the table. I cannot stand anything Apple. Their whole ecosystem stinks of snobbery and upturned noses. The system is so proprietary and stuffed with DRM it makes me want to puke. Nothing to fear though. Apple TV has sucked since its inception and I don't see it getting any better. Add to that the fact that Apple's upsurge is now on a down swing due to the fact that it is a millennial hipster fad that has about run its course and I very much doubt you will see this change much about the gaming industry. Just imagine a bunch of hipsters designing your games and gaming system. No thanks.
console gaming forever long live Sony Nintendo Microsoft
