Yeah I reckon this article nails it on the head. For some reason mainstream will suddenly "get" a Microconsole if it is an Apple product.

that is only if apple can somehow convince cable suppliers to let go of the noose. i don't see it happening anytime soon.

Apple needs to fix the curation problem of the app store.

Exactly what I was thinking. You will have the usual people who didn't even knew this type of tech existed until apple did it.

I think, if anything, Apple would be best taking a shot at Nintendo and filling the gap the Wii U Never filled. Big job, I know. But with the rumours of motion controls being bandied about and Apple's penchant for sappy video montages - you can imagine how the presentation would go down should they decide to go take this road.

If anyone has the ability to succeed in this space, it's going to be Apple. I think the genuine cult following that the company has for its gadgets surpasses anything like those other companies. Will love to see where this all ends up in a year's time.

Or looking at history it won't succeed because this isn't what gamers want. We want REAL consoles with real games. I don't need another device I can play Candy Crush on, that so called game is boring and claims to be original when it just stole everything from other games. Sorry apple, you clearly don't understand the gaming industry as much as the fools who made Ouya did.

Ubergamers aren't the primary target market. They don't need to attract the main console gamers..

Real gamers don't want this stuff for gaming. Mobile games pass time I can't give it the same respect as a console or PC game. Just my opinion of course

People will only lap this up from media hype and the huge advertising they do. My phone already does the microcontroller crap and ps360x already is cheap enough to have a quality system. Alk this would be is another example of mindless consumers.

Spot on. If the Apple TV is indeed going to be $150, then it's probably dead in the water. For $200 you can get a PS3 which can also double as a dvd/bluray player. What advantage does a suped up Apple TV provide? It'd be an inferior gaming machine and a more expensive media streaming device.
