Apple is reportedly spending massive amounts of money on games for its Arcade service, including short-term exclusives.
Good, competition is better
They certainly have the money to do so. Though a traditional gaming console would’ve been interesting, for Apple it makes sense to get revenue from their existing users. I have an iPhone myself, and I’m a gamer, but they have yet to intice me to actually want to download or buy any games from the App Store. All my gaming needs are covered by consoles. I guess they are after my dollars and with this service they think they can actually get it. Unless they offer something truly extraordinary I doubt they will be able to convince me, but we will find out soon enough.
