Tech and gaming industry analysts seem to think so...
A number of games and tech industry analysts have commented on the growing rumour that Apple is set to make its next strategic move into the games industry, effectively turning Apple TV into a games console.
US games industry analyst Michael Pachter recently said: "Apple TV is the device that they can turn into a console...into an entertainment and Internet hub."
MacFormat Reviews Editor Ian Osbourne said: "Apple TV has underperformed ever since its launch, but reinventing the device as a games console could help it find its niche... The infrastructure is already there, with iTunes geared up for selling applications. As long ago as February 2007, former Xbox Live games guru Greg Canessa listed Apple TV as a conversion option when he joined casual gaming legends PopCap Games, so to be honest, I'm surprised there isn't a gaming edition of the device already."
