Who is excited? Some of the games look really good.

This explains why Apple silently upgraded the Video Cards in the iMac and iMac Pro to gaming level AMD cards. 

 

I was thinking of upgrading my gaming PC but now I might just get one of the new iMacs. 

 

They can run Bootcamp anyway, and my MacBook Pro plays a lot of games already on Steam/Origin.

It looks fun. If you like games.

Omg my thoughts exactly :bibliahh: Steve Jobs is rolling in his grave (AGAIN!)

 

Giving me Apple's video game console Apple Pippin [one of the biggest FLOP consoles of all time] teas, which they made shortly after they fired Steve. When Steve returned to be Head of Apple again, he was like "Cancel this" [Apple would have been OVER if not for that]

[It sold 42,000 copies, compared to its competition at the time's Playstation's over 100 million copies, yikes :skull:]

 

Who buys an Apple to game, other than play Minesweeper and Solitaire?

You do realise iOS is the #1 gaming video game platform of all time? And has been since 2012. 

 

This is the dumbest comment I think I’ve ever read. 

 

Apple literally hold the top spot in video game hardware.

Just because the FREE app store is the "biggest gaming platflorm" does not mean people are going to pay for monthly for a game streaming service with games their are a console generation behind and no serious developers are going to be willing to make games for. I took your wool sheep, now don't make me turn you into lamb chops little sheapple.

Looks better than Stadia, I suppose.

You’re so uneducated on the topic, it’s sad. 

 

They are targeting the casual gaming market. Not you thinking they’re aiming for AAA gaming. 

 

Oddly enough, “AAA games” aren’t the biggest market in Gaming. 

 

Also, it’s not the biggest gaming platform because it’s “free” it’s only talking about Paid Apps and In-App Purchases. It’s the #1 platform for paid gaming content. 

 

Apple aren’t dumb, they know what gaming content sells. They’re basically replacing Nintendo in the casual game department. Hence why Nintendo went downhill when iOS got big.

Apple Arcade is Apple's new cross-platform subscription gaming service that will provide access to more than 100 iOS games from publishers like Disney, Sega, LEGO, Cartoon Network, Konami, and more when it launches this fall in over 150 countries. Apple hasn't announced pricing, but an Apple Arcade subscription will include full access to all games with no additional in-app purchases necessary to unlock content. 

This sounds like a mess.

It isn’t. Whaling and gaming are not the same thing and it’s time people stop comparing the two. Apple has no experience with gaming at all outside of virtual gambling and the apps they profit from remind me of those browser-based games we loved when dial-up ruled.

 

Apple has sold 42k in video game hardware. The Nintendo Switch is selling more in one week in Japan than Apple has sold lifetime :deadbanana:

That sounds cute but wouldn’t it cut most of their profit? They’d lose the whales and all of the revenue from the Chinese market :skull:

And JJBA is still far more acclaimed and has more longevity than these fads do.

You do realise an iPad/iPhone/iPod touch also classifies as video game hardware :rip:

Maybe if you don’t have a dedicated graphics card. Intergrated graphics are part of the CPU and it gets hot.

No they don't they're phones and tablets not video game consoles. People do not buy those to exclusively play games.

Er. They are hardware that play video games. Apps are the fundamental backbone to Smart Devices.

 

Anyway, the classification isn’t decided by us, as it’s already been decided. The “Game Centre” feature of iOS is what allows it to be classified as an official video game platform.
