Rumours that Apple are considering are games console have been around for a while now, and now a new one has cropped up. This one relates to the tech company’s Apple TV line, with the new model allegedly having the ability to support games.
This rumour comes from the site 9to5mac.com who claim that sources say they new device will be announced and released quite early this year, and may support motion controls. All of this is as yet unverified, but Apple adding games to the Apple TV could be a good move for the company. After all they’re incredibly popular on other iOS devices.
I doubt we’d see major games like Assassin’s Creed or Call Of Duty offered through Apple TV anytime soon, but the company could go down the route similar to various Android consoles like the Ouya, but allowing the streaming of certaingames too like OnLive did. With the brand power already established then Apple are likely to have any more success than the others mentioned in this article.
Of course we’ll have to wait for any concrete evidence from Apple before we can consider this as true.
