Now Loading…Apple TV Assaulting Consoles?! Do You Even Want It To?
Welcome to a weekend edition of Now Loading. If you’ve been keeping tabs on the tech world, you’ve no doubt, have heard or seen the Apple TV being shown on stage at the company’s big event earlier this week.
While famous iAnything maker Apple is known to push games on its App Store, that’s as far as the company went when it comes to gaming (unless you count the horrendous failure, Pippin, which was released way back in 1995). For some reason, though, before Apple’s big event, a bunch of tech sites reported that the Apple TV will be a direct assault on the console home front — yes, Apple was finally going to target the lucrative home console business. Headlines like “Why the new Apple TV will kill your Xbox or Playstation” made the rounds, even.
With this in mind, the PlayStation LifeStyle crew weighed in on not only what they think of the Apple TV as a gaming device, but the thought of Apple entering the console video game market to wage war against Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo as well.
What do you think of the Apple TV? Would you even want Apple to enter the console space? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Now Loading is a recurring staff-driven feature where PlayStation LifeStyle discusses anything video game-related under the sun (yes, even non-Sony platforms).
