    Anybody else think Apple may go into the gaming industry soon? They are already a serious player when you think about the amount of iOS games there are and many from big names like EA, you can even get GTA 3 on the iPad.

    Make the next Apple TV have some of the 'Metal' tech in it or maybe even use the iPhone/iPad to do the processing. Almost every Apple device seems to have bluetooth.

    So bluetooth :apple: Controller + iTunes for game purchase, and iPhone/iPad doing the raw processing using Metal gaming thing they showed off connected to an :apple: TV .

    Tim Cook did say they are working on things that have not even been rumoured about yet.......

    They're going to have controllers for the iPad and iPhone, but streaming a game is totally different to streaming a movie. That's why people use ethernet cables on the Xbox.

    If AirPlaying had worked as intended, there would be more games supporting it.

    Strictly my opinion though.

    Not a chance. Apple and gaming, no matter how hard they seem to try, never seem to work out very well.

    I don't think Apple is targeting this direction.

    Yes. I could easily see Apple tapping back into the gaming market. As far as I'm concerned, the Mac Pro has all the glorious specs of a great gaming rig. The new 5K display will enable gamers everywhere to acquire headshots right down to the tiniest pixel. Dat retina, tho. :cool: Imagine fragging on that thing? Couple it with the new VR Oculus.

    I long for the day that Apple announces a move towards the gaming market, so I can say: shut up and take my money. :D

    I like this Apple TV idea...we could AirPlay matches from our Mac Pros to our TVs without Twitch. *longs for the day*

    I really wish they would because I hate boot camping to play COD, BF and any other game worth a ****

    I have tried playing the currently available COD games on my iMac and they run very bad IMO. The last time I tried playing MW3 my footprint sounds were lagging way behind and the game runs nowhere close to the way it does under Win 7 in Bootcamp.

    I just got sick of having that Windows OS on my iMac and got tired of gaming in general.
