    Had to happen. Stupid Apple - what were they thinking last year? In my mind, anything inevitably futile should never be embarked upon.

    Hopefully we will see more games! Now that developers don't have to waste time coming up with some horrible way of getting their game to work with the Siri remote!

    Well I could see Apple thinking there is nothing more annoying for casual game customers than to find out they need another piece of equipment after spending $140

    What I feel the solution is. Is for them to have a specific section of the tvOS AppStore for mifi controller only games.

    I think any casual gamer who tries to use a Siri remote to play games would become easily convinced to pick up a dedicated controller...

    I know something more annoying: finding out you will have to use this stupid Siri remote, and therefore you have to wait until this is changed in order to play certain games. Or finding out your existing controllers don't work.

    I just decided not to buy any more games! I have a PS4 for gaming, the ATV is never going to replace that so I can't imagine ever buying a controller for it.

    Apple often starts things very restricted and then relaxes the restrictions over time, so this is very welcome but not entirely unexpected. It also forced developers to get to know the Siri remote, which is fine for some games.
