    With the announcements made at WWDC and the framework changes made for graphics I'm wondering if Apple plans on developing an Apple TV gaming console to rival PS4 / Xbox One. The graphics in WWDC were quite amazing and could easily be done with a standalone device. What do you think? I'm sure the price point would be higher, maybe 2 version of the ATV 4, entertainment and gaming editions?

    I hope so. There are some iOS games I'd love to take to the big screen. Extra integration with My Mac and iPad would rock too.

    It'd be great to see it even with a $20 to $30 bump in price it would still be a pretty good device

    I don't think Apple will make an Apple TV to compete with the PS4 and Xbox One, but I do think it will be made to either compete with products such as Ouya, or to forge an entirely new category of gaming device.

    Nah, Apple has no cred in gaming and doesn't have the range like Microsoft to come out with a Xbox caliber console out of the blue.



    Even if Apple were to come out with an app-based mostly indie-developer dominated machine, it would still be hamstrung by the lack of quality that people want in the PS4, Xbox One or, by now enduring champion, the PC. Indie games aren't going to sell systems, big name titles are.

    With the PS Vita TV where you can play Vita games and also stream a growing number of selected PS3 games coming at the same price as the Apple TV, you can get your fix. As for Apple - It doesn't look like it.

    no interests in it and I wouldn't pay more for the function as i wouldn't use it. I game on my 360. I don't even want a ps4 or a xbox one. I barely use my 360 anymore for gaming. It's a netflix and youtube client mostly. The the best chance appletv has with me is beat roku in speed and codec support and start matching them with apps. I'm not holding my breath though. right now my ancient wdtv plays many more file types than other players and my 360 works just fine doing netflix and youtube. So I can get by for now on what i have.
