Apple launches gaming-focused Apple TV

Apple has launched a gaming-focused Apple TV in an attempt to expand its reach into gaming.

Apple TV took center stage at one of the Apple’s largest product launches of recent years, alongside new iPhones, iPads and Apple Watch designs, held at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.

“This is the future of television, coming now” Apple CEO Tim Cook said. “We need a new foundation for TV, one that’s built on powerful hardware.”

Most significantly, tvOS will allow developers to create apps for the Apple TV, opening up major opportunities for gaming. Netflix, HBO, and Hulu apps will all be available as well. “We believe the future of television is apps,” Cook said.

Some of the games to be released are Guitar Hero, Beat Sports, an exclusive Multiplayer version of the hit mobile game Crossy Road only available to Apple Tv and popular game Raymond Run. These are only some which showcase the new focus apple have on this new product.
