    Apple is about to announce the new Apple TV at an event that's taking place on Wednesday, September 9th in San Francisco, California. It's reported that their conference will have some focus on gaming and how they can break into the market.

    Apple has done pretty much everything but focus on gaming over the years, so if any of this is true, you have to wonder how this could affect the console gaming market. The Apple TV will probably not attract the hardcore gamers who play primarily on consoles, or PC, and other than existing iOS games, there might not be any encouragement for developers to work with the hardware.

    If anything, this is an interesting move from Apple. If they are trying to draw players away from consoles, how will they convince them to switch? Even if the hardware is a large improvement over previous models, it's likely to fall well behind current console hardware. Still, we'll have to wait and see what happens.

    What do you think about this rumor? Would you like to see Apple break into the gaming market? Or should they just stick to what they're better known for? Let us know in the comments below.

    I've always wondered why they haven't.

    Wait, so are they making another console, or something completely different?

      No one knows. This is a rumor.

    Lol I'm trying to imagine the price tag on this, probably will be a more expensive alternative to something we can already do. Like usual.

    This will just be a way to play iOS games on a TV. It won't be anything special. Probably AirPlay games and what not. It won't impact the normal market in any way.

      Seems very likely that's their path they're going towards.

    lol

    I highly doubt this will change anything, probably going to be targeted to more of a family setting, I doubt I'll play anything worthwhile on this.

    I imagine the main reason Apple is doing this is so they can compete with Android. Android has already been taking some big steps towards big-screen gaming, so it will be interesting to see how Apple responds to that.

      For sure. As big as Apple is, I don't think they can take on the console gaming giants. They are a bit late to that game.

      They might bring out something big, but they won't be able to compete with the big dogs. We'll have to see what kind of games they'll be making.

      They won't be making any games, it will be the developers making them.
