Apple is creating its own video game console

Let’s face it, it’s highly unlikely that video game news this year will be bigger than Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision. Honestly, we might as well quit now – see you next year? Well, actually, it looks like Apple might be making strides to compete, so you’re going to have to put up with me for a little longer.

As reported by Game Rant, Windows Central reporter Jez Corden recently revealed that there is talk of Apple having its own console in the works. Speaking on The Xbox Two podcast, he said the rumor has been circulating for a while now, and while his sources may not be 100%, he believes it’s something that’s currently in the works. development course.

While you’re here, be sure to check out these incredible gaming artworks, all made on different Apple products.

According to Corden, Apple “poached” engineers from Xbox to get the specs sorted, which if true would certainly bode well for the final product. And as for those specs, well, they’re all very up in the air right now. The console might be VR-oriented, or it might not include it at all. Very useful. He also claims that there has been talk of the console having a metaverse implementation, one way or another, which is no doubt a very controversial proposition depending on where you stand on such things. I’ll just say “ugh”.

Obviously, this is all far from confirmed – Corden himself added that Apple is exploring a bunch of different ideas all the time (as you’d expect, really), and so even if something is, Where has been in the works, that doesn’t mean it’s definitely going to happen.

Even if it’s not happening already, there’s a good chance that big news from Microsoft could actually boost something. Announcements like this tend to stir up the competition a bit, with all companies trying to outdo each other, so it might be time for Apple to shake things up one way or another. . It’s hard to imagine them introducing anything absolutely revolutionary, especially since Mac users lag behind everyone else when it comes to playing PC games in any capacity ( help), but we’ll just have to wait and see.
