Kind of expected IMO but still some may find this new. The A11 especially seems a monster in the palm of your hand.

They said the 360/PS3. They were released like 12 years ago.

Did they get rid of the requirement that all games have to be playable with the Siri remote? Get rid of that requirement and release an official controller along with a dock/controller case and I think that Apple could have a reasonable chance of entering the console industry on the side.

The AR demo at the iPhone (and iPad Pro a couple months ago) reveals looked really impressive. Mobile power is coming a long way. But tbh, the PS3 and 360 are over 10 years old so I'm no surprised either.

To be fair, iPhone 7/AppleTV/iPad Pro trounces the PS4 and XBO in CPU performance (but even the 8/X falls short in GPU).

What? The OS affects nothing and the Metal API is similar to Vulkan API so hardly any overhead and 'bloat'

I'm honestly surprised they did change that, but let's be honest, what effect has that actually had when it comes to devs developing for it? Apple TV is not gonna be anything more than a niche device as far as gaming is concerned.

I'm sure there will continue to be the occasional good game for the platform but until they get serious and make an official controller it still won't mean anything.

The Apple TV's App Store, gaming and otherwise, has been a tremendous letdown so far.

An OS matters for plenty of reasons, and the bloat I was referring to is in that not the API.

Of the the the big 4 OS being used by consoles or by pc gamers apple is the worst and yes the bloat does matter if it eat's the performance of otherwise good hardware. Has the weakest cpu scheduler as well.

That's a far cry from nothing.

Fake News.

The thermal limits and real world performance of this can't match any of those game consoles. The chip just isn't made for gaming.
