Apple Arcade taking influence from Google announcing something that's not ready and having no additional information on what type of sub or price.

Of course they won't announce sub prices. They are playing the waiting game with Google so they don't get under cut

So is there a game streaming component like Stadia, etc? Sounded like just a subscription service for downloding apps...?

So it's basically mobile Gamepass.
Makes sense for Apple and some of the games look fun.

Showing a bunch of indie looking games and then being all "this is like, completely new and you can't get these sorts of games anywhere else" is the most Apple thing ever though

What game was that? Looked like a blatant rip off of Zelda...
Probably that Oceanhorn (or something like that) franchise which have been Zelda ripoffs from day 1

no streaming its basically Apple's version of GamePass.

In gamepass you get only base game iirc so Apple version is better.

If I had to live in future where game ownership is eradicated then Apple would be least bad candidate so far.

Apple Arcade games cannot collect any data about the user without consent.
All Apple Arcade games will be all-you-can-play. All features, content, and updates will be included at no extra charge. No extra in-app purchases necessary.
Every game will be playable offline. No internet connection required.
Apple Arcade supports iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV.

Agreed but tbh i rather just buy the games in a sale.
Why you might say?
Not sure every ios update seems to fuck up my paid apps.
Monsterhunter 2 was broken for a good year,

None of this is anything. Are they doing this to stretch toward the end time because they have no more content???

Women and Men in workplace diversity nonsense to pad out the show because there's no more content.

Also do they have like set-up guys in the audience to laugh since it seems like it's the same tones from the same side of the crowd.

Fault line in our society?

You combine this with controlled TV and News Propaganda, Apple will have a new generation of crazies brainwashed.

Hey so this may seem like an odd question but I have no idea who any of the people they are "flashing" on the set are. Am outside the brainwash distraction zone to much?

Apple if you don't have content end the show.

Seriously, Apple, you've been doing this for near 20 minutes now. You already got your political shot in as well.

She is using basic notes on a piano, shut up and leave the stage. You make people that can actually play angry.
