Apple making a console?
 

 

Here's a crazy rumour to start off the week! It was mentioned by Windows Central reporter Jez Corden on the latest episode of The Xbox Two podcast that Apple might be "poaching" Xbox engineers to make its own games console.
Jez says he's been hearing this for a while, although he admits the sourcing on the information isn't the best (he has no concrete details or proof) and even if it is true, he doesn't know if Apple is still pursuing the idea:
"I've been hearing for a while that Apple has been poaching Xbox engineers to make its own console. I've heard that for ages, that Apple was exploring making a video game console. And I don't know if it's going to be a VR play, or a metaverse thing, or something like that..."
"I don't know if that'll come to fruition, I don't know if they've cancelled it already, because Apple explore a ton of stuff... I don't have amazing sourcing on this, I have no documents, I have no photographs, but it's just something I heard."
He also speculated during the discussion about "which company would really want to compete with [console makers and potentially Apple] at that level" right now, suggesting "the real answer" is Chinese tech giant Tencent.

Apple has been supposedly making a console and a car for over a decade now, eh

Apple Arcade on the Apple TV seems far enough into gaming for them, they make billions off it doing nothing...Breaking into the console game now seems way too late

To credit, people said this same thing about Microsoft when they showed up for the first time in the early 2000s.

One thing I always wondered if they did this is if they can attract non gamers . That Apple brand is so strong, pretty much anything they get behind has a lot of consumer interest at least at the beginning and a lot of their products have had staying power like a MF. That brand goes such a long way, Im convinced it can sell anything you can slap it on.

I think a console and a VR headset are in their future for sure. Video games seem to be getting a ton of attention from big tech lately. We probably gonna see a lot of these fools aggressively throw their hats into the ring

Apple will probably buy Sony. That would strengthen their gaming and movie business.

If Sony hadn't spent the last few decades buying up exclusive rights to games from Tekken, final fantasy, GTA, metal gear, etc. back in the day To deathloop, Final Fantasy, and Spiderman etc. today....
They might of had enough cash to buy Activision themselves

Apple buying Sony would also give them some cool VR Tech for the metaverse so they can better compete with Facebook and them

Apple has the cash to do it. The Sony movie and TV content would definitely give Apple+ a nice boost. The games would be icing on the cake.

Apple PlayStation 6
