That said who wants to buy a DVD game from the mall Game Stop or Wall Mart just to scratch it up loose it or just gets stolen, you payed upwards fo $60.00 for the game and there's no get back. You do what they want you to do & that's go and spend some more of that cash. Now on Apples end and the way the MacAppStore has taken off why not, pay once and that's it you can't find it download it again it's that easy. Besides XBox has a gaming system that's a little bigger than the Apple TV and you never pop in a game you just plug the power in plug in the hdmi cable to the tv grab the wireless remotes sign in with your account user name and streem your games over wifi. So as to the future about Apple taking over the gaming market not yet just give it some time cause I don't see DVD's CD's or BlueRay staying around too long when every thing you want is already at your finger tips & a download away.
    I understand what u are saying but my concerns is how can u trade a downloaded game in for a new one like bluray cd DVD games once u download the game it has no value unlike console games

    The latest firmware can actually be jailbroken. It is tethered right now with season pass or pwnage tool but should be untethered soon with a updated greenpoison.

    yeah tethered, with season pass. Did that. Then they want you to pay. No thanks. That's what I'm talking about it, waiting ont the pwnage tool. I'm sure it'll be soon too.

    Not gonna happen. Apple can't write graphics drivers and are too proud to ask nVidia or ATi to write them for their products. Even performance on the MacBooks is extremely bad compared to Windows. Unless you want to play 8 bit games on a hi def tv, this is a joke. And from what's being said, no surprise on who the author is given the glaring errors that are being pointed out.

    Would be cool to be able to play your iPhone games with your phone on tv, some games would be hard, or maybe use the phone or iPad as a controller
    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

    I believe Apple did sell about 10k of the Pippins, but I could be very wrong!

    People still want a physical form of media not everyone wants digital and until then BlueRay DVD's and Cd's will be produced.

    Yeah he seems like he knows what he's talkin about.

    Good game the other day by the way (Bulls vs. Jazz), seems you guys beat us so bad that our head coach decided to retire (Jerry Sloan) after 23 seasons.

    No it wouldn't and here's why. Apples gonna have a REALLY hard time tryin to push around a studio like Trey arche or valve like they do the smaller devs that make games for the iPhone. And as another poster already said, for all that apple excels at, writing graphics drivers is their Achilles heal. So in a nut shell, not gonna happen.
