Apple developing a game console?

anyone remember the Apple Bandai Pippin? i sure don't, but it was real, and apparently sucked, selling an unbelievable low of 42,000 units


a Pippin.


but that was long ago, and Apple is an entirely more successful and different company today. there are murmurs of Apple developing a new console, and with their current focus on hip and stylish young people, i can definitely see it happening.


fake, but looks about right.


Mike Schram of the Tuaw weblog has written an interesting article devoted to the subject:

Nobody cares about Apple anymore. JK. I'm certainly not getting that though. The games are probably going to suck.

Apple is one of the biggest companies out there today, and if they want to try again, then let them. We can't really judge how it would do though. It depends on the tech specs, and the support they could get for it. It's all a matter of wait-and-see right now.

I'm not sure anyone really has high hopes for it, but that could end up being a perfect set-up for us to be floored...or for us to laugh our asses off at it. Who knows.

Come on! Aren't the Comps good enough!

I think that Apple should just stick to making/developing computers.

I doubt this would reach that high on charts. Even as a macintosh geek, still.

You could have said the same for Microsoft, but look where they're at now. You can't dismiss them. They could surprise you.
