Apple launches Apple Arcade game subscription for iOS, Mac, and Apple TV
Apple is unveiling a new Apple Arcade game subscription service today at the company’s “show time” event. Unlike cloud gaming services from competitors like Sony, Microsoft, Google, and Nvidia, Apple’s gaming subscription isn’t designed to stream games to iOS devices. Instead, it’s a subscription game service for titles that can be installed from the App Store.
More than 1 billion people have downloaded games from the App Store, and there are more than 300,000 games available already. Apple is aiming to curate some of these exclusive into its Apple Arcade subscription service. There will be 100 new and exclusive games available on Apple Arcade, which will launch on iOS, Mac, and Apple TV.
