    Should of done this from the start. Apps and Games on the Apple TV is a must.

    Not sure how you will play games unless you use iPhone or purchase a game controller which would have to ship with future AppleTV’s to be viable in the long run.

    FYI that picture is of the old discontinued AppleTV v1 which wont be getting any of these features, the current AppleTV v2 is a small black box.

    That’d be great. I was wondering why gaming wasn’t available at launch.
