on the rumours of apples new gaming subscription service

Curious to see how this rumoured Apple game subscription service will look.

Apple doesn’t “get’ premium gaming at all and historically doesnt have great relations in that area, so I can’t see them attracting big studios with this. Xbox has a library of games and publisher relationships to co opt.

Apple doesn’t. That’s why bar a few take2 experiments and Rockstar, you don’t get those big name games or ports.

I love indie games and wish there were more premium indie experiences on iOS rather than freemium stuff (I pay for premium Iphone games on the regular) but those level of games as a subscription? The well would have to be wide and deep to make me take on yet another sub…
