The lights are on
Apple could be creating its own game console for this year if a recent rumor is correct.
Website cultofmac.com says that its sources say that Apple plans to release its own TV set in 2012 with "an iTunes-integrated touchscreen remote and Siri-like voice command technology." This TV will also come with a video-game console whose interface relies on touch and Kinect-like motion controls.
Whether this has anything to do with Apple CEO Tim Cook's recent visit to Valve, Steam on this Apple console, or if it's related to Valve's own console dreams is unknown.

Eh, if I wouldn't mind buying it.
i wouldnt mind a new contender to throw into the fold.lets see where this goes.
I'm in favor of this. I honestly don't see anything wrong with the biggest electronic company in the world creating a video game console.
given how the launch of the iphone 4s went with its pathetic battery and now with ios 5.1 killing its wifi capabilities, this isnt on my purchase list. the only thing i support apple in now is just iTunes, since their library is so large.
If anything, I don't want Valve to team up with Apple. Those two are on different ends of the spectrum in regards to nice and evil. One likes to make over-priced items with shinyness on top of it, and the other likes to give very, very good deals to consumers.
I would never buy this. SONY NINTENDO AND MICROSOFT FOR LIFE
I love Apple all of their products are amazing but I'm going to need more info on this. I'm not paying a whole lot of money for a console. Btw people need to quit hating on Apple or crying about everything Apple does...ridiculous.
it lost me at touch and kinect-like motion controls.
Apple is bad for the video game industry as a whole.
So...to play I would walk up to the TV and put my fingers all the TV screen?
It all connects...
We don't need another console. Three is plenty.
I've always had the feeling that Apple would try and make their own console. If they do release a console, then I'll happily fork over my money.
The PS3 only does everything.
The Applebox only does flailing.
Regardless, this doesn't sound very true. Apple isn't one to try to carve a niche in an already established market. It takes other people's unmarketable ideas for products no one needs, then markets the unmarketable to convince people they need the unneeded.
Sorry Apple, there isn't any room for you :P
