Haha Apple TV + HDTV + game = HORRIBLE SCALING AND GRAPHICS!

Consoles are what they are because they're designed specifically to tackle these problems, you get great gameplay coupled with HD graphics and at a pretty respectable price.

[citation][nom]pocketdrummer[/nom]Like we really need a crappy tv box for gaming... we already have consoles, and look what they did to the PC gaming market -_-[/citation]
when are people going to realize that games on PCs are so much easier to play, and have much better graphics

Doesn't make me any more interested in Apple TV. (I already have a HTPC next to my TV.)
I'm much more interested in Apple's idea for a game controller.

Most people don't have a PC hooked up to their TV.

"we already have consoles, and look what they did to the PC gaming market" - exactly, nobody saw that coming, the pc people thought those consoles will never replace gaming on a "proper" computer, but ooops,, it did....

just a thought, but what if crappy little $1 games do actually start overtaking the tripple A blockbuster titles for revenue.... it seems unlikely, but that's what makes the result spectacular... if everything that happened was obvious wouldn't life be a bit boring??

the trick is to back the company that comes up with the unlikely and makes it work.... and everyone must admit apple are masters at that over the last decade or so... but they did however have some pretty BIG mistakes prior to that....!

another company who seem good at creating new unlikely solutions are google.... both apple and google are doing very well at the expense of mainly microsoft at the moment...

Looking at AppleTV sales, I can guarantee you that more pcs are connected to tv's than AppleTV's.

You would be wrong....there are many other cheap set-top box makers that do the same as Apple Tv. Roku, Popcorn, AC Ryan, WD, Seagate, Dlink, Netgear. All much cheaper than you PC!

Er, since when are Roku, Popcorn Hour, etc stb's AppleTV's? That's what we're talking about here. Learn to read.

And have awesome mods. I love the competitive L4D mods (i.e. tank every round, pills only, no t2 - makes the game hella fun). And the Oblivion mods... so much awesome.

I did read ......and since we are talking about staying on subject; why would post this asinine train of thought?

"Looking at AppleTV sales, I can guarantee you that more pcs are connected to tv's than AppleTV's."

I was merely pointing out to you that you are wrong to think that more PC's are connected to tv's than what was listed by me in my previous post. All of which fall into the category as an Apple TV. Simpleton!

All of those fall into the internet capable stb category. AppleTV is merely a part of that category. And since we are talking about a possiblilty of gaming on AppleTV's and not Roku boxes or other stb's, a realm that pc's excel in, I guess that you're the simpleton as well as an idiot for trying to defend your mis-understanding of the discussion.

The argument that more PC's are connected to TV's is plain and simply wrong! Had you said more people will connect PC's to their tv's to play games i would have agreed with you. But since you didn't, the disagreement with your inane post in it current, literal form is very much valid!
So in the future post a more cogent thought and maybe you would save face and appear intelligent.

You move your HDTV to your PC. HDTV's are not heavy ya know. and 2 you did not specify size of the HDTV. 3 Monitors can be the same as HDTV so this is moot. and 4 Ever heard of MicroATX?? Thats right PC's are no longer bulky could be the size of a cube and still pack a punch like a full desktop tower. Just shows how much people know about technology lol.
