Is Apple Planning A Game Streaming Service?Apple may be moving into the television gaming business. An Internet tech-head at Engadget noticed some code in the beta of Apple's iOS 4.3 3 firmware seem to suggest Apple plans to move into bringing games to your television.

According to Engadget:

"Several references have been found pertaining to 'ATVGames' and 'ATVThunder' that point to a controller of some sort, leaderboards (think Game Center), a way to schedule games (multiplayer?), and a store front (think App Store, iTunes)."

The code suggests to Engadget that Apple TV may be posisitioned as a game-streaming service, not dissimiallr to OnLive.

It's not the most solid evidence of all, but when you combine the facts with a little speculation and some logic, Apple getting into gaming seems pretty plausible. After all, if they combined the current Apple app store with Apple TV and a controller, there would be an instant library of thousands and thousands of games available on launch day to the Apple faithful, and who wouldn't want to make that much money?

What do you think? Is an Apple TV powered gaming streaming service in the works?
