There are a couple of good things about the Apple TV including great, clean interface, touch screen remote control, powerful hardware but gaming is definitely not one among them.
In terms of design, Apple TV 2015 looks exactly like the older version except for bigger box but the best thing about the product is the new remote control which has a touchscreen integrated into it. There are just five buttons on the remote with a spacious panel on top and it not only responds to your touch, but to voices as well. There are new ways to customize your home screen, screensavers, apps and better Siri support.
Games and More
The biggest claim that Apple TV 2015 made before its official launch is that it could finally beat consoles like Xbox One and Playstation 4 to become a game console on its own. With a motion sensing remote, we did assume it might at least be as good as Nintendo Wii but it hardly lives up to the hype.
The failure is because of the fact that game titles are still the ones you will find on iOS and they hardly warrant a reason to ditch console or PC gaming altogether. A Nimbus steel series controller can be purchased to feel yourself immersed in the action. Some popular titles include Manticore Rising, Rayman Adventures, and Transistor.
While the concept is good, it can hardly match Wii in terms of exclusive games that Nintendo produces and the actual gameplay experience it offers. However, the collection of apps on the Apple TV is good with additions like Airbnb, HBO Go among many other applications that are already available on the iPhone, iPad devices.
If you already own an iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2 among other Apple devices, an Apple TV 2015 should be the best choice to go with it as it works seamlessly for your entertainment. But, don’t trust it for gaming because it’s far from being perfect in this scenario.
The 32 GB version costs $149 while the 64 GB variant will set you back by $199. For more tech specs and those amazing features about Siri Apple want you to know, head to their official page here.
