The gaming credentials of the new Apple TV appear to be somewhat less potent than rumours had led us to believe.
In the run-up to last nightís reveal the new device had been rumoured to represent Appleís long-expected foray into the world of living room gaming. However, it has transpired that apps for the device have for some reason been limited to a maximum size of 200MB.
This seems absurdly restrictive, locking out a number of titles from the platform including the likes of Hearthstone (868MB), Her Story (1.7GB), Infinity Blade III (1.93GB), Donít Starve (288MB), Fallout Shelter (205MB), DoDonPachi Resurrection HD (425MB) and many, many more.
In addition, Apple TV doesnít offer any local storage for apps, meaning all titles must access data from Appleís iCloud. In theory apps larger than 200MB are permitted, but any files over the allocation will need to be accessed remotely each time.
Itís not like the Apple TVís default memory size is particularly restrictive, either, with both the 32GB and 64GB SKUs offering quite a bit in terms of storage space.
Thatís not to say that there havenít been any concessions towards the games market with the new machine, however. As was correctly predicted, a touch and motion controller will be included in the box, and compatibility with Bluetooth game controllers is also included.
