Apple Is Working On A Game Streaming Service – Report

Another big name may be about to join the streaming fray.

Game streaming seems to be the next big thing that just about every big player in the industry seems to be pushing for. Google, Microsoft, Ubisoft, EA, Square Enix, Amazon, and Sony are just among the very many big name companies we have heard of experimenting with game streaming, and now it looks like an even bigger name may be about to join the fray. The biggest name of all, in fact.

According to a report from Cheddar, Apple is looking into starting a “Netflix for games” (sound familiar?), and will be acting more proactively with distributing games on this service than ever before, including acting as a publisher for the games on it.

Anything beyond that is unclear right now—what games would these be? App Store games? Would they be bigger AAA games, or indie titles? What devices would the service be available on? What would pricing be like? The report says these details are currently not finalized, and that Apple may well abandon the concept entirely.

But one this is for sure—between this report, and the one that the iPod Touch may be getting rebranded as a gaming handheld, it sounds like Apple may at last be beginning to take video games more seriously.
