Apple is said to be working on its own console

A bold move if true, but even the biggest companies have to start somewhere if they want to break into the console market.

The console market seems a lot like a closed club. You would think that even the biggest companies in the world would be brave, if not a little silly, to go against the likes of companies like PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo when even the newest of those companies have more than 20 years of experience. Then again, there was a time MicrosoftXbox’s is that newcomer, and it has worked well for itself.

Now there’s a report Apple is considering a foray into the console market. Windows Central’s Jez Corden talked about possible Apple intentions in a recent episode of the Xbox Two podcast. “I’ve heard it for a long time that Apple is exploring making a video game console,” Corden said. “I don’t know if it’s going to be a virtual reality game or something super backwards or something like that, but some of the engineers that Apple recruited from Microsoft were because they wanted to explore creating its own dashboard.”

It should be noted that Corden also emphasized on the podcast that he hasn’t seen any concrete evidence that Apple is creating a console. These reports were things that he had heard from people who would know, but he did not see any documentation to back it up.

Big companies, and especially Apple, work on projects, sometimes big ones like a debut dashboard only to decide that it doesn’t work or it’s not worth it. The fact that Apple recruits personnel from Xbox certainly shows that the company is expanding its games division. A logical, albeit huge, step in that process would be to create a control panel that could compete with systems already on the market.

Apple’s contributions to the gaming industry to date have been relatively small, at least compared to creating its own console. It has Apple Arcade, a subscription service that gives you access to an extensive library of games, some of which are exclusive games. You can actually play Apple Arcade through the Apple TV, so it’s like a console already there, but not really.
