I wonder if Apple will develop a revolutionary Joystick and compete with Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft in the Game Console Department.

I am sorry about quoting myself...
I was using my iPod Touch 4G, and suddenly I realized... What better joystick that the iPod Touch? It has an Accelerometer, a gyroscope, Wifi, blueetooth... and a nice screen where you can draw any number of buttons (to simulate a Pad).

I wonder if I can use an Apple TV First Person Shooter, with the iPod Touch simulating the gun, and pressing the volume buttons to shoot.

Just to clarify, it can decode 1080p (up to a certain bitrate), but all playback is downconverted to 720p. On the plus side, it has been tested to play back 720p60fps material without issue.

That's a good point. For me it was mainly a issue having to re-encode everything. heh.
