Apple Arcade: a quick look at the games

The new Apple Arcade service brings you over a hundred exclusive, super high quality mobile games without in-app purchases for the sweet price of just $5, and you can share the service with your whole family.

But what games are included?

Apple demoed three of the games in length at its September event, but if you want to learn even more, the company has now posted an extremely informative video showing some more games in just a 100 seconds. Take a look at it above, it's fast-paced and it will definitely get you excited for this quite affordable new service, especially if you are into mobile gaming.

Apple Arcade will arrive in 150 countries around the world on September 19th with iOS 13, on September 30 on iPadOS and tvOS 13, and in October on macOS Catalina. You will have a free one-month trial to test it out.

This is so cool. Gonna subscribe this for the whole family. Also, this would be good against IAP games.

I'm not interested about gaming, but have to say in this video the games look very good and fun to play and i can see the main audience propably going to enjoy them a lot. I have a feeling that this gaming platform going to be very popular among younger audience.

Too bad it's only available for Apple mobile devices.

Right?! If apple wants to generate more services revenue or build a bigger user base they should open it up for everyone.

It’s part of the apple App Store so everyone can’t have it. How are they supposed to give you games over android play store?

They could have an app on the play store. Remember Apple Music? Duh.

Gee, maybe I should just drop four figures on an iPhone just so I can play games...? That's what they want.

This is the way apple has always been with all their products. They want to control every aspect of how their products work and what is works on. If its not Apple its not good enough and you are not allowed in. They are a the totalitarian regime of the tech world.

Theres a couple that look good but for the most part, they are very basic. Can save on the subscription by just buying the good ones outright.

That's the thing, you can't buy them outright, at least not for the first 6 months from what I understand. Those games are exclusive to arcade and consoles. You can't get them on android either, at least for 6 months or so.

I've been on records about how much I hate IAP. To not be a hypocrite and to support non-IAP games, I will commit to one year of Apple Arcade, I will reevaluate that decision a year later.

At 1:31-1:33, is that Rocket League or a similar game to Rocket League?
