Activision, one of the world’s largest gaming company, announced in a blog post that it will be bringing three new games – Guitar Hero Live, Skylanders SuperChargers, and Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved – to the 4th generation Apple TV this fall.
Although it has been possible to use Plex on the Apple TV for years now, it has never been simple to get it working on your device: you had to either jailbreak your Apple TV 2 and use an unofficial Plex client, or hack a non-jailbreakable Apple TV 3 using PlexConnect and hope that you won’t lose the hack with the next software update.
It looks that with the new Apple TV, everything will be much easier for Plex fans.
Although it wasn’t officially announced yesterday, it looks that the 2nd and 3rd generation Apple TV won’t be compatible with the new Apple TV operating system – tvOS. Older devices won’t be getting the App Store, Siri and third-part controllers. Basically, they probably won’t get any of the cool features announced yesterday for the “all-new Apple TV”.
As expected, Apple has toady announced the next generation Apple TV with big focus on apps and gaming. It runs the all-new tvOS operating system, based on Apple’s iOS, enabling iOS developers to create new apps and games specifically for Apple TV. Users will be able to download apps directly through the new Apple TV App Store.
