Apple Plans Gaming Subscription Service

Alex Heath with the scoop:

The service would function like Netflix for games, allowing users who pay a subscription fee to access a bundled list of titles. Apple began privately discussing a subscription service with game developers in the second half of 2018, said the people, all of whom requested anonymity to discuss unannounced plans.

Two thoughts:

1) Services. Services. Services. Services.

2) Finally. (But we'll see how seriously they actually take this. If they do a lower-priced Apple TV "dongle" and/or include a game controller, then we'll know they're taking it pretty seriously.)

Bonus thought: if something like this does take off, does Apple's 30% cut stand the test of time... I'm skeptical...
