Apple Arcade Test Underway, Details Leaked

Apple Arcade

Apple has begun wider testing of its subscription game service and some testers area leaking screenshots and video of the games and how the service works. Word is that the service will start at $4.99 per month. It should include about 100 games and work on Macs, iPhones, iPads and Apple TVs, with iCloud syncing game progress across all platforms. You should even be able to download games for offline play and use a variety of controllers.

Apple Arcade seems to be a unique service with exclusive casual games and a price point that should get you a year subscription for less than the price of of some single hard-core games. We could see it launch with new iPhones in September, or perhaps it will arrive later in the fall in time to make new Apple TVs an attractive holiday purchase.
