Apple showcasing somebody else's software. :confused:

Not just somebody, but Microsoft!! Microsoft owns Minecraft!
ALSO, Apple is pretty late to the party. Most people already have it on one of 6 other platforms. Not buying again

I am almost embarrassed pointing out your absolute failure but it's fun, this is a thread about Minecraft coming to APPLE TV, so even someone with a first grade reading comprehension would understand the discussion was about Minecraft comming APPLE TV. Just stay down, it's embarrassing to watch you fail and struggle, but we both know you'l respond and dig an even deeper hole.

I'm almost embarrassed you have an account dedicated to trolling and you're absolutely terrible at it. Perhaps the worst ever. You keep needing to explain yourself yet your posts don't say what you're explaining. You literally said "Apple". Apple has had it since day 1 across all of their available platforms... for 5 years now. I've already told you this and explained the differences in detail. You attempted to spin it to make yourself not appear to be a halfwit, and failed again - as the only "TV" device they have capable of playing video games hasn't been out for 4 years. The only one having difficulty comprehending anything here - is you - and you wrote your original, incorrect, statement.

So take the advice I already provided. Quit while you're behind. If you need to explain and have a second, third, fourth and fifth try at your troll attempt, you failed at trolling miserably.

[doublepost=1477589001][/doublepost]This event is so painful to watch. It seems like every presenter (including Tim Cook) is artificially trying to be excited for features which should have been implemented years ago. His favorite words? "Incredible", "Amazing". Wonder if there's anyone keeping track of the number of times those words are spoken.

They are always showcasing someone else's gaming software, they don't make their own.
