Apple Expands Apple TV Gift Card Offer to More Countries

Apple has expanded a previously U.S. exclusive Apple TV gift card offer to more countries worldwide, offering customers a gift card alongside the purchase of an ‌Apple TV‌ 4K or ‌Apple TV‌ HD.

The original offer was launched for U.S. customers last month, giving buyers a $50 gift card with the purchase of an ‌Apple TV‌.

Following the Apple Store going down in several countries, Apple has expanded the offer to more locations, including the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Germany, and others. The promotion will run until August 15, including in the U.S.

The gift card offered in the promotion can only be used for future Apple purchases and can't be used on the ‌Apple TV‌ purchase itself. Rumors suggest Apple is working on a new ‌Apple TV‌ that could launch this year, and the gift card promotion could be a means of clearing inventory ahead of the new model.

Put a decent chip inside and enter the console space, We already have controller support so they really could push Apple Arcade a lot further and make it worth wild.
Apple could put the M1 Ultra in there and still not compete with the consoles. Apple needs games. Games are what sells consoles and Apple just can't get the publishers to deliver top tier games for them. Just like entering the video streaming space, this is going to take a lot of cash to pull off and Apple could easily do it if they wanted, but so far nothing...

If you want a console full of free to play and throwaway titles, then yes, they understand it.

Console gaming is much different from iPhone and iPad gaming which is targeted to casuals. For a console to work you need the bigger developers working in their big titles, and Apple hasn’t shown they understand or even want to enter that market.

Amen! Nintendo has a much less powerful console but does great because they have games! I don't know any semi-serious gamer that doesn't own Mario Kart 8 on the Switch.
