Are any of these going to be on available on tvOS?
Another note related to the Apple TV, the newest model, the 2022 ATV4K3 with the A15 chip has been thermal throttling when playing certain games, I wonder if this issue might impact developers and/or Apple on releasing certain games on Apple Arcade.

It is pretty bad, the 2021 ATV4K2 can actually outperform the 2023 model for some games due to having a fan.

I attached a passive heatsink for the top of the ATV4K3, and it helps to a point, then the frame rate drops. I just purchased a heatsink with a fan, and I expect it to be a big improvement. Testing it this weekend.

Because 90% of the hardware Apple sells won't run it and they are not made for the Metal API. Unless Apple is gonna fork over some serious cash it's never going to happen and Apple Arcade will be stuck with games we could play on Miniclip for free 15 years ago.

Junk. Utter Junk. Not enough to make me divert 5 min of my time while on the toilet. Apple doesn't understand gaming. Where is the AAA title? Where is the multiplayer sensation? Where is the next Twitch streaming phenomenon? What are your exclusives and franchise tentpoles? What, Angry Birds and temple run again? 2009 wants its apps back.

I don't understand how Apple keeps dropping the ball on gaming.
