“The latest release of iTunes, numbered 7.1, brings clear evidence that the Apple TV will be able to play games as users on the Internet noticed that it makes reference in its resource files to an Apple TV Games syncing feature,” Alexandros Roussos reports for MacScoop.
Roussos reports, “A search for ‘Apple TV’ in the program’s localization strings, which can be accessed from the compiled version of the program, brings us the following result, among many others: ‘Are you sure you want to sync games? All existing games on the Apple TV “^1” will be removed‘ where ‘^1’ is a variable which is replaced by the name given to the Apple TV device.”
