Apple will make gaming a primary selling point of the new Apple TV, reports the New York Times.

It’s tough to know how compelling the games on Apple TV will be until the company reveals the system this week. Yet many of the components necessary for a satisfying game experience will come with the device, the people say — including more power for better graphics, a new remote that could double as a controller and, perhaps most important, an app store to buy and download games.

“I think Apple’s going to create a big new category in gaming, one that others have tried and failed to create before,” said Jan Dawson, chief analyst at the technology research firm Jackdaw Research. “What the Apple TV has the potential to do is to bring casual gaming to the living room and make it a much more social activity.”

After leaving the Apple TV basically untouched for several years, Apple is expected to unveil a next generation device on September 9th. The device is said to feature an A8 chip, 8GB/16GB of storage, no 4K support, and the same ports. It's believed to come with a new touchpad remote that has a replaceable battery and motion sensors that will let you use it as a steering wheel in racing games.

Apple is expected to price the new Apple TV at $149. You can follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
