- Findingquality games on the App Store is notoriously hard. Historically, Apple doesn't consider games to be a primary pillar of their service, despite the millions of people playing (and spending money on) games on iOS devices every day.The Indie Game Showcase will hardly fix that, but it is a step in the right direction. The new section on the App Store highlights critically acclaimed, independent games and the developers who make them."Often made up of just a few dedicated members, independent studios prove that what really matters is the size of your dream," the showcase reads. "In each Indie Game Showcase, we celebrate a popular game and its creative team, highlighting the developer's titles along with their favorite games from other studios.""
- At their special live event this morning, Apple made a number of exciting announcements regarding the next Mac operating system, the next generation of iPads, and the highly anticipated new Mac Pro desktop computer. After taking an extended moment to remind everyone just how great the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c are doing after their initial launch last month and just how much we all love them, not to mention the new iOS 7 operating system, Apple got right down to everything we were hoping to hear, and then some.The first real announcement of the morning came in the form of OS X Mavericks, Apple's tenth operating system for desktop computers. Big improvements to the new OS will include better power efficiency, an enhanced system memory, and integrated graphics that are more fully optimized for the platform. Compressed memory in OS X Mavericks will now allow users to run more applications at the same time than ever before without experiencing a slowdown, while the new memory will give users an extra hour of internet browsing and an hour-and-a-half of watching iTunes movies on a single charge."A new map app and iBooks will also be debuting alongside OS X Mavericks, in addition to a highly refined implementation of system notifications. But Apple is doing more than just upping the desktop operating system to sophisticated new levels, as they're also taking aim at revolutionizing pricing. And to prove that point, Apple has announced that OS X Mavericks will be available completely for free to all Mac desktop users, whether they are currently running last year's Mountain Lion operating system, or even as far back as Snow Leopard. In a single-step update, all users will be able to upgrade to OS X Mavericks starting today.
- For all the anxious Android owners out there who have been patiently waiting all summer to get their hands on the highly anticipated release of PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time, we might finally have an answer as to what's been taking so long. Allegedly, Apple has been paying PopCap to intentionally delay the Android release of the game, in order to extend the window of iOS exclusivity for PvZ 2 that Apple has been enjoying ever since the game's official worldwide launch this past August.Giant Bomb broke the news of this interesting piece of information earlier this morning, after watching an "internal town hall meeting" for Electronic Arts. During the presentation, head of EA Labels Frank Gibeau was reported as saying "Apple gave us a truckload of money to delay the Android version [of Plants vs. Zombies 2]." The game in question has only been released on Android devices in China so far, where it is said to currently be outselling the iOS version by "six-to-one" in that specific market."It should also be noted that paid exclusivity deals are not all that uncommon in the competitive games industry, with most big releases on home gaming consoles getting some form of extra content that is exclusive to a single company for a predetermined amount of time. What is intriguing is that Apple now seems to be taking a much more aggressive approach in its own gaming deals against the competing Google platform, and that this same kind of industry competition has now seeped its way into the mobile games space.
- It's September. The kids are back to school, the leaves are changing color, and Apple is ready to unleash its latest iPhone models on a tech-hungry public - and that's exactly what they did today during the Apple Keynote in Cupertino, California.
- A 2011 lawsuit filed by five California parents against Apple over deceptive in-app purchases might finally see a resolution this week, as the powerhouse corporation has agreed to pay out those parents "who can show that their child made in-app purchases using iTunes Store or App Store credits." The lawsuit comes as a result of children who unknowingly racked up huge bills of free-to-play in-app purchases with their parents' real money, most of which totaled between $99 and $1,500.
- Living room gaming will no doubt change quite a bit over the next few years. Sony and Microsoft will release their new consoles, sure, but they'll be up against a whole new cast of competitors, such as Android-based consoles like the OUYA and the forthcoming third- and first-party Steam Boxes. And while Microsoft and Sony are surely quivering in their boots at the potential of the Steam Box, the feeling isn't necessary mutual: as far as Valve co-founder Gabe Newell is concerned, the real threat here is Apple.
- If you're reading this site right now, there's a decent chance you play a lot of video games. Furthermore, you probably play some or all of those games on a smartphone or tablet. Well, tablet gamers - specifically those that own an iPad - this news is for you: Apple is releasing a new, 128GB iPad 4 on February 5. That... is a whole lot of room for games.
- Apple is now forbidding developers from changing the screenshots of their app without resubmitting the app for approval. This new guideline will no doubt prove to be a thorn in the side of developers everywhere, but in theory it should also put the kibosh on one of the seedier App Store practices out there.
