Apple Arcade and the end of game ownership



Game subscription has come mainstream. Apple Arcade.
This decade seems to focus on the end of ownership of consumers.
Last decade started of with the cloud which has paved way for forgoing the ownership of servers first and then it lead to so many other things like music, movies and now games.
Even on the physical space the rise of ending the consumer ownership has skyrocketed. Hiring cabs, furniture, office space and so many things have become mainstream in the past 10 years.

After Apple Arcade I don't know how many people are going to buy game anymore. If it is anything executed like Netflix or Amazon prime for movies and TV shows, buying individual games is going to be thing of the past.

Developers not getting a chance getting into Apple Arcade have to strive very hard to get noticed elsewhere.

From what I've heard, and will be testing later today, the biggest rule to be included is No IAPs.
If that's true, then .. frankly, that's fucking huge..

According to the Youtube reviews, yes there will not be any IAP and no Ads in the Apple Arcade lineup.

Hmm.. it's still not showing up on my iPad...?
Currently downloading Chu Chu Rocket to my iPhone..
All seems good and locked down, and not full of usual MobileGaming crap.
If they keep these rules in place, this might be a very good thing.

Aaah, it requires ios13 beta!!
How odd to launch a service, make a big deal of launching it, but only have it run on a beta version!!?

Might have to beta my iPad, then..
Hmmm...

There seem to be a number of examples of this kind of thing,,
And I'm not sure that's the spirit of the service..

I unsubscribed.

I rarely have time to play games, and what games I have on my Switch are more than enough for me.
I WILL be resubscribing for Mum, but as of this moment, Mum's older iPad can't cope with it, and so it would only go to waste.

Mum desperately needs a new iPad. .. It struggles with Shoebox!!!
Priorities. That first, THEN the games.
