Apple held a live event in California today to announce several new products; as a part of this event, they showed off a remote peripheral for the new Apple TV. The Apple TV remote features an accelerometer, gyroscope, and a touch surface; it can be held horizontally to play games on the device like a standard controller or vertically to take advantage of motion controls. Apple announced that games like Hipster Whale’s Crossy Road, which you can check out in the video above, and Harmonix’s Beat Sports, which you can get a look at below, will support the device. Many are comparing the device to Nintendo’s Wii Remote controller, since it features a very similar set of control schemes.

Our Verdict


Elijah Holt
Greetings Gamnesiacs! I'm Elijah Holt, a Associate Editor coming at you live from beautiful Alabama. My love for gaming started at an early age and has ingrained a love for two different gaming companies in my mind. On one side, my love of the Nintendo 64 and my countless hours spent perfecting the first few levels of Super Mario 64 (I was never good enough to get past those...maybe if they release it for the Wii U eShop someday...) resulted in my love for everything Nintendo; meanwhile, I also owned an original PlayStation, which has resulted in me currently owning a PS3 and PS4 for a few Sony exclusives and third-party titles. I'm a recent graduate of Auburn University, where I majored in Software Engineering. I currently work in DevOps as an Automation Engineer. I look forward to continuing to provide the finest content on the internet to loyal Gamnesia readers like you. Want to contact me? You can always shoot me an email at [email protected]
