Parts of the internet went mental at the weekend after it was revealed that Apple boss Tim Cook had visited the offices of Steam owner Valve.
But talk of a possible acquisition was wide of the mark. However, Cult of Mac claims to have word on the true reason behind the visit – Apple is working on a games console.
Cult of Mac reckons that in conjunction with this project Apple is also working on an iTV product – an Apple branded HD TV that will integrate the company’s digital services and Siri voice commands.
It believes that the TV will ship with “an Apple-branded, Kinect-like video game console” that will integrate motion and touch control.
However, where the story falls apart a little is on further claims that Valve is looking to team with Apple for its mysterious console project. Yep – that’s the one that was rubbished by Valve this morning.
