Do you think Apple Arcade could be more than a Subscription?

When I heard about Apple Arcade I wasn’t expecting it to be a mobile subscription for ad-free mobile / iPad games. I was more expecting a gaming platform similar to Steam. Do you think that Apple could do compete in the gaming space and Apple Arcade could be more than just another subscription to pay for?

@Amelia Nice, the Fediverse is getting bigger <3

@Amelia Yeah always good to see more active users, as it shows that people not only enjoy the Fediverse but also just use it in general.

It get's people talking about the topic, in most cases it really doesn't do much but in some it can disrupt peoples days that much they feel they have to do something about it and the only way to stop most protests are to think about what they are trying to ask for and try and give it to them.

@bingbong From my research Apple has the best quality for Shows and Movies especially for price. The Apple TV app can be accessed on my Chromecast and I am seemly getting to the point Apple is my go to platform for work, so will most likely not be moving away from Apple anytime soon.

SamXavia OP ,

Hey so I tried using Plex for a server, and sure it's amazing and works but running a PC 24/7 is very costly and like you mentioned the Hard Drives do cost quite a bit. I also don't have much space to store hundreds of TV Shows and Movies sadly. The reason I want to go Digital is due to space as well as giving myself the possibility of travelling with all my Tech without having to leave servers and stuff online at home.

Sure paying the same price as a TV Show or Movie in Physical is annoying but from what I have seen through Apple is there Movies that are 4k are actually still in the normal bluray price, if that. I can see what you mean about the Funimation & Crunchyroll stuff TBH knowing they are merging and they aren't supporting peoples purchase is a dick move TBH. The only other option I have is probably piracy or streaming services (I don't like streaming services), I like to get money to the creators of the film / show as much as possible and I feel this might be one of the only ways than buying random merch that I won't like / use.

Thanks for the thoughts though as I will have to make a plan for if companies pull there content from Apple, hopefully Apple has made a plan to support those purchases in some sort of way or something, Maybe there's a place to look at that information.

SamXavia OP ,

Yeah I feel pretty much the same way, the hurdles I have to go through to watch Physical media, but the price of streaming services are going up and I rather just watch the Shows and Movies that I want to watch, even if it's the 17th time this month.

My main issue is all the Marvel TV Shows aren't released on Apple TV or anything other than Disney+, I hope that changes in the future as I would love to purchase them instead of Disney trying to force me into purchasing Disney+, It's just easier and cheaper to find it online even know I like to pay the creators of a show / movie.

SamXavia OP ,

You can watch your purchased movies and shows from the library section.

SamXavia OP ,
SamXavia avatar

Yeah it’s just not worth paying the same price for a worse version just to own and store it.

SamXavia OP ,
SamXavia avatar

It's actually an app I already found and am using, I agree, it's a really helpful app to be able to have for deals on latest Movies and Shows (as well as other Apple software stuff).

I got my first Apple Device Recently

So I recently got myself a cheap iPhone (iPhone SE Gen 2 [2020]) the main downside I've had with it is that I really don't like the size of the screen, So I ended up purchasing a iPad 9th Gen to use the Apple Ecosystem more, my next problem is I really just want all of my devices to be apart of the Apple Ecosystem, just sadly I...

Does anyone think that GTA Online for GTA 6 could be crossplatform or do we think Rockstar just won't bother to make it so people can play on whatever platform they like?

It's not a bad thing, gives you the option to read them on the Fediverse and it proves that the Fediverse could possibly be the future of Social Media. It's good to see other people want to see it grow.

If people don't like it then personally block it, the only reason for blocking a whole instance, instance wide is if it has morals that conflict to much such as a Anti-LGBT instance vs a LGBT one.

Fediverse update thread 🔔🧵

For those of you who don't know, @Threads is being built on the ActivityPub protocol, which means that it will be interoperable with other apps/servers like Mastodon over time. This week we took a small, but important, step by allowing people in the Fediverse, who don't use Threads or even have an Instagram account, to follow my Threads account as well as a few others. Content is starting to flow from Threads to the Fediverse.

SamXavia ,
SamXavia avatar

@mosseri Glad you are looking at these replies and glad you are getting work on fixing it. Can't wait to be able to talk to the Threads people.

Clicking one of the accounts that you can follow from and this is what you are instantly greeted with, terrible vibes.

@realhackhistory Is this only when you go on Threads itself? As there obviously issues with EU and other countries law if they are collecting that data without permission on non-threads users.

If it's for the users that are on Threads only then it's what people seem to want to feel comfy then sure that's ok I guess. Just use other Instances to stop it.

With coming to the I think it needs to be said unless it violates your ToS just allow users to block the instance instead of forcing a blanket Block as some people may want to talk to there friends on Threads.

u really learn that follower count means nothing when you see people with half your follower count with significantly more people talking about them

SamXavia ,

@nano Then you see people with hardly any followers that get no comments or reactions at all.

I'm glad I have slowly moved away from Reddit, hope we get some sort of Fedi recap stuff in the future as is a really cool idea but glad we don't get forced to use Apps and stuff.

SamXavia ,
SamXavia avatar

I would guess it would be instance to instance basis and will most likely have to be 100% transparent with what it's doing.

SamXavia ,
SamXavia avatar

So how would they take PixelFed, Mastodon, Lemmy & Kbin / Mbin? They can only try add a feature and if the rest of the Fediverse doesn't like it, they won't add it to there own platforms,

SamXavia ,
SamXavia avatar

So like I said, if people don't like what they add, we just won't add it. Why should we bend over backwards, also EEE is a Microsoft thing more than anything. It won't kill decentralisation it would just prove that companies like that are shit.

Two important Threads updates 🔔🔔

First, Threads is expanding to more countries across Europe, so people there can follow and join the conversations they care about. We’re starting to roll out in more countries now on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store; www.threads.net is live everywhere now.

@mosseri Glad to see you on here, followed you yesterday and wondered when there were gonna be updates, glad you are here and I hope you and your team are a great start to making the Fediverse a great place for the whole internet. Keep up the good work.

SamXavia ,

Less of a public figure than Zuck I was meant to say. I really do hope they have a goodish intent and I'm sure the Fediverse will keep on going with or without META, just really hope to see more of a general audience join us on the Fediverse

It's why I moved over to Kbin / Mbin lol

I would love to see what your vault looks like and how you lay it out as I love using Obsidian as a sort of database.
