Games AppleInsider, once one of the better Apple news sites, is rumouring that Apple CEO Tim Cook was spotted at Valve's HQ. Considering all the rumours Valve is working on a console (more fuel for the flames), this could potentially be interesting. As much as AppleInsider's story is being spread across the web - can anybody actually verify AI's story? It cites no sources, and could, for all we know, be completely made up. Anyone...?

Just release a nice BT controller

I don't think apple should release a standalone console. They already have a good gaming platform, the new iPad (and the iPhone to a lesser extent).

I've been hooking up an iPad from work to my projector and playing Real Racing on it. iPad games on a 10' screen. It's just as good as most console games.

The only big thing missing is the controller because touch screen just doesn't cut it for most games. All Apple needs to do is release a bluetooth controller and api for games. The good games will support it very quickly, and presto, you have an instant console.

Either play directly on the iPad, or plug it into the bigscreen TV. Or plug your iPhone into the TV. Then take your controller and start playing. How sweet would that be? One more device replaced by the smartphone/tablet.
