Prediction: Apple Arcade may end up being a bigger winner for Apple than its TV service

Apple Arcade will launch later this year with over 100 games from various developers. In March, the company announced its foray into the video game subscription service with AppleArcade, promising around 100 exclusive titles to its devices. In fact, as gamers become more worn out by the inordinate advertising and demands for in-app purchases, Apple is uniquely positioned to offer a breath of fresh air in the form of quality games that make no financial demands on users other than a flat monthly subscription fee for the service as a whole.
"Apple has joined forces with some of the world's most innovative game developers to push the boundaries of what's possible".
While Apple has commented on the financial Times report, if it's accurate then Apple is putting aside half a billion dollars to make Apple Arcade a success.
Apple is also reportedly offering developers extra incentives if they agree to make their games temporarily exclusive to Arcade. Which still doesn't have a launch date other than the understanding that it's coming later this year, but it seems that the iPhone maker has chose to spend several hundred million dollars on more than 100 games, for a total spend of more than $500 million on this offering that users will pay a monthly fee for. Arcade is all set to launch in this year's fall. Their predictions are based off of 29 million users by 2024, paying a subscription price of $12.99 per month. In addition to that, if the users do not provide explicit consent, Arcade games will not be allowed to share any of their data with the publishers.
Instead, users can play games with their existing laptops, desktops, TVs, tablets or phones and use their own keyboard or mouse. It has been pushing hard to get as many high quality and high profile games for its Arcade Service. All games on Apple Arcade are handpicked by the company and the option to play and access these will be limited to the company's devices.
