Games coming to AppleTV

product-product.jpgSince the AppleTV was first announced back in September, we wondered if we were going to be able to play the games we can play on the iPod on AppleTV.  When the system was unveiled at Macworld this year, the company website makes it clear that the current iPod games will not play on the device…but that doesn’t mean that we won’t be getting games for the AppleTV.

According to Engadget, Greg Canessa, Xbox Live Arcade executive that recently jumped ship to PopCap Games (makers of Bejeweled, and Zuma) – let some Apple TV spoilage slip in a recent interview when discussing his job:

“It will be about taking the stable of franchises and games out of PopCap’s studio and adapting, customizing it for different platforms — adding multiplayer, new play modes, HD, customizing the user interface and display for Zune, iPod, Apple TV, Nintendo DS, PSP.”

Could Apple TV have just slipped out by accident, and not really be something they’re working on?  I suppose…but he also mentions HD – and none of the other devices he brings up are capable of HD output…so…you can bet that we’ll be seeing HD version of games in iTunes for AppleTV in the near future.
