Apple Arcade launched September 20 to the public, and since then has gone on to win over gamers, as well as casual players with an extensive library and an affordable price point. I’ve been a heavy user since launch and I’ve been happy with the support from Apple and the various developers developing premium experiences, a vast difference to the usual offerings of free-to-play titles riddled with microtransactions.
This week is a special week for Apple Arcade because of the tally of total games available hitting 100 games. Apple Arcade with a subscription price of $5.99 (CAD) per month, users get unlimited access to the entire catalogue of 100 new, exclusive games, all playable across iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac and Apple TV.
