There are some discoveries in the iOS 4.3 beta code that suggests gaming platform possibilities for Apple TV. But everything is still a mystery.

Before Apple announced its new $99 streaming Apple TV, there were rumors that the device could get some support for third-party iOS apps in its next iteration. Unfortunately, nothing materialized.

Two strings, “com.apple.appletv.play.live.thunder” and “.play.archive.thunder”, are pointing out that it is feasible for Apple TV to stream games or archive them for offline play. It can be speculated that the “OpenGL is mature and thoroughly implemented enough”, making low-bandwidth data streams and local computing possible.

"Last Tuesday, Apple said it expected sales of its next generation Apple TV to top one million units before Christmas. Today, the company confirmed they did just that." - All Things Digital on Apple TV

Digital site, All Things Digital, reported that Apple has finally confirmed the sales generated from their new Apple TV. The company garnered one million units for Apple TV which was launched last September. Apple put out a press release during the previous week that they expected to reach the milestone later on.

Here’s All Things Digital’s quote on the report:

“Last Tuesday, Apple said it expected sales of its next generation Apple TV to top one million units before Christmas. Today, the company confirmed they did just that. The timing of Apple’s “pre-announcement” press release was seen by many as curious, with some speculating that the release was published to counter the previous day’s news from competitor Roku that its sales had doubled since the launch of the Apple TV, and that it expected to hit the one million milestone by the end of the year.”

Gadg have its hats off for an outstanding year, Apple!
