iPhone 15 Pro will be supporting different console games

Apple said that several console games will be made available on the iPhone 15 Pro in the upcoming months at its major presentation a few days ago. Fans will be able to download and play Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil Village, and Death Stranding on the new phone later this year. Then, in the first few months of 2024, Ubisoft will release Assassin's Creed Mirage on the App Store.


Despite how amazing this breakthrough is, the Nintendo, PlayStation, and Xbox teams are undoubtedly unconcerned. Apple has had numerous chances to compete with the leading console manufacturers and game publishers but every time, the company rejects each request.

Backing up a little, the release of four contemporary triple-A games on iOS comes as a genuine surprise considering Apple's lack of commitment to the mobile gaming market. It would take a lot of work to market Apple Arcade, but the iPhone manufacturer is undoubtedly glad to receive its 30% commission from every app developer that sells games and in-app purchases on the App Store.

Additionally, there are very few premium games available on mobile devices. Look at the top-grossing iOS games on the App Store, as reported by market research company Sensor Tower. The top 25 games may all be downloaded for free with in-app purchases.


There are some exceptions, as top-rated PC and console games like Grand Theft Auto, Stardew Valley, and Minecraft enjoyed long-lasting success on the App Store, but profitable premium titles are scarce. Despite how well the iOS ports turn out, Resident Evil Village and Assassin's Creed Mirage can stop this trend. It's also unclear whether these console-caliber games will be available only on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Even though the A17 Pro chip is a considerable leap, Apple will lose a lot of players if these titles are incompatible with earlier hardware.


It's also unclear whether iPhone owners will be able to play these games using touch controllers or if a third-party controller is required. The lack of information was just another indication that Apple still doesn't give gaming much of a priority. That's not to suggest that a Resident Evil 4 port should have come before the announcement of the iPhone 15, but it seems like a pretty significant deal that the newest Assassin's Creed game is coming to iOS just months after it launches on PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC. However, no release date, cost, or other information was provided.

Therefore, console manufacturers may relax knowing that Apple is focused on issues other than attempting to persuade gamers to trade in their Switch or PS5 for an iPhone 15 Pro.
