Earlier today, BuzzFeed News reported that a revamped Apple TV box and software will be coming in the near future. The new software will have an App Store for third-party apps, something that's been a long time coming, and possibly Apple's upcoming internet-based TV service.
Most likely, it will be officially announced at Apple's new WWDC event in June where the SDK will be released to developers.
The new Apple TV box will supposedly have a new design (possibly a new controller for gameplay and such), a new A8 chip, and will support voice control with Siri.
The current generation Apple TV were just cut from $99 to $69, presumedly to make way for the upcoming ones, but there's no word on whether or not some—or all—of the new software features will be available on older Apple TV set-top boxes.
So, will you be getting an Apple TV now at the cheaper price, or holding strong for the rumored version? Or, don't care at all?
I was thinking of getting the current one because of the price drop, since the majority of my movie files aren't compatible with my Xbox 360, and I don't have a smart TV yet (which also probably wouldn't be able to play my movies), and I'd like to be able to use the AirPlay feature on the Apple TV to make things easy on me, but now I'm thinking about waiting.
