The Apple games console has arrived... sort of

iOS 5 tinkering leads to interesting results

An iOS developer has discovered a new feature in the recently-announced iOS 5 operating system from Apple that can make Apple TV function almost like a games console.


A new screen mirroring feature lets users beam a video feed from their iPad 2 to their TV via Apple TV. Another new function allows apps that support a TV-out option to display a secondary picture on the big screen.

Anyway, as a developer shows in the video below, all this babble means that you can beam the video from games on your iPad 2 that support TV-out directly to your TV and use your iPhone or iPad as controller. Sort of like a games console... geddit?
