Apple Arcade is pretty cheap for a subscription based gaming platform, and now it is even cheaper. If players are willing to make a deeper commitment, they can now have the option of purchasing the $50 annual subscription and save $10 each year. Similar to Apple Music’s yearly subscription, this option is perfect for players who will stick around all year long and don’t mind paying in full.
Is this discount worth the price? If you play games on your Apple device, it sure is. Apple has been constantly releasing games onto Arcade over time including games such as Sayonara Wild Hearts, Skate City and Ultimate Rivals: The Rink. Players who decide to use Apple will be rewarded if quality games keep being released on Arcade.
There is a risk, however because passionate gamers are usually on consoles. The mobile gaming market is niche and Apple can take advantage of consumers who enjoy these unique games usually played on the go. Apple will make money on players who buy but do not always play the games. Someone who plays on their Apple device would have to buy many games to reach that $50 price tag. For players, it is a discount nevertheless and with the holiday season upon us, you can bet that many people will be enjoying a yearly subscription for Apple Arcade.
