Apple CEO Tim Cook, recently spotted at Valve headquarters, may have been there to discuss a Kinect-like game console that would be released along with the rumored Apple television. Valve is well-known as the developer of popular games like Counter-Strike and Half-Life.
According to sources to Cult of Mac, Apple is working on a television set with an iTunes-integrated touch screen remote and Siri-like voice command technology. The TV set will be coming before the end of 2012. Rumors and patents have said as much for the past year, so that's nothing new. But that's not all we've heard.
Our sources also say that Apple's television set will come with an Apple-branded, Kinect-like video game console. The interface will rely heavily on motion and touch controls.
The site believes that Apple may be considering Valve as a partner for its entrance into living room gaming.
