Changes to Apple TV, including more emphasis on gaming, are expected to be coming soon, keeping in line with what Steve Jobs had originally planned for the device. The E3 conference was the place to show off iOS gaming controllers this year, making a push towards meeting that goal.

Of the companies showing off devices at the Electronic Entertainment Expo event, many of the largest gaming companies were on hand, including Mad Catz, BigBen Interactive, and Razer. These controllers have proven to be very similar to console-style controllers, including ones that heavily resemble Xbox controllers.

These devices will connect using Bluetooth technology and some even have clips to attach to existing iDevices, turning them into portable gaming consoles. Important to many, though, is the potential functions for Apple TV upgrades that are expected at some point. Using their set top box, Apple could easily enter the home console game with the right Apps. One of the original Xbox engineers has even stated that Apple could easily take over the market with the right kind of efforts.

This is certainly an exciting time for Apple fans who are also fans of gaming, so if this change comes it could skyrocket Apple TV sales in comparison to where they have been for the past few years. While Roku and others have kept ahead, Apple could easily retake the top spot.
