I somewhat agree.  Although, the fact that Apple has been several years late on so many things actually makes me think that they will be several years late again in the gaming space and finally start doing something there before too long.

As a longtime customer in the gaming industry, reading that sentence feels like fingernails on a chalkboard. I personally look forward to it not happening.

Why? Apple Services are usually not that competitive with the best in class offerings.

Apple Music? Spotify still doing great.
Apple TV+? Netflix and the likes are still kicking butt.

Care to elaborate? I was speculating in the post you quoted that Apple will likely enter the video game industry in some fashion ... and they did, a few months later, with Arcade. Does that somehow make you unhappy as a gamer? If so, why?

Did they? I wasn't even aware, that must tell a lot.
