The Apple TV with the AirPlay Mirroring function provides real experience of game behind a bolshushchy TV set, well and diligence of iCade with hardware game governing bodies of troubles too should not be. After all, for hardkorny players veterans all this substitute in comparison with old-kind NES and pair of 2-push-button gamepads.
