Apple’s recently concluded event in San Francisco, California saw the unveiling of new gadgets by the tech giant. The event showcased Apple’s steps towards casual gaming with the Apple TV. The new device from Apple currently has a little library of games at its arsenal, but Activision is set to contribute some of their own titles for the Apple TV.

Publisher Activision recently confirmed through its site that three of its titles will be playable at the Apple TV. The games include “Guitar Hero Live,” “Skylanders Superchargers” and “Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions.” All three games will simultaneously launch later this autumn.

Players will be able to use the same Bluetooth guitar controller across iPhone, iPad and Apple TV. “Skylanders Superchargers,” meanwhile, will also allow the use of its Bluetooth portal hardware, which means that the “Skylanders” figures can be used on the Apple TV.

If users still have the portal from last year's Trap Team tablet game, that will still work, so all users will need is the new Superchargers game app. Saved Superchargers games will carry across between devices as well, so there will be no hassle of starting over.

It seems that the Apple TV is the pinnacle of Apple gaming as it does bring with it some current-gen games. A recent report by Engadget says that “Disney Infinity 3.0” and “Rayman” will be coming to the device as well.

"We can't wait for the game to launch next month and think people are going to get a kick out of living their rock star fantasy on consoles, mobile devices and Apple TV this fall," said Jamie Jackson, co-studio head and creative director at Guitar Hero Live studio, FreeStyleGames at Activision’s site..

With the Apple TV sporting a motion sensor controller, fans could expect more games to come in the following months. Apple could even produce AAA games as it recently announced its interest in allowing third-party controllers for the device.
