We all know the problem with mobile games these days, constant adds, in-app purchases and games sole reason for existing to get you to buy extras in game. This model is 180 degrees different from the classic console gaming model. With console gaming you buy a game and play it, some modern titles offer in-game purchases but do not show adds like mobile gaming does.

Apple Arcade seeks to set right the problem they essentially help create by giving users a console like gaming experience without the need to buy any games or own a console.
