Apple TV 2 Gets HTML5 Game via Jailbreak

The Apple TV 2 has been jailbroken for some time now, but progress has been slow in the app department. Users suspected that a jailbreak would open the doors to an entire App Store’s worth of possibilities, but we have yet to see any major support for games. But, an HTML5 blackjack game has emerged from the primordial ooze, once again giving us hope that maybe the Apple TV could be used for more than just video. The game is still pretty rough, but it proves that it is possible to bring games to the tiny device. We’re unlikely to see iOS-quality games anytime soon, but it’s a small step forward that could lead to something much more exciting.
