Recently purchased Backbone PlayStation Edition for my iPhone and got 3 months of Apple Arcade access for free. Absolutely love it and plan on keeping it active, while continuing to get more games through it. Would like to add the games I have played already to my existing collection. Can we please finally have Apple Arcade as a Platform selection, since it is a platform compatible with all four major Apple devices?

I'm not familiar with Apple Arcade, but from what I understand, it doesn't really fit in what the site defines as a "platform" since it's a subscription that grants you access to games available for other platforms. Not that we have to mimic other sites, but I checked a few and they did not list Apple Arcade as a platform, but rather iOS, tvOS, iPad, etc. We don't have iPad currently, but we do have the other two.

That being said, I could certainly see it being a digital format provider for Apple TV (which I suppose should be renamed to include "tvOS"), Mobile (iOS), and Mac. I'll wait though and see if others can chime in with thoughts.

Yes. That could work as well. it would give members the flexibility to initially choose Apple TV, Mac or Mobile (iOS). Then select Apple Arcade, among the other services, from the other pulldown selector under Format. I definitely like that idea better.

I personally dont include subscription games into my collection, but apple arcade (tvOS/AppleTV, iOS, Mac), should probably work how playstation plus is avaliable for PS3/4/5/Vita, as an option on the format drop down menu when selecting digital

I really appreciate the input made so far and curious to see how many others out there are interested or even play Apple Arcade games. They do have exclusives that are good games. They are not amazing, but they are good. Like Detonation Racer (The Split Second sequel we never got from Blackrock and Disney). For the time being, I will simply file the games under AppleTV and put Apple Arcade in the Edition slot for now. Pragmatism.

The Apple Arcade digital provider has been added.

Splendid. There will be quite a few title requests coming your way.
