Sorry for bumping this thread... But the platform I'll play it on will depend on whether D3 will support or not PPC Mac. If it does, then I will definitely play it on my G5 iMac. If not, then it will be on my bf's computer. Obviously, I'd rather play on my own computer, but it's nice to be able to fall on his for the games I can't have access to (ie. NWN 2).

Since D3 will not come before 2010 likely even later , I'm pretty sure it will not support PPC.

Sort of a funny topic imo. But to add to the answers, I'll most assuredly be playing this mac side. No reason to do Windows with Blizzards fantastic history of mac support. The only reason I can see anyone would do it on Windows, is if like ladyjaye mentioned, it won't run on PPC and you have access to a windows machine that runs it.

Given game release date, graphics, etc etc etc there is no way I can see this title being able to be played on a PPC. I'm as certain as I can be that it will be Intel only.

Agree with above points.

Blizz is amazing for having their games playable on all OS, hence why they are such a successful video game company.
I wouldnt worry too much, D3 will be able to be played on mac for sure. On a PPC.... not too sure wouldnt hurt to just try it out when you buy it because if it doesnt work on your iMac you can still just pop it into your boyfriends computer because its a universal binary game :P

PPC is dying a slow death, so blizzard would have x86 exclusive in mind.
