well, its not even been announced yet, so it will probably take a lot longer to be honest. CoD2 was released on mac around half a year after the PC version, which is pretty standard for mac porting...

Half a year is nice, I remember when it took around 18 months.

Fable has taken a good 3 Years.

anyways i can say that after playing the demo all my previous conceptions of the game were wrong. it takes everything that was popsnizzle about CoD and Un-popsnizzles it. and then it takes all that was good about Cod and goods it.
and the game is brilliantly built...i must say thats what i am looking toward most these days. games that are built so well that they will run brilliantly across an array of systems. This game does it well, as does Unreal tournament 3.

i never thought i say this but i'll be looking forward to a mac anouncement.

If CoD4 is even getting made for the Mac, then they had better announce something soon before I just cave in and get the PC version of it  :bleedingeyes: . If it turned out to be a Universal App (which I highly doubt now-a-days), then that would give me more of an incentive to getting the mac version.

I feel the same way. CoD4 sounds like the best game to come out in a long time. All the reviews agree. If i don't here something soon about a mac version I'm going to have to go to the dark side to play it. Hope i don't have to though.

I'd always prefer a Mac game given the choice...and there are enough Mac shooters out in the next few months to keep me busy for a while yet.

I would hope Aspyr would announce a port to be ready sometime next Summer. If they don't announce it by (say) Easter I think then's the time to start thinking about BootCamping it

If I recall correctly, they never gave a certain release date. Only something like "Q2 2008" or even just "2008".

In the release dates section of this site it says May but on Amazon you can pre order and they are saying July 7th. Dooohhh!!!

Both dates are more or less guesses. Aspyr actually only said "Summer".

The next few months, you say?

Besides Call of Duty 4, the only shooters on that list are Penumbra and Unreal Tournament 3. Penumbra doesn't really have any shooting, and I seriously doubt that UT3 will come out in the next few months.

If you ignore the fact that UT3 is essentially a prettier version of the same thing we've been playing since 1999, you'll still have to face the fact that the game won't look anywhere as good as the DirectX version, and it'll be a miracle if it doesn't run like a frozen turd despite the decreased rendering complexity.  

If you want to play CoD 4, go buy it on Steam.  At the risk of sounding like a broken record, you really have to love OS X to wait this long for a port that will be slower than the original version and missing graphical/aural features.  As usual, I vote for Steam.  That way, you'll be able to avoid the hassle of physical media, play anywhere with a fat pipe to the internet, receive updates automatically, and use the Steam Community (including the overlay) to keep track of your friends and teammates.

Hey Quicksilver, I do agree to a point with you. Buuuut you're also correct with "you really have to love OS X to wait this long".

i agree with you, except for the particulars. Dont buy CoD4 on Steam unless you have a really good reason for doing so. The reason being that the game is priced at $70. whilst in the real world, with a DVD, youll save yourself at least $20.. On this game in particular, Steam needs to drop the price to reach parity. The rest of the time, Id probably wait for a sale of some description (Like the christmas blow out that they had with 25% of all games.) unless its a new game in which case the pricing will most likely be the same as a retail copy.

It should look identical.  There were a couple of graphical features UT2004 was missing at first in the Mac version, but were added later when Apple added the necessary extensions.

That's a good point--I was being a typical American and forgetting about people outside of the United States.  My bad!

Well, the D3D and OGL rendering paths could look identical.  However, OpenGL is a lot harder to write for because it doesn't have a big company like Microsoft supporting it, so there's no guarantee that Epic has made those paths identical in terms of detail.  If they have to beg Apple to update their drivers and add missing OpenGL features, God help them. :happy:
