ACtually i DO want feral to port GRID, because I enjoy it in multiplayer, even though eddeduck claims that i wouldn't play it anymore because I finished it on Windows.
BTW Eddeduck, FYI, i'm playing CoD 4 on OSX even though i finished the single player compaign a while back on Windows.
And he wont port GRID, because Feral is affraid this game will only run on "Mac Pro" (btw it runs perfectly on a 8600GT with most details at max...) and they want lots of people to buy this game... So they'd rather port a 2006 game that would not need lots of optimizations (too complicated i guess to optimize games nowadays) to run on 2008 machines...
Eddeduck, think what you want, I think your strategy isn't the best. It's alright to port LEGENDS game, as you are saying, but is TOCA 3 a legends game ? Or is it another one you are gonna sell full price (i.e. the same as GRID PC ?). This IS NOT ok, even though it costs Feral a lot to port this game, I don't care. What is GRID PC worth these days on PC ? 50 euros ? For 40 euros I have its predecessor on OSX, yay ! Just port the latest one, sell it for 50 euros and although people claim they are happy with TOCA3, i'm sure they'd like GRID better (come on, Codemasters really did make a better game this times.. GRID had better reviews than TOCA 3 for its time)
I guess we will have GRID when GRID 2 (or whatever its name) will be out for PC/360/PS3... Too bad then. And for people who are telling Mac gaming isn't for me ? Well I dunno how you guys got used to pay 40 euros for old PC games on OSX, but i'm not. Guess you guys like to be ripped off. TOCA 3 must be 15 euros these days for Windows. Mac gaming can be a lot better than that, whether or not you guys ARE USED to play old games, I'm not and this can change.
All my posts are trying to send this message so game publishers make things move. And Apple is moving their asses, yes, stop telling Apple is blah blah blah not doing anything. I'll take, AGAIN, the example of WoW which runs in most cases better than Vista, stop stop talking bullpopsnizzle telling mac gaming is not for me. This game was out at the same time for PC and OSX, with a proper optimization for BOTH platform so IT'S possible. I don't care Feral ISNT Blizzard, then if you are not BLIZZARD, sell your game at a lower price instead of selling them full price.
I know i'm gonna pay 50-60 euros for StarCraft II / Diablo 3, knowing i'll play with PC users AT THE VERY SAME TIME they are playing it, full speed etc rather than paying 40 euros for TOCA 3. Where is the bargain here ? I don't get it...
Eddeduck, I know you don't care about what I'm saying because as long as Macbook people buy your games you are happy, but just wanted to tell you, not everyone is astonished by Feral lately, even though lots of fanboys there are impressed by TOCA 3. I guess that people that never played Pacman before should try it now, they'd be impressed.... Oh better, i guess you should at Feral port MS Pacman, for 40 euros, people will love it ! I know I love it !
