That's exactly the point: Transgaming advertises Cider as solution for Mac "ports" without having the original developer to hand over the code to anyone else
I'm pretty sure that if the devs were going to go that way, they might be expected to change a few things. Copy protection comes to mind. They still wouldn't have to hand over the code to anyone else.

Then I guess they do suck.

Not necessarily: Transgaming's biggest "achievement" was to make our favourite DRM mechanism SecuROM work via a WINE derivative. Vide Spore.

But there's one good thing about Transgaming's inability to "port" all PC games to the Mac "in a few days or weeks":
More and more publishers (be it traditional Mac houses, Windows-centric companies or newcomers) start doing
native ports again, e. g. VP (X3), Coladia Games, Hothead/Playgreenhouse, and - to much suprise - Microids.
:)

And as it seems, even Aspyr might enjoy a "comeback" this year.

My experience with Cider games so far has been a good one. The biggest problem is the DRM. Raving Rabbids & Spore take forever to launch. Once they do however you can't tell it isn't a native Mac game.

As far as EA goes they will always have one thing I admire them for. Future Cop LAPD, made on a Mac and only released as a hybrid disc to boost sales with PC owners.
