... what? Aspyr has been still doing lots more for Mac gaming than Freeverse what with their store and rereleasing titles on the Mac App store, offering Feral titles in theirs and now starting to port new games again. The same thing with freeverse this didn't suddenly happen when Lion was released but it was a matter of time when something isn't worked on or updated any longer that it'll stop working. PowerPC apps have been on a moratorium just waiting to be totally obsoleted since the transition to intel started to be frank.
Feral also has a stable of old games that are now obsolete on Lion that probably wont ever get updates but they just haven't made a press release about it. Most of them older games just like the ones that have been discontinued by Aspyr and Freeverse.
Would you be saying the same thing about them if they did?
This hysteria over the loss of rosetta is getting quite ridiculous if you ask me with all the doomsaying about these companies. Aspyr isn't closing down their store and pulling their games from the mac app store, other outlets and canceling their upcoming ports or anything. I've been down on them for not bringing enough new games to the Mac lately but even I see this.
People, Rosetta isn't the entire Mac gaming ecosystem and there are ways to get your classics to run on there even without it several ways actually.
