Mac Game Developers React to Intel Switch
8:49 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Following the announcement that Apple will be switching to Intel in 2006, IMG contacted several Mac game developers to get their initial thoughts. A growing concern came after yesterday's keynote, when Apple's Phil Schiller stated there are no plans to sell or support Windows on an Intel-based Mac. "That doesn't preclude someone from running it on a Mac. They probably will," he said. "We won't do anything to preclude that."

Reactions from developers run the gamut from fear about cannibalized sales to excitement about better performance being able to keep up with that latest game technology and faster porting times. Uncertainty is the common thread, as no one will know what these new machines are truly capable of, and the implications that will arise because of this move, until they are released.
