Macworld Interviews Game Developers on Intel Macintosh
9:14 AM | Franklin Pride | Comment on this story

Macworld has posted an interview with multiple game developers on the subject of Intel-based Macs. The interview features developers such as Ambrosia Software and Destineer and covers multiple problems with the upcoming change.

Destineer and MacSoft president Peter Tamte calls Apple’s decision to switch to an Intel-based architecture “an aggressive move” to grow the size of the Macintosh’s market. “The switch to Intel should also help us narrow the gap between a game’s release on Windows and release on Mac.”

Apple has said that it won’t prevent Windows from running on an Intel-based Mac, though it won’t sell or support Windows either. Some in the industry have taken that as implicit acknowledgment that Windows will run natively on an Intel-based Mac, or at the very least, considerably faster than is now possible using Microsoft’s Virtual PC emulator.
