No Macs In A Galaxy Far, Far Away
8:19 AM | Cord Kruse | 18 comments

In what may come as no surprise to many jaded Mac gamers, a recent Slashdot Q&A with the President of Sony Online Entertainment squashed any small hopes of a Mac version of the Star Wars Galaxies MMORPG. In response to a question about the possibility of a Mac version John Smedley replied in the negative, citing prohibitive costs.

OS X client? by Dark Paladin:
I realize that this is a long shot, but with the rise of Mac sales and the upcoming change of Macs from PPC to X86, is there a chance if an OS X client? One of the reasons I believe that Blizzards WoW has done so well is because it allows both major desktop OS's to play together, rather than trying to partition on group on a separate server (or pretending they don't even exist, with all of those dollars itching to be spent).

John Smedley:
Unfortunately, no. I absolutely love Macs (I've got 2 at home myself). I wish we could do this, but it's enormously cost prohibitive if you didn't start out from the beginning with Mac development in mind.
