The Mac Observer: Game Companies Talk Universal Binaries
2:00 PM | Evan Holt | 3 comments

A recent article over at The Mac Observer gives us a break down of game performance under Rosetta, plans for Universal Binaries and quotes from prominent people in the Mac gaming industry.

A Universal Binary version of Unreal Tournament 2004 might show up "in the next few days."
Glenda Adams, Director of Development at Aspyr Media said "a few of the more recent games, like The Sims 2 and Doom 3, don't run as well". She added that Doom 3 and The Sims 2 will both receive Universal Binary patches, which will be free
Some older games such as MacSoft's Scrabble run so smoothly under Rosetta that you would not even know that it was running in emulation
The consensus from game companies is that the move to Intel is a good one, but they won't be moving to Intel-only games for roughly another two years.
