Is Boot Camp Good For Mac Gaming?

Macworld's Peter Cohen recently examined the impact of Apple's Boot Camp, software which allows Intel Mac owners to boot into Windows XP. In discussions with notables from the Mac gaming scene, including Glenda Adams of Aspyr Media and Colin Lynch Smith of Freeverse Software, Cohen explored the possibilities including the potential growth of Mac gaming.

On the positive side for Mac game publishers, Boot Camp lowers a serious barrier to entry for people who might have considered buy a Mac but were put off by the selection of games or the absence of critical software applications they need for their work. “My personal theory is that there are going to be people who would never have bought a Mac before now, who will,” Destineer’s Tamte said.

Tamte doesn’t believe a dual-boot Mac will dilute the strength of Mac OS X or original software developed for Mac OS X.

“When people have both Windows XP and Mac OS X running on the same computer, they’re going to prefer to be on Mac OS X as much as they can,” he added.
