MacWorld: Put gaming focus on Macs, not iPods
1:01 PM | Evan Holt | Comment on this story

Peter Cohen from MacWorld has posted an interesting article entitled "Put gaming focus on Macs, not iPods". This is in response to recent rumors that Apple has hired programmers to create downloadable games for the iPod.

While all this iPod-related speculation is going on, Mac gaming finds itself in trouble. Big trouble. People just aren’t buying a lot of games for their Macs. The reasons for this are myriad—piracy, the perception of the Mac as a machine for work instead of play, limited retail availability, long wait times for Mac ports, lack of Mac-compatible middleware, and so forth. Boot Camp—which lets you install and run Windows XP on an Intel Mac, making it possible to play PC games—isn’t helping, either.
Apple has the power to make or break the Mac gaming market and only time will tell if the rumors and their strategy will work.
