Tuncer's Blog: The Real Reason Half-Life 2 Isn't on the Mac
1:29 PM | IMG News | 7 comments

A few days ago Valve's Gabe Newell, in an interview with Kikizo.com, laid out some of the reasons why Half-Life 2 and some of the other company's titles aren't on the Mac platform. IMG Publisher Tuncer Deniz has his take on it and explains that the real reason why Valve's titles aren't on the Mac is not because Apple doesn't take the Mac gaming seriously but because Newell didn't get the big bucks. Here's a clip from the blog:

So I read the interview with Valve's Gabe Newell where he puts all the blame for the lack of Half-Life 2 on the Mac because of Apple (you can read the interview at kikizo.com). While I have no doubt that Newell has a few valid points about Apple's lack of focus when it comes to games, the real reason Half-Life 2 never made it to the Mac is because of Newell's outrageous asking price for the Mac port.
