Game Daily: Will Apple ever get serious about games?
6:00 AM | Evan Holt | 15 comments

James Brightman has posted an article on the web site Game Daily that stirs up the age old debate... "will Apple ever get serious about games?". With all the media attention at Macworld and the recent release of numerous games for the iPod, James questions just how long Apple can keep this up.

From the article there is a quote from Mark DeLoura (a former technical director at Ubisoft):

the Mac gaming market may not be big enough. Moreover, Apple doesn't seem as devoted to the space as they would need to be if they were truly serious about gaming. "The Apple guys, they were always very encouraging," DeLoura told CNet. "'Please bring stuff to the Mac, please bring stuff to the Mac,' but they never gave us a lot of support. They're great guys, but they don't have a lot of resources, I think." He added, "It didn't seem like we could justify porting over a hard-core shooter (game), because as far as we could tell, those games didn't sell on the Mac."
