IMG Interviews Steve Jobs
8:00 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games is proud to announce an interview with Apple's legendary CEO Steve Jobs. Since his triumphant return to Apple, games have been a major focus for the company. Why does Jobs feel so strongly about games? Was the new iMac built with gaming in mind? Check out our exclusive gaming interview with Apple CEO Steve Jobs.

At last month's Macworld Expo in San Francisco, IMG's own AppleMaster Michael Phillips talked with Jobs about gaming on the Macintosh:

Mike Phillips: Since your return to Apple, gaming seems to have become important to the Mac platform. Why do you feel that games are necessary to the success and expansion of the Mac OS?

Steve Jobs: Simply put, games are fun and lots of people want to have fun with their Macs. When I returned to Apple a few years ago, games were viewed as something which would paint the Mac as a less-than-serious business tool, so game development was discouraged. We feel quite differently, and actively try to nurture our game developers.
