Apple Looks At Online Gaming
8:44 AM | Galen Wiley | Comment on this story

Mac gamers may be interested to know that Apple has posted a concise guide to online gaming on their website. This exclusive feature, titled Virtual Fun: Multiplayer Online Gaming, covers three major Mac multiplayer services: Scott Kevil's GameRanger, Freeverse's GameSmith, and Blizzard's Battle.net. The article then discusses how each system works. A complete list of supported games for each service is included.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

And look for highly anticipated new releases, such as Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, to be available on the service as well. “GameRanger is the de facto standard,” Kevill explains, “and just as nearly all existing [Mac] games support it, pretty much every new game will as well.”
If you are new to the internet gaming scene, or are further interested, be sure to check out this exclusive feature found only at Apple. A link is provided at the bottom of the article.
