Would You Pay for OS X Deus Ex?
8:26 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

In an interesting IMG forum thread, Glenda Adams, new development lead for Aspyr Media's internal dev team, posed the question of whether you'd pay some amount for them go back and bring older titles like Deus Ex to Mac OS X.

The thread brings up an good point that as Mac gamers have made the transition to OS X, they have been forced to part with their "Classic" favorites, especially many that dealt heavily in 3D. The problem then becomes one of priority for a publisher like Aspyr, who is more certain to make money on new titles rather than spending time and effort to port old ones to OS X.

Here's more from Adams:

I'd also welcome feedback on any other games- anything else Aspyr shipped in the past 6 years you'd buy as an updated OS X version? And would you be more likely to buy one game for $19.95 or a collection of 3 games for $39-$49? Hard-core gamers (and DX fans) are welcome, but I'd also love to hear from people who never played some of these original games, or who are casual fans.

Post away! Here's your chance to provide some direction to the Mac game market!

If you feel strongly one way or the other, you're encouraged to join the forum thread and voice your opinion.
