MacRumors.com: Apple Creating A Gaming Division?
10:51 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story
According to an anonymous tip provided to rumor site MacRumors.com, Apple and graphics chip manufacturer, ATI, have been in discussions about creating or purchasing a game development unit. Here's the report from the web site:
The purpose of such a division would presumably be to create compelling games for the Mac platform to help attract more PC users to switch to the Mac platform.Could this mean that Apple will be creating an in-house porting team to compete with the likes of Aspyr and MacSoft? As with any rumor, this story should be taken with a grain of salt.
Such a move would not be uncharateristic for Apple, as their decision to create Safari as well as many of their iApps were in part to fill a void not provided by 3rd party developers on the Mac platform.
Apple does appear serious about improving gaming performance on the Mac. Recent reports noted that Apple, ATI and NVidia are actively recruiting developers to improve OpenGL performance.
