Chicago Tribune Discusses Mac Games
9:29 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

The Chicago Tribune has posted a recent article on the subject of Mac gaming. Specifically, it notes the gap that exists between PC and Mac gaming in terms of availability and release times. In addition, it also notes the speculation going on concerning the Mac gaming market and Apple's decision to switch to Intel processors.

The main bulk of the speculation, of course, centers around the possibility of easier ports. Niko Coucovanis, Editor for MacAddict, is quoted on this:

Neither Apple nor Intel have made any mention if Mac game development will be affected -- but the possibility should tantalize Mac gamers.

"Someday, yes, software and game developers will still be writing to platforms, but the underlying architecture should be similar enough that the toughest programming will work both ways," Coucovanis says.

While the article itself doesn't cover any ground not already trampled to death by the Mac community, it's interesting to note that such topics are making their way to even non-Mac-centric news platforms. Apple's shift to Intel is certainly making waves, and we'll probably be seeing similar reports throughout its implementation.
