Ask Aspyr Returns
11:38 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

IMG has posted Ask Aspyr - Volume 2. A few weeks ago we asked IMG readers to send in questions for Aspyr Media for a feature called Ask Aspyr. Michael Rogers, the President of Aspyr Media, took the time to answer the numerous questions.

Here's a clip from the feature:

Question: Are you planning to move to OS X-only ports in the near future? - Jensen Gelfond

Answer: Yes. It's really more a matter of doing the games as quickly as possible, and that Apple is doing a great job adding technologies to OS X, and continuing to add technology to OS X. So, it's inevitable that we'll do OS X only titles.

Since we've received these questions, we've announced Nascar 2002, and it is OS X only.

Other reasons for doing OS X are time to market (if doing OS X only makes a big difference in when the title is released), technology (something is present is OS X that's not in OS 9), and in general that machines have been shipping with OS X for some time now, and some games will basically require newer hardware, and OS X is included on all the new systems, so we know it's at least there.
