Macintosh gamers from all over Friday hurried into the IMG IRC channel for the news; an exclusive two game announcement from an unidentified company. The company turned out to be none other than Macintosh gaming publisher Aspyr Media, and the two new games are the popular ultra-realistic stealth-action game, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, and the squad-based tactical shooter Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield.
Both games are expected to ship this October, and due to similar game engines, come with identical system requirements:
