    More like sucks for the lazy programmers.

    I wonder if by using the same technique they use to recode the PC games to the Mac if they could then take the Intel version and have it converted to the PPC architecture.s

    I don't think they are lazy, there is just a cost involved in going to PPC, and with the limited Mac gaming segment, there's not much advantage going to PPC. With the Intel Macs, it's MUCH more straightforward since there's no huge code conversion.

    I have consoles for that. The only game on my G5 is Call of Duty 2.

    Other than that I have a PS2, Wii, Dreamcast & GC. A PS3 is in my future once my cards are paid off. No 360 tho, not until they get their shit together.
