Excited for this. As I use only Mac for personal use/at home, this will be awesome to get back to gaming again.

I'm just glad they are taking initiative and branching out, with Mac may come linux and new and possibly very potential markets open up for developers.

Imagine if UE3.x or even UDK was ported to Linux/Mac!!

I mostly like this because if it draws gamers away from Windows and to Macs, that hurts MS sales- which might encourage them to improve their support of PC Gaming.
We are talking about Apple. If more people starting buying Macs then their prices would probably go up.

Definitely true. Just look at their stupid Macbooks. They are all over $1000 and severely underpowered compared to their PC counterparts. All you pay for is the stupid Apple logo and the case.

Yea I can see graphics cards going up at least 15% when this comes true. I like the os ok, but ffs anyone who doesn't need a man gladly paying the apple tax on hardware is an elitist.

May be true, but what I want to happen is for the idiots at MS to see a piece of their pie being taken by a hated competitor, and actually start porting exclusives to pc and supporting the platform like they claim they do.

Personally wouldn't have a bit of trouble ditching Windows if another OS could support the gamut of titles I like.
