    Just wondering, how long does it take for a PC windows game to come out on Mac?

    More specifically - Will Desperate Housewives be coming to Mac?

    1) Sometimes 6 months to a year. If at all.. which leads me to #2.

    2) It's probably unlikely that it will.

    Games have to be ported to work in OS X, and if they are developed with DirectX (which most games are), it's a bitch to port them. So, companies that do the porting have to spend a lot of time and energy to port a game. So, only games that are heavily expected to generate VERY HIGH SALES get ported.

    Beyond this.. Since intel Macs now boot Windows, people can play games in Windows. This could be the death knell of porting games to the Mac.

    My feeling is that DH:The Game isn't likely to be ported to the Mac.

    I think there are a couple of more pertinent questions here
    A) Why is there desparate housewives game

    B) Why do YOU want a desperate housewives game

    C) You could just play the sims 2

    I'm guessing this will be a right out porn game....what else can you do...sneak around like splinter cell and steal pies?

    Throw dirt on white towels hanging out to dry?
    Seduce the other husbands in the area?
    Listening on other wives conversations?
    Beating the time limit: Picking up the kids from school

    I don't watch the show so somebody help me here.



    Bless
