    If you haven't checked out InsideMacGames today:

    Lego Star Wars coming to the Mac: http://insidemacgames.com/news/story.php?ID=10976

    I have my doubts it'll run on my iMac G4 (even though it looks like a lightweight game), but this was definitely a game I was excited about when it was announced for the consoles and PC. Now it's coming to the Mac!

    Unreal 3 and Aegia has an Aspyr connection: http://insidemacgames.com/news/story.php?ID=10975

    Aegia creates some sort of physics processing unit (PPU). Some interesting possibilities can happen with Aspyr being a partner. It may be one of the ways to get around Havok, but I am not completely sure about that, so don't take my word for it.

    Erm, Lego StarWars video game? What's next? Oh well, I'll keep an open mind.

    It's implied.

    I suspect the chip will be on a PCI-X/PCI card, add it to your G5, and you have a PPU.

    Yes, I was thinking that too. Though I doubt it will be PCI. PCI-X has a much faster speed
