I'm quite curious about how games perform on the new retina Macbook. Could someone who owns one share some impressions on how it runs games like Starcraft 2?

My 11" Macbook Air ran Starcraft 2 pretty nicely, I expect a similar thing on the 12". There are a couple of videos in YouTube that look promising: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCp9HZwbecdEwXkvIe64iUnwI expect horrendously, but I myself am curious about it
Because if people are buying a portable machine it makes sense they might want to do a bit of light gaming while travelling, probably the main use case for the device?
Though your post is old, I'd like to add even as a huge Mac fan a console is a superior gaming platform than any Macintosh purely on developer support alone. If the debate's purely between a Mac or a console I'd go console every time.Eww consoles D: PC > console anyday for me
I find enjoyment on a non-console platform more enjoyable due to the input. Therefore to me, consoles are inferior. And also I said "PC", not specifically macs. I will agree that development for mac gaming lacks support, but if the argument was windows, it would be another story. Also desktop towers have upgradable components whereas the console gets dated and is just tossed in the corner somewhere when the new one is purchased. I just find consoles impractical. It is my opinion, and you are entitled to your preference as well.Though your post is old, I'd like to add even as a huge Mac fan a console is a superior gaming platform than any Macintosh purely on developer support alone.

Don't understand the 'eww consoles' comment either, some of the most enjoyable and definitive gaming experiences ever were on consoles (Mario 64, Mario Bros, Goldeneye, MGS1, Silent Hill 2 etc). The anti-console sentiment is silly and veiled-fanboyism.
