hi all, just thought i'd start off my account here with a topic about how gaming companies coding for the gamecube might find it easier to either port or write new games for the macintosh platform. this might have been brought up already but it seems like a good sign that nintendo decided to use the g4 for their new system. and once these game companies fuss out all the optimization issues with the altivec engine, they might be more inclined to give it a go with osx. maybe this is already happening. anyway, i finally registered to macrumors after reading it for months... hello to everyone!
