Some bad news: The last paragraph is the most important though. Don't count it out just yet. The Mac publisher would be unwilling to take the risk just yet with the kinds of machines we have right now. Based on the article, I would suspect a usual porting project would cost a few hundreds of thousands of dollars to get the rights. Sounds like Valve/Sierra are being a--holes again, this time by demanding a high price (think over a million dollars, very high for a port). Remember, BF1942 was sure to not come out because Dice was so uptight about its code. Aspyr finally got the rights and we got BF1942. I am very sure once we have more Macs that are gaming capable (like, say, a few G5 iMacs), the publisher will take the risk then or work something out by then. Alright, bring on the doom-sayers and pessimists.
