    Thank you

    Thanks a lot grahamtearne, I would have replied earlier, but I was busy getting BootCamp installed. Today after work, I will have Madden in hand. This really beats waiting around for the windows emulator "Mac" version of the game to be released. Again, thanks a lot for the posts and the video.

    Touchdown!!!!


    Sweet...I was still playing Madden 06 on my Xbox, but recently it just crapped out. So I might spring for the PC version since I recently installed VMWare Fusion.

    It isn't emulation it's API translation or replication.

    Secondly, I don't see any shadows in the video either. It doesn't look that much more spectacular then the original Unreal Tournament to me besides the polygons.

    Cant win can you lol. People say the GMA950 cant run anything thats playable etc. Look guys this is a 13inch laptop, we shouldnt expect amazing effects or anything, noone should be buying this laptop as their primary gaming machine and I am not trying to say it can be. What Im fed up of is people saying its totaly useless, it isnt. This is proof of it playing a new game, very smooth at decent settings, come on guys. I think its fantastic, looks ok and plays great.

    Is it playable? Yes.

    It looks just fine to me on the GMA950 if you're not expecting anything that looks better then a circa 2001 game. Does that make it a bad game? No!

    The majority of my games are from 1997-2001. I love them more then anything out right now. :p

    Care to try again?

    It looks a lot like the regular Xbox version...not saying anything bad about it. It does look good. How does it play? I couldn't tell from the video if the keyboard was being used as the controller or a PS3/Xbox type controller.

    Hi there, it plays very well indeed. My brother was playing using his Xbox360 controller. We often play two player games both using the xbox controllers.

    How do you do that exactly? Do you just plug it into the USB port and it works, or is there some process?
