    Big question is if they'll have the same DRM as they did on the PC, if that's still the big thing everyone's talking about.

    Most people are playing games on windows. Gamers with a mac are having a dual boot most of the time

    True that.

    The lack of game development for OS X along with the crappy porting efforts and the shitstorm that is OpenGL make most Mac games either unavailable or just plain crap. I've resorted to dual-booting just to play games.

    Though some games are greatly ported. BioShock was recoded from the ground up for Macs, and it came out beautifully, only with a slightly lower performance (due to OpenGL's ineptitude against DirectX).

    Ubisoft, if you care, please don't Cider it.

    Do you purposely only read a select few words in every post, or are you just naturally idiotic?
