Does anyone know if IW will be ported for the Mac-using Deus Ex fans out there? I own Deus Ex for the Mac, and would like to play the sequel using my favorite operating system. Thanks in advance!

According to Chris Carollo, there are currently no plans to port DX2 to the mac.

If DX2 sells well on PC and Xbox, Eidos will probably want to start working on a mac version. But it would have to be released quite a ways off. Say, around the time everyone else is enjoying DX3.

I know this is troll bait... but I just had to point out G5 (http://www.apple.com/powermac/)

:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
And so, the G5 was indeed the fastest in terms of benchmarks... but apparently only after Apple tweaked the systems. Yes, that's right, more benchmark cheating. This ExtremeTech article has most of the nitty-gritty: http://firingsquad.gamers.com/news/newsarticle.asp?searchid=5242
Update: My fears about these benchmarks have apparently been valid. This site has plenty of details about how Apple twisted results and crippled the P4 and Xeon scores. You can get the details of the testing here to back it up. If you want to see where I got the SPEC CPU2000 scores then click here. http://www.amdzone.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=1296&page=2

Sorry some of the context of my post is gone. I was responding to a troll post that is now gone.

I am by no means saying the G5 is the fastest PC around. Just that it can hold it's own against any Intel or AMD based PC.

Apple's response to the G5 bench marks bashing, posted on slashdot (http://apple.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=03/06/24/2154256&mode=thread&tid=126&tid=181)

Thanks! I guess all I can do is cross my fingers and pray :)

Pray, but don't hold your breath. Worst-case scenario, it'll be a while.

hmmm how long has it been between DX1(PC) and DX1(MAC)?
