Games Despite what many (including myself) thought when EA announced they would support the Mac platform, the games EA will release are actually not native ports - instead, they will use Transgaming's Cider engine, a Wine-like wrapper for running Windows games on Intel Macs. This news was found in a Transgaming press release. Apart from the fact that this might negatively affect performance, it also means PowerPC Macs will not be able to play these games.

Thing is, if Apple (or anyone else for that matter) look like they have a system moving awesome game coming out for their platform Microsoft can always come along and offer the developer a boatload of money to make it an Xbox (or Windows) exclusive.
