Epic Games Finally Releases Unreal SDK With OS X Support
Epic Games has finally released an Update for their Unreal Engine SDK that supports OS X. This means Unreal 3 engine based games (there is a lot) can be played natively on OS X.
This development has the potential to finally bring games like Gears of War and Unreal Tournament to the OS X platform. However, Epic promised to port the games to OS X four years, and multiple sequels ago. While the new SDK does support OS X, developers will still need to port their games over to OS X, which isn’t as simple as clicking a button. It’ll be interesting to see how many developers port their games over especially games that are years old, or currently deep into development.
However, this isn’t the first Apple operating system Epic has supported. Epic ported the Unreal 3 engine to iOS devices nearly two years ago and it has been used in games like Infinity Blade, and RAGE HD. A number of other studios including LucasArts and Gameloft have pledged to support the Unreal 3 Engine on iOS devices in future releases as well.
PC gaming and the Apple operating systems haven’t had the best of relationships over the years. Actually, they’ve barely had a relationship. Most titles come years later if ever, and the few saving graces have been Valve Studios and Blizzard releases. Hopefully the release of the new Unreal SDK and iOS’s massive (and growing) install base can help sway developers OS X’s way.

If your a serious gamer, PC is where is at. It will take years before Mac OS catches up, if it ever. I can never see Mac OS having anything like BF3 or COD3. You don't only need software, but you need good gaming hardware as well. Imagine the price of a "Gaming Mac" vs. PC? Lol.... ya, game over!

Hi. Epic didn't have anything to do with RAGE HD.
That was from id Software and used the id Tech 5 engine. Just pointing out your mistake.
