Its strange that BO2 isn't out on Mac yet as Borderlands 2 was out within a month or so. By the way, Macs are more efficient at running software as its designed differently than Windows. I have a PC and Mac and prefer gaming on the Mac as its much faster with less hardware. Unfortunately there are also fewer games and I haven't been game enough to try dual booting.

Pretty sure the new iMac would disagree with you. 3.4GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x4GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX Which games can that setup not run? Or according to you, not get past the main menu?

That may be only useful for rendering, and maybe you can enjoy the 2 graphically nice games it supports, but it's quite retarded to purchase a 3k dollars big weird monitor which u can't upgrade lol

And tbh, those stupidly expensive imacs are a waste, nothing beats a matching dual monitor setup ... for half the price with equal or better specs and the ability to overclock without cooking a ham. Macs look pretty, but thats as far as it goes. brilliant for computer-illeterate consumors or art college kids that grow up believing its somehow better for design yet has less options and crashes more often than windows 7. Good times.

Well Photoshop did run slightly better in Mac OSX than Windows 7, but that's hardly a compelling reason to buy a Mac over a PC.

That's because there hasn't been a decent enough population of Mac gamers. Which is because they haven't had decent enough gaming gpu's. The production of Mac-compatible games has risen, and will continue to rise. With large companies like Valve supporting mac, it's only a matter of time before there is a decent library of games on the platform.

:lol: There are not many rich kids interested in computer gaming. The term "Mac Gamers" causes helpless laughter on me.

It's not about good gaming gpu's or whatever. Those are prebuilt ultra overpriced machines that will never get good support from large companies.

The average rich kid opts for alienware anyday.

Which is why I don't suspect you're a reasonable person to assess the future of video games on Apple hardware.. Personal feelings aside, there is a rising number of games on the platform, and more planned for the future. There is no debating the numbers. This is tossing aside the fact that you can already play Windows games on a Windows partition. It doesn't matter what the average 'rich kid' does. There is a population of consumers that prefer products such as the iMac and they play games on them. For some odd reason that seems to anger a lot of this forum and I'm not quite sure why. Just let people do their thing, who cares.

I like how you guys seem to think your unqualified opinions matter. It's a porting problem, plain and simple. Treyarch is going where their market is and that means first a launch to PC/XBox because they'll sell more games that way. They don't sell as much to Mac users so they don't start there but will get there eventually. It's all got NOTHING to do with how "good" Macs are vs. PCs, and while I'm sure your indignity helps you to sleep better at night when you dis Macs just because you don't happen to own one you sound amazingly uninformed. It's like if someone were to ask your opinion about the SF Giants and you respond by saying "I HATE THE GIANTS!" That might be true but they still won the World Series last year and that fact pretty solidly trumps your opinion.

Wow, Stop paying out macs people.. It's ok that you cannot afford a apple product.. Not the end of the world no need to be jealous.. Also i'm sorry to embarress you infront of your friends man, However you have ALOOOOOT to learn lol, Hardware has nothing to do with running games, Well it plays a small role in it yes, However depending how the development is done it can be ran on any hardware. Advanced graphics rendering (ray tracing, real time shadow mapping etc.) will of course need a more up to date hardware set in which mac is completly supported of currently. However you're saying every mac in the world crashes while doing design tasks, First of all i'd just like to remind you people that this topic is about call of duty release not about saying "I dont like macs", You are of course entitled to your opinion. As i was saying i've created a full multiplayer gaming website with over 200 clients playing and enjoying my multiplayer games. I create the design on a macbook pro. Mac's are no good for you clients, It's US DEVELOPERS who use mac os x to create gaming and software for you windows folks. Also did you know that a majority of code for example java language will run on a mac, pc or linux after compile.. The only reason call of duty and other "game studio's" don't support mac is because they don't have the time nor money nor find it profitable enough to build for mac. The majority of the game market is developed using Direct3D (DirectX Graphics - Windows only). To run games on mac and ensure cross compatibility it's OpenGL graphics library. So please guys keep in mind when you are teasing macs, I registered only because of some of these posts. Don't say anything bad if you don't understand a thing beyond "hardware". Thanks, Macko
