    I have saw many times people talking about PS2 coming out for mac, but there have been no recent posts or news on the subject. What I would like to know is if it is still being worked on or if it is going to happen at all. Im sure all of us Mac users can't wait to get it downloaded.

    One does not simply buy a Mac to game.

    Not going to happen. Ever. Microsoft won't port DirectX to OSX. OpenGL ports work for crappy older games on the Source engine but won't work for Planetside. Run bootcamp or better yet buy a PC.

    Ok, so apparently OpenGL 4.3 will do all the same fancy stuff as DirectX 11 but given there isn't a single popular game using it while there are literally hundreds of games on Dx11. Well it kind of speaks volumes.

    It's so freaking hard not to mac vs pc, Buh.

    You need a windows operating system to run this game.

    Killing Floor is a Direct X game which can run on a Mac, so it is possible but there will still have to be adjustments made for it to run at an optimal level on a mac which SOE may not be inclined to do.

    Macs are useful if you are wanting to avoid spending money on games rather than studying.
    Also gives the person higher swag value at cafes.

    It's in the works, cant remember when I last heard it mentioned, I think in the community development meeting Higby mentioned it in response to someone asking the question. You can find the video on azuretwilight's twitch channel.... though im not too sure where in the vid it is, probably about 70-80% of the way through when they're answering some final questions.
