You kind of have to wonder if we’re looking at a revolution moment like the time when the iPod came out. EA (Electronic Arts to the old skool’rs) announced today that it was publishing some of it’s most popular games on Mac OS X. Note that it’s EA that’s publishing the title, not a port by a popular gamehouse like MacPlay.
These games run on Mac OS X. The AppleTV runs Mac OS X. Put it together and the results are obvious.
But it doesn’t have enough video memory!
Whatever. How much memory do you think that the Xbox 360 has anyway? With the full overhead of the desktop version of OS X, the AppleTV could run it. How long before we start to see someone hack the AppleTV with the larger hard drive to handle something like this?
