Interesting article. Justification, if it ever were needed, that multi-platform game development is not only feasible, but beneficial. After all, they do it for PS2 and Xbox, so why not macs?

It's something that budding developers and games designers should heed, and, for that matter, Microsoft. Why should a punter have to shell out an extra £500 to write software that endorses your platform (and not other, in MS case)?
