OS X Looking to Become a Gaming Heavyweight

When it comes to gaming, PCs blow away their Mac counterparts. There's no doubt about that. But the PC's edge could be a thing of the past if TransGaming and Nvidia have it their way. Together, they're working on a way to bring PC games to the Mac the second they're released. They reckon they can do this by creating a Mac version of Microsoft's Direct3D, which would rely on TransGaming's Cider engine and Nvidia's CgFX graphics system. So what does that mean for Mac fans? You won't have to wait half a year for your favorite PC games to be ported over to OS X (or hit up Boot Camp to run your games). If that's not a reason for fanboys to rejoice, I don't know what is.
