MS to translate Mac games
Microsoft may help the by releasing a series of newly translated games. Wired News says that currently only two popular (localized) games that are available (Railroad Tycoon and Sega's Puyo-Puyo Fever), but that Microsoft will translate, market, and support as many games as possible: "Microsoft didn't specify which titles will be released in the Mac Games Collection, or how many. However, Microsoft's Kazama stressed there will be 'more and more.' She said the company will carefully select the best games, fully translate them to Japanese (not just translate some menus and text), and said the games would be optimized to run on most PowerBooks and iBooks."
