Apple recruits game designers, for iPhone?

Apple expands games dev

Apple is reportedly looking to expand its game development staff this summer; the company is recruiting students from the Savannah College of Art and Design for advanced graphics artists. According to the report, students report receiving an e-mail from a recruiter looking for game developers for Apple to create "high quality 3D and 2D art for games." The message was not specific as to whether the company was looking to expand its growing iPod gaming platform (which launched last fall) or for the upcoming iPhone or possible games for Apple TV, as hinted by execs from Popcap games. Reports emerged this past weekend indicating that Electronic Arts is in talks with EA about games for the forthcoming iPhone.

    How about the Mac?

    Hey Apple, have you forgotten all about the Mac? We need some games on the Mac, since we currently have just about ZERO!

    EA ?= Electronic Arts

    "Reports emerged this past weekend indicating that Electronic Arts is in talks with EA about games for the forthcoming iPhone."

    I thought they were the same company. This is confusing.

    Anyway, Apple's college recruiters are notoriously terrible. They'll probably s**** this up.

    Use Parallels

    If you want games on your Mac.

    Parallels?

    Parallels doesn't (yet) support 3D acceleration, so this is a no-go for games. Still have to bootcamp it.
