GOW, UT3 for Mac

Epic Games' Vice President Mark Rein has officially announced that Gears of War and Unreal Tournament 3 will both be released for Mac OS X. Rein makes the announcement in a video hosted by Gametrailers.com. Gears of War is a tactical third-person shooter video game that is based on the Unreal 3 engine. It features the Delta Force fighting against an invasion of the "Locust Horde." The game debuted for Xbox in November 2006, and has since gained a loyal following and tremendous sales, moving more than 3 million units in just 10 weeks. Microsoft confirmed it would deliver a Windows version of Gears of War at E3 2007 last week, though it's still not clear whether there will be a simultaneous platform release. Unreal Tournament 3, the sequel to Unreal Tournament 2004, will be designed primarily for multiplayer gaming, but will also feature a story-line for single-player gaming. Unreal Tournament 3 is scheduled to ship for the PC and Playstation 3 in November 2007 -- no Mac OS X release date has been announced.

    GoW worth buying?

    Does it have an interesting story to follow like Marathon or the varied game play of Deux Ex?

    Unreal 2004 sucked. I'd rather see them port the original Unreal Tourny to OS X.

    Um, UT 2004 is regarded as the best of the tournament series, and both the original Unreal and Unreal Tourney were ported to OS X years ago.
