CrossOver Games

CodeWeavers today unveiled CrossOver Games, a new optimized version to its Windows virtualization software designed to function exclusively with games. The software is already compatible with a number of different Windows game titles, such as World of Warcraft, Guild Wars, Team Fortress 2, Counterstrike, and Civilization 4, among others. CrossOver Games is available for both Mac and Linux platforms for $40, which includes one year of support and updates.

"One of the differences between CrossOver Games and our current CrossOver products is that it's going to be a little more 'bleeding edge'," said Jeremy White, President and CEO of CodeWeavers. "The Wine development community, including CodeWeavers, is cranking out a lot of important improvements to game support. We want to get those improvements into the hands of gamers now. CrossOver Games, we think, will fit in with the edgier technology needs of gamers."

    Goody goody.

    Good thing it's compatible with a bunch of already Mac-compatible games. What would we have done without them?

    could you please

    point me to mac versions of Team Fortress 2 or Guild Wars? The orange box was PC game of the year last year and Mac users were out in the cold. I know its silly to play WOW or Civilization, but there are still lots of windows only games on that list.

    Now let's see how well it works though.
