    PS3 OpenGL ports for Mac/Linux?

    I read somewhere that the new Playstation3 will use the OpenGL graphics language. Does this mean we'll see more ports of PS3 games for Mac and Linux?
    That'd be cool!

    Well, they'll get ported to Windows PCs first, so take the total number of games that get made for PS3, take the number of those that get ported to PC, and then take a small bit of that number. It's unlikely many will be ported; the real money is in consoles, then PCs after that. Macs and Linux are niche markets with not great buying power comparatively, which will likely not make developers make the effort.

    Plus, the graphics language isn't the major issue for ports.
