Why The Orange Box Will Not Be Coming To Mac OS X

With The Orange Box launching very, very soon on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, Valve co-founder Gabe Newell has revealed why we will NOT be seeing any of the Half-Life iterations on lovely Mac OS X anytime soon.

"...we have this pattern with Apple, where we meet with them, people there go "wow, gaming is incredibly important, we should do something with gaming". And then we'll say, "OK, here are three things you could do to make that better", and then they say OK, and then we never see them again."

Despite EA's current support for the Apple operating system, it seems that Valve are running into some problems when it comes to porting their games across. It' a shame really.
