We continue to offer a sampling of live presentations from the recently concluded Macworld Expo trade show with a session on Mac gaming hosted by Game Room columnist Peter Cohen.

Peter is joined by a panel of Mac gaming luminaries— Ian Lynch Smith, president of Freeverse Software; Leah Heck, marketing director for Aspyr Media; and Chris Bentley of graphics card maker ATI Technologies. Their topic: the present and future of Mac gaming, with particular attention paid to Apple’s transition to Intel-supplied processors and its impact on game developers.
