Also, keep in mind WHY they are doing remakes of BG and MDK. Its to get marketshare for beamdog.

While there may be some truth to that for the Windows version, I don't think it is the full picture. Porting to IOS is not minimal effort, nor is it promoting Beamdog. The same goes for Andriod. And while there was a Macintosh version of Bauldur's Gate... it was for Power PC Macs using OS 9 (BG on Mac was released 1 year before OSX)... so I'm pretty sure they'd have to port it to x86 Unix to get on the Mac App Store, which again doesn't promote Beamdog. I dont think Apple accepts apps that require Rosetta Emulation anymore because it is not licensed for Lion nor Mountain Lion (and onward), hence requiring a full port.

Granted... the Mac version will probably be their smallest Audience... But the IOS and Andriod versions will probably outsell the PC versions... mainly because it will be one of the few AAA games (as we PC Gamers know them) available for the tablet platform.
