GameSpy isn't in the business of giving things away for free
As I repeated said, Gamespy appears to do it for some games so long as the SDK is not used. Used only in the specific terms I described below, a license isn't necessary for ports of an already supported game.
That also brings up a related point which shows how unreasonable and hollow the complaints of the Macintosh game publishers are. For Macintosh developers and publishers to be crying about the license fees relative to low sales volume is specious when you look at the list of games which Gamespy supports ( http://www.gamespyarcade.com/games/
) Surely, the Macintosh versions of games like Medal of Valor sell more copies than PC games like "Bumper Wars!" or "Takeout Weight Curling". Since the developers and publishers of those and other small, obscure PC games can afford to license Gamespy for their games then so can Macintosh developers and publishers like Aspyr and MacPlay. It's time for those cheap Macintosh publishers to have to pay like everyone else.This comment was edited on Dec 9, 21:25.
