You're kidding right?

Valve specifically tailors their games to the low end of the hardware market, similar to Blizzard. The HL2 engine is DX9, not 10, and runs great on a huge range of hardware... including and most specifically store-bought PCs with stock videocards and processors.

If I recall correctly, there are only two games on the market designed for the PhysX PPU (both of which have GRAW in their title). Not to mention that the Half-Life 2 engine specifically uses the Havok SDK as opposed to the PhysX SDK.

There might be a mac gaming market (I sincerely doubt it) to promote, but don't generalize about the established PC market if you don't know what you're talking about.

Technology is dominated by those who manage what they do not understand.

Working...
