But Microsoft and Gates smartly bought out Bungiesoft, and their next Mac game Halo got quickly made into a PC/XBox only affair.
Actually, Bungie was making Halo for awhile as a PC and Mac game. The buyout changed the deal into an Xbox only affair. I remember after E3 2000 when the announcement was made that it was being changed from PC/Mac to Xbrick only, I was really pissed. So basically, this wasn't so much as a way to remove gaming from the Mac as it was to boost their new console coming out.
