Do you think Apple will ever take an interest in gaming? They have a better computer, and OS and seem better in every way except gaming, which they seem like they could really care less about, but yet it is a huge market.

I think the gaming market is on Apple's "todo" shortlist of world dominance. Gaming on the iPhone is going to be pretty remarkable, I think. It's going to put Apple on the map in regards to mobile gaming.

Yeah but I referring to PC gaming, games like BF 2142 and flight sim stuff like that, not just arcade games.

Not for a while. That's a tough market to crack, and Apple's doing just fine without it for the time being. I think the iPhone will be their foray into gaming.

I don't see how you could game on an i phone as you would need more memory and a faster processor, and the keyboard is not game friendly at all.

Well, I think that Apple has been thinking a lot about the concept of Mac gaming lately. This is evident in the fact that they recently bought up a huge deal with EA games, and they are certainly leaning towards gaming.

Battlefield 2142 is already available for Macs, and there are flight simulators available. Check out Apple's website and Store.
