What does the Mac App Store mean for you?

What will the new App store going to do for you? The new digital distribution system for Macintosh applications will soon be coming to an OSX near you. Instead of having to go into an Apple retail store, or buy online, you will soon be able to just point, click, and buy that piece of software you were looking for. It boasts all kinds of bells and whistles like multi-touch and auto-updates. The real question I want to know, is will people use it? Will it feature games from their 3rd party game developers like Call of Duty, Maden, or Tiger Woods? In an era where digital distribution reigns supreme and Apple seems to be leading the way with iTunes and their other app store for the iPad and iPod, was this really a big leap for Apple? I think not. The real question for me is, whether or not it will actually suit a true Mac user’s needs and fill the gap between Quake Live and Steam. There is this huge hole where other developers could be capitalizing on digital game sales and now they might have an answer to their distribution problem. I honestly hope this takes off and in a big way.

About Mac Emulators
I am an Old School gamer with roots in emulation and gaming. I love video games, but mostly I love the old ones from our past. Emulation is a way to experience all these old games on your personal computer.
