GameTap Drops Mac Support


Posted March 4, 2009 - By Stephen Johnson

GameTap LogoGame downloading service GameTap is changing. In about 2 weeks, Tappers will have access to a re-designed GameTap website, and a new plug-in that lets players launch games from the desktop, start menu or from GameTap.com.

Good news, right? Not if you're on a Mac. Once the changes take effect, Apple computers won't be supported. Ouch. The indignity continues for Mac gamers.

A full list of changes is below the cut.

  • Desktop and Start Menu shortcuts for every game.
  • All arcade and console games play right in the browser.
  • Firefox support for in-browser play.
  • Manage download queue and favorites in browser.
  • Faster loading times.
  • Additional subscription options.
  • Simplified multi-computer use.
  • Better search and navigation tools.
  • New forum software.
  • Customizable avatars.
  • Improved parental controls.
  • Updated digital download store with a better selection and competitive prices.
