It looks like Apple has learned to live with and even embrace its accidental gaming empire, to the point where it’s actually being proactive in going after the core gamer demographic. The big announcements at WWDC this year were certainly iOS 6 and the Macbook Pro refresh, but one of the first applications to be shown off taking advantage of the vaunted Retina display was none other than one of PC gaming’s strongest franchises.
“You are going to see a gaming experience unlike any you’ve seen before,” Apple’s Phil Schiller said when introducing Diablo 3 running in 2880 x 1800. Coupled with the announcement of Game Center coming to OSX Mountain Lion, it seems that Diablo 3 is leading the charge for a much more game-centric Apple strategy.
