AJ Collins at RockstarNexus reports that Max Payne 3 for Mac, to be release on Steam, is currently testing.

A recent update to Steam’s game database has revealed Rockstar is in the testing stages of an OSX port of Max Payne 3 using TransGaming’s Cider technology. The tech has been used in the past to bring other Rockstar titles to OSX such as the Grand Theft Auto III trilogy. While the port has not yet been officially announced, the evidence is pretty solid.

PSN Hacked Again (yes again)

Something is really wrong with Sony PlayStation as it gets hacked very often. The PSN or PlayStation Network credentials of 10 million users have been hacked and posted on the internet, by a group of hackers.

Although Sony has said that the PSN was not hacked, it is bit hard for me to believe, as have saw the user id and password hashes, with email id posted on the net.(No I am not sharing the link with you)

It is advisable to change the password of your PSN id.
