I think EA will be missing a significant audience if they don't make a Mac version of the game. I know PC still dominates the desktop market but it's not as strong as it used to be. If they can make the Sims for Mac...why not Simcity?
It has been announced that this game will be released for Mac day and date with the PC version, but Amazon isn't updating their page for some reason. It'll most likely be on the same disc as other EA games have been. EA and Blizzard are usually good for Mac support for games.
Seems they're at least not going to do it as a PC port. Not sure if there's anything special being done for the Mac version beyond just making it native and supporting OS-specific features properly (a good thing, nonetheless).
According to the FAQ section on the Sim City game site, there will be a Mac version. There are also recommended specs for the Mac listed under the game as well. Strange thing is there is no place to buy the Mac version. You can preorder the PC version, but it doesn't say anything about being compatible with the Mac.
On the plus side, it sounds like it'll be a good experience in that they're making it native and it shouldn't be hampered in any way. Plus, you can play side-by-side with PC gamers so no platform silos.
Yeah, given what the FAQ stated, it's questionable. They said "Spring" so who knows? But something tells me it's still up in the air whether it'll be a dual OS release or not. Probably need to see if it'll work over the next month (might have more issues than PC right now).
Yeah, it's coming out for Mac, just might take another month or so (maybe not). I suspect it's just a lower priority to the PC release (since they've got to release something). On the plus side, bear in mind they're making it native, no Mac porting business here.
I bought The Sims 3, and Spore when they were released, and they included Mac versions. Are they saying that won't also be the case with this? Or will I still be able to download the Mac version when it is later released? Because I won't be buying it unless it includes both PC and Mac versions.
Just contacted EA. The say you can preoder the disc version of the game and that it is a PC/MAC version. However the dowload and Deluxe edition will not work for mac. They say they are "working" on a mac version of the deluxe edition, but as of right now, there is not info. They say just wait......
