Here’s some good news for Mac owners, I suppose. EA’s Origin is coming to Mac, and SimCity in February will be functional on the platform. My first ever experience of SimCity was on a Mac so this has a nice symmetry to it for me. Unfortunately, I’ve only ever heard bad things about Origin so I’ll reserve judgement for a while.
EA is also bringing the service to Android and Facebook. We’re not entirely sure how that will pan out but it will probably have something to do with prompting you to spend money as often as it can.
There were no guarantees made for Mac compatibility of other titles just yet so we might end up with a fairly limited catalogue, as with the Steam library of Mac compatible software, but it’s a step in the right direction.
