Until now, SimCity has been a largely PC-only affair. It was announced as a PC/Mac exclusive, but the Apple side of things has remained awfully quiet... until today. While we still don't have a release date for the Mac version - and yes, it is launching after the PC copy - we do have a few more details about what's in store for our Apple-flavoured friends.
However, the benefits of working out a new version means that it can do everything the developers want, including running on relatively low-spec machines (Snow Leopard + Core 2 processor), and this nifty little revelation:
Everyone is playing together on the same servers. That means PC and Mac users will be building the world of tomorrow, together.
Other big news: You'll be able to get Limited and Digital Deluxe editions of SimCity for Mac, but this version of the game will only be available as a digital download - sorry to all of you who wanted a boxed copy.
