EA Makes Big Announcement at WWDC

Bing Gorden co-founder of Electronic Arts announced that they want to and are going to be in the Mac game(no pun intended). This is what I’m talking about and what some of you said in the comments section on my previous article.

EA is answering the call by releasing at the same time in July Command and Conquer 3, Battlefield 2142, Need for Speed: Carbon, and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix(believe it or not, but it looks pretty good). Bing also announced that they would also be releasing simultaneously their Madden and Tiger Woods games to the Mac.

ID founder John Carmack also made an appearance to show off some new technology they are going to be implementing into their new games which will be shown off at E3, it would be a safe bet to say it will have an OSX release, only what is it, plus the fact that they are at the conference gets me all excited.

So a huge announcement from EA saying they are going to give us Mac gamers what we want, and making it a timely release. Now we have to show them that we want this by supporting them, and purchasing the games.

What do you think about these new developments?

    Ithink its great. So many PC people say “Macs are no fun, they have no games”. Finally there is no reason to not swith to the Mac!

    I agree with Adam and Victor… This is not such a spectacular thing from EA, if it’s based on emulation. John Carmack’s engine seemed more impressive and may have huge potential on the Mac if it’s based specifically on OS X technology, which I’m not sure it is.

    I’m mostly concerned about why these developers won’t make a Mac OS X native version. I keep hearing about the cider project. I don’t mind it really but is it an emulator? I can’t see the developers making Mac versions of their software that will run slower than Windows.
