    Don't you love automatic responses?

    Note that even though I know that there's no Mac version, I'm still taking the 'assume there is one' route, hopefully that will make these game companies see that we expect all games, if that makes sense.

    Anyway, the reply:

    Lovely, isn't it? :rolleyes:

    Damn, and I thought you received a hint that FarCry will be ported when I saw the thread title.

    The response is in there some where in some abstract way. And you know it, dammit! :p ;)

    I think the highlight of their reply is the link to region-free DVD firmware ;)

    They just followed up:

    I find it interesting that they don't consider UT2004, Doom 3, etc to be high-end.

    Doom 3, BF1942, XIII, CoD, UT2K4 are five high-end 3D games I can think of. When I think of games without a Mac version, I think of Battlefield Vietnam, but I can't think of something else. What else is there? (And don't talk about Half Life 2 or Stalker, these aren't even out on PC.)

    Although their response is mistaken, you can't blame their attitude. There probably isn't yet a big enough market of Macs fast enough to play this game. I don't know how the iMac's 5200 would cope.

    BF1942 was high-end 2 years ago.

    After pointing this out to them, they replied with a message implying that Ubisoft don't make those games, therefore they're not high-end :eek:
