    Okay lads and ladies, a challenge for you.

    I have been eyeing up one of the new Aspyr releases, namely Guitar Hero 3, for play on my iMac. However, there's just the slight issue with finding any retailers, save Apple themselves, who actually sell games for Macintosh. Seeing as Aspyr are going to release a Mac version I would rather get that one, instead of buying the PC one and hoping it works through Bootcamp (or am I going to have to boot into Windows just to play games, based on poor availability?)

    In this case, could anyone recommend places online or offline where I can try and get hold of this and perhaps any other Mac games from - bonus points for being based in the UK/EU. I have tried Amazon.co.uk but they don't have a great selection and Play do not even stock Mac stuff.

    Answers on a postcard and thanks for any responses regarding my question.

    Apple Retail Stores, Amazon.com, and macgamestore.com are my usual haunts for obtaining Mac games. I'm in Iowa so I don't know what the international implications of those sources are.

    I want to know if there are any Australian retailers, specifically in Sydney. I still have not seen C&C3 here...

    I had a friend who was studying and traveling in the EU and since he didn't know anyplace to pick up mac stuff he ordered internationally. I know that he used ClubMac and MacConnection will take international orders over the phone. Instead of Amazon UK you may try Amazon.com which will ship international and stocks different stuff than the UK one.

    -Good luck:)

    Hey guys, thanks for the ideas. I expect Apple will probably stock it, but if not, I guess I gotta buy the PC version.
