    has anyone purchased this direct from EA and downloaded it? the standard version says it's for the PC platform....the collectors edition says it's PC/MAC compatable....any thoughts? i will be running it on OS X, and don't want to pay for the collector's edition.
    has anyone done this?

    Have you tried Direct2Drive? They have the regular edition mac version. I believe either EA also owns and/or operates Direct2Drive.

    I got it from Direct2Drive, though I accidentally pre-ordered the PC version. Though I was told they're interchangeable.

    Has anyone managed to download the game and get it working in OS X? I'm considering doing so and I'd like to know if it will actually work!:D

    I have. It runs great, despite a few small bugs that seem to be plaguing everyone regardless of system specs.
