    Just found this on Digg. It looks like Mac gamers and PC gamers will get Spore on the same day.

    Linky.

    Thats great news. I've been anxiously awaiting for Spore to released. The fact that it will be made for the Mac platform too is even better. Thanks for posting this. :D

    The fact that this awesome concept is actually coming out this year is the best news! On a mac is just that much better.

    I'll pass, and pick it up on one of the other platforms. It's not a native Mac port, but one of the Cider ports. According to a post in the other Spore thread, they haven't been that good....

    Why do they bother to give us unoptimised ports? (if what the above post is saying is true) Seems a bit pointless to me. However, the Mac EVE cider port was certainly improved performance-wise after a month or so after its release.


    Regardless, I'm getting it, whether for Mac or PC.

    EDIT: just read the article and "The upshot, he added, is that from a user's standpoint, playing Spore on a Mac should be a seamless experience, with no noticeable differences from the PC version."

    So it shouldn't be a problem.
